Hola Familia

Guatemala is the coolest place ever!  Its so green everywhere and I even saw the volcano as we landed. It was pretty funny when this old school bus came and picked us up at the airport. The city is huge!  We did drive past a McDonalds, Dominoes, and Burger King! The ccm is way cool. All the elders there are way nice. My companion is Elder Dickson, so that was pretty cool to find out. So far we have just been learning the rules of the ccm and we have been learning some spanish. I am actually picking it up pretty well.  Yo soy un misionario de la iglesia de jesús christo de los santos de los últimos días!

I have already eaten breakfast and lunch here. The food is the best! We had breakfast sandwiches with this sauce over it and for lunch we had pollo con arroz and the rice was delecious! I could definitely get used to it! I also ate this messed up fruit thing called a leecha. You'll have to look it up.  The only thing that has sucked so far, was the plane ride to Guatemala. It was only 4 hours and 20 minutes but it was so crowded. There was a ton of turbulance and everyone was freaking out! I enjoyed it and if you wanna know how I felt, you could watch the 2nd episode of lost where it shows the plane crash! Haha another funny thing was when we landed, all the Guatemalans clapped and cheered! I was thinking that its probably because most of their planes crash so they were happy to land haha jk!

But ya I am already loving it! So apparently every other week we go on a field trip, and yesterday some of the elders were telling me about their adventure to Walmart... haha my first fieldtrip is next tuesday at the flea market! I can't wait to go barter with the Guatemalans! Also I guess you can buy stuff through the fence at the ccm with native Guatemalans? I dont know how reliable that is haha.

Also its hilarious, there are guards everywhere! and these police men in trucks with their sirens on came cruising past us, and there were like 5 guys in the back of the truck packin ak 47s! You will have to tell josh all about that!

Well thats all thats happened to me so far! I love it! and I miss and love you guys, but I'm so excited and I know that I am suppossed to be here! My preperation day is on Tuesday so that will be when I email you next! and we have the same time right now so thats cool. Guatemala doesn't have daylight savings... well love you all!
