Thanks for the emails and all of the news.
Some pics of the part of our area where we live (all those houses below where the pic is taken is named el queso or the cheese).
As for the week, it was fun. It`s always fun your first week in a new area because it`s all just kind of a new experience. Puerta Grande reminds me a lot of Chamapa. Even though Chamapa isn’t in DF technically, they are very similar. Hills and hills of ugly grey concrete houses--People everywhere!!
As you can see from the map, we are a pretty close to Palmas (where the mission office is) and Downtown Mexico City. It`s fun being in DF.
We worked SUPER hard this week and it was a blast. Taught 30 lessons, had a baptism, 3 confirmations, 10 new investigators and 200 contacts. We were running everywhere and it was a lot of fun. We travel using the subway a lot too which is a change.
Today, P-day, was really fun too. We went down to this huge market in the city and there are TONS of cool handmade Mexican stuff...bought the family wrestling masks, one for everyone. [Gosh, can’t tell you how excited I am for that!!!] I`m probably gonna buy a ton of stuff there before I leave....handmade chess and backgammon sets with Aztec/Mayan designs, toys, knit sweaters and ponchos, knickknacks, etc. It was great. I feel like Grandma Nancy would have LOVED it.
We also went and got some Carls Jr. I haven’t had it in 15 months and never did a legit milkshake, crisscut fries and a double western burger taste so good.
Well I`m out of time, spent a lot of the time sending the pics....hope you have a good week, love you and miss you all
And this is my Joy
Also...a tree RIGHT in the middle of the road, which I thought was hilarious.
