Hola friends and family.
Another week here in Honduras. Did I mention it is the last week of this transfer? Nuts. It has been a pretty good week. Lots of challenges but one becomes accustomed to those here in the mission. We found a bat in our back porch one morning. At first we didn`t know what it was... it had the tail of a rat, the body of a frog, and the face of a dog... what?? And when we were half asleep bright and early we were so confused! but then it spread it`s wings and we were like okay it`s a bat! then we helped it find a tree so it could sleep... haha
Last week mom asked me what I miss about America.... So I thought of a few things and mainly I miss CARPET (there are absolutely no houses with carpet here!), Ovens (how I would love to cook with an oven), snow (because I`m sweating), a washing machine, my hair, feeling clean, not being called fat, drinking water or cooking with water straight from the tap, a blender, my car, and pretty much that`s what I could think of. Things I will miss about Honduras when I leave: homemade TORITILLAS!!! (of flour and corn), being squished on a bus with a million other people, having people sell things on the buses (like fruit and water and belts and wallets, and antibiotics and candy... haha), being able to buy a banana from someone selling them in the street by hanging out the window of the bus when it is stopped to exchange money and product (it`s actually quite comical), all the fruit, palm trees, GREEN lushness, super friendly people, pulperias, pilas, bucket showers, platenos and green bananas, and much much more... I sure will miss this place! There´s just nothing like it.
Sure love you all! I´ll let you know next week if I`m staying or going... sure hope I`m staying with hermana O one more transfer. We really work well together and I just love this place with all my heart. But Que serà, serà! whatever will be will be!
Until Next Week,
Picture: the water line is always broken, but today it gave us a pretty site :)
