Gwada'hy (Sunny)

So this week wasss.... Honestly pretty tough. We had a few days where everything jsut went absolutely terrible! Let me tell you about one day we had: Sooooo it started off all fine, we woke up, made breakfast (Pancakes) and got dressed. Had our studies and everything, and took off bright and early (10:30) We first had to go drop off a package at a postal office, which I THOUGHT I knew where it was. We ended up walking around for 2 and a half hours in 115 degree weather, literally in circles, asking people where this place was, when it ended up being about half a block from our apartment. We then headed out to our lunch appointment we had at 12:30, which we were going to be late to because we were too busy wondering around looking for that post office haha So this family that we were going to eat lunch with lives cleeeaaarrrrr out in the middle of no where, and it took us another hour to walk to her house, again in the blazing hot sun. We luckily made it to her house, but mçby the time we made it there. it was already like 2 in the afternoon, and that had already eaten. Sooooo we decided to made the long journey back to the main road to find a food stand to get something to eat. On our way back, clouds started forming, and started to rain. And boy did it rain! haha It rained so hard, that we got turned around and got lost, clear in the middle of no where. Not only that, but we forgot we had our cell phone with us, so that got wet too! haha It wouldn't even turn on, so we literally had no way to call a member to help us find out where we were. We ended up walking in the complete opposite direccion of the main road, and by the time we figured out where we were, it was about 4 oclock, still raining hard by the way hahaha We slowly made our way back to the main road, soaking wet ha And to make matters even worse, about halfway back to the road, I was so tired, and dragging my feet with every step. I slipped, and fell, and came up half covered in mud, and my comp LAUGHING histerically at me! hahahah Now all of this sounds a lot more funny to me than it was in that moment... hahaha I was STEAMED! I was so mad hahaha We FINALLY made it to the main road, adn found a restaurant, where we stopped and gourged ourselves on cold empanadas. hahaha Aaaaaand then took a bus back to our apartment, where we had to change out of our wet and dirty clothes, for a meeting. hahaha We literally didn't do a single productive thing that day! hahahaha Aaaaaand you. Basically the worst day of my mission right there. hahaha Tough week! But this week will be a ton better, I can feel it. Love it our here! It's tough, but it's a ton of fun at the same time. Love you guys! Thanks for the love and support. Keeps me going through days like that! hahaha 

Love you guys!
