Now that the NFL lockout and Peruvian Independence Day are over I think that both lives of those in the US and Peru can come back to normal. Thanks to aforementioned Independence Day and a multi-zone conference not a lot went on this week so I'm just going to skip to the questions and if I think of anything more during that time I'll go for it.
Do the kids have vacations like the kids do here?
---Yes, in fact they are in vactions right now till the middle of August.
In your new area, do they have Primary?
---Yes they do and it is HUGE.
What do they do for YM/YW there?
---Basically joint activities every week as far as I can tell but that may be because so many people are vacationing.
Now that you are in a more populated area, are there any American restaurants?
---No, but there is an AWESOME pizza place in our sector.
I know you can't swim on p-day in the lake, but do you have any
opportunity to fish in the lake?
---Well, I would but then I found out the fish there are polluted and nasty and would kill you if you ate them.
What is the main food staple in the area?
---Potatoes and rice. And both in abundance.
Have you eaten anything that you could not identify, and if so, was it good?
---Other than chicken heart, no.
What is the main source of work in the area?
---Here in Puno, tourism.
Do you get a lot of tourists in this area?
---Not really, there are more in the area above us which includes the Plaza de Armas
Do you have any Canadian missionary in you mission? And if so from where?
---No, sadly we do not but about 5 missionaries without even hearing me speak or anything have thought that I was Canadian, and no I was not wearing hockey appearal at the time.
Do you have a Ward mission leader? And if so do get to go on splits with them?
---Yes and yes but not as much right now because everyone is taking vacations so it's hard to find people to go on splits with.
Well, that about covers it. Though I did remember something cool that I'll talk about next week because, well by then we'll have our appointment with this person. But till then stay safe and don't do anything I wouldn't do. Which gives you a good amount of room to work with.
