These are pictures of me on the plane, the view from my window on the plane which I drove the flight attendent crazy cause I wouldn't keep my blind closed. Then there are pictures of my companion in pink, Hermana Avalose from Peru. This was her first time thru the temple and I got to be her escort as much as I could help in spanish. The others are my roommates Hermana Bringhurst from Alaska, and Hermana Nuñez from Columbia. The picture of food is our Peru Independence Day Fiesta! The food was good but a lot - I couldn't finish it all. There are pictures from the airport when we landed in Peru. The picture of the family is one of my teachers and his family, not the one that had a seizure. This teacher is so awesome he keeps encouraging me to trust in myself with my Spanish and trust in the Lord; he has great faith. The other teacher is really good, too. There is also a picture of the tallest and the shortest people here; it was comical. And the one picture is of Hermana Corrasca and I. She speaks English real well and wants to learn more so she won't let me speak Spanish to her. She is from Peru I think . I think that is it. I need to make a better list of everything I want to say to you guys as the week goes cause in a few hours I'll think of someting else to say. Oh I got to play soccer on that awesome field. It was fun; it was just all the Hermanas. We also got to teach some of the Peruvians volleyball. On Mondays we have a personal trainer and he is a fútbol coach for some of the national teams and member of the church. He works us pretty hard - wow I'm so sore from yesterday. Ok, well, I've extended my use longer than I was supposed to, so I´ll talk to you all again next week.
