This week I'm going to bring my camera everywhere I go, so that i can take fotos of everything! :) because we are having transfers in one week and I suspect that my time in San Benito is coming to an end :(
Okay now for the big news.... drum role please!!!!!!!!!
TODAY WE WENT TO..................TIKAL!!!!!!!!!!!! :D yeah thats right, you read that correctly, this past month, our zone completed our goals, so the Mission President gave us permission to go to Tikal (the Mayan ruins) today! It was super cool, and I was finally able to put on my tikal shirt that i bought in the CCM haha The only bad part, was that we were rushed through the whole trip, so we didn't even get to see everything nor soak it all in, that was the sucky part. (I'm just like you mom, where I prefer going on my own on my own time, to do my own thing :) hahah ) Oh well, I got to see the main parts, and take enough pictures (I will send them next week because I ran out of time) You could really feel something special there, in the miniscule time that I had, I thought about the movie The Testaments, and tried to picture the people there and when Christ came, it touched my heart, and that was special for me, but I wanted more time to reflect. It would have been cool to bring my scriptures and read 3 nephi 11 the coming of Christ to the Americas. One day I will return (better when I can go with my mommy :) )
Okay a cultural thing or courtesy thing i have noticed here is that when people are sitted in like a circle or group, if one gets up to walk to a different room, they dont cut through the circle or in front of the people talking, they walk all the way around and say permiso, i always thought about that, i thought why dont they just cut through its a lot faster, but its to be polite to the people who are chatting i guess. Lets see what else happens here..... I cant really think right now, but i will think more about it this week and tell you next week :)
So thats the news for now, more to come next time, so stay tuned :)
love you guys bunches!!!
