Well, it has been yet a normal, amazing week here in Mexico! We are actually finishing up the cycle and have changes tomorrow. Luckily, Elder Wolford and I will still be together for another 6 weeks! ¡Wooo, muchas cosas (look it up)! I wasn't really stressed or nervous for changes because I really didn't feel we were getting changes. However, somehow it is still a huge relief. Plus, Wolfy gets this the priviledge of being with me for another month and a half. Lucky little Lobito.
So, I am sitting here in a internet cafe trying to think of interesting things to say and share with all you beautiful people. Of course when one thinks too hard one's brain gets tired then says it's hungry. So now I'm thinking of food and am reminded of the interesting things I've eaten this week. I think one of the most interesting things I've eaten this week has been Zapote. Zapote is one of the many types of fruit here in Mexico that I never knew existed before. There are several different kinds. This week, we tried zapote amarillo. It tasted very good but had a weird, chalky, pumpkin-y texture. Actually, it kind of looked like a cooked pumpkin. It also has these giant nuts in the middle that look a little like buckeyes. Weird, but cool. The weirdest type of zapote is zapote negro. Basically, it looks like a green tomato but it is literally black on the inside. It does not look appetizing whatsoever. However, they normally mash it up and mix it will orange juice and sugar which creates a pretty delicious dessert. Zapote is now added to the list of weird, exotic fruits and vegetables.
Another ''interesting'' thing that happened this week was that I was blessed enough to get hit with a cold. It may have been because I took a cold shower in the cold morning after freezing outside on the way home from the gym (we ran out of gas Sunday). It made the week a bit more interesting for sure but luckily didn't last too long. I was told by everyone in our weekly meeting with the ward missionary leader that I looked like death. Always good to have good emotional support in moments of sickness.
The last interesting/AMAZING thing is that we were just told by Pres. Stutz that President Russell M Nelson will be visiting our mission in February! I am beyond excited for the visit of an apostle of the Lord right here in Mexico!
Well, I somehow managed to put all three of my brain cells together and squeeze out a few somewhat interesting things from my week. I love you all and hopé you have an awesome week!
