One reason that I really LOVE the peruvians is that they are all so generous. In the first latino group we came in with, if they were standing up without lunch trays, they would take them from us and put them away (for the sisters mostly). And they are always so gracious about letting the sisters go up first. The north americans do it a little more grudgingly (not all, there are a few north americans that are very gracious). And on the bus, the men will stand up to let the women sit, or older people.
So, sometimes me and my companion/roommates will try and talk to the latinos, thinking we can carry on a conversation....NOPE. I have no idea what some of them are saying. It definitely helps when one of them knows some english, then we can talk better to them. Conclusion, we are going to be in the field in three weeks, and wont be able to talk to very many people. Hahaha! Should be entertaining to say the least :P
Thank you so much for your love and support! Im still doing ok. But only 2 more p-days until im out in the field! :/
We went to the temple earlier this morning, and we walked to it! about a twenty minute walk, fast paced. Every pus that was passing us was full, so we just walked. For the buses its 50 centimos (im not sure what it is in dollars) but its very cheap).
I got a jacket/coat today at a store! Im excited to be warm in it! Our teachers keep it cold. And I got more inca cola, and found sour cream and onion pringles. So I splurged just a little bit.... If people are wondering about bringing cash down or cards, I would suggest cash, at least for the first little while. There is a sister here whos mom wouldnt let her bring cash, and the card she has keeps getting denied, so she hasnt been able to buy anything, and her mom said it should work. So just a suggestion!
I love you all, have a good week!
