I am making awesome friends, i have unpacked a little bit, I did lose one of my bags (my purple one) but we know where it is and I will get it back soon. Luckily, I packed 50/50! lol! Anyway, the food was interesting for breakfast. Im holding out hope for a better lunch... lol! I miss you guys! I saw a bow today that made me think of Bethany! Its so pretty! Peru is strange... But the weather is nice! I am having so much fun! There are a TON of sisters! And I mean a TON! LOL! And a great deal of them are headed to Bolivia! Fun! Sorry about the typos! This keyboard is in spanish! Anyway, I am doing ok! Oh! My flu shot can be taken care of here.. And I think its free... And they said my Tdap could maybe be taken care of in Bolivia... So far, no sickness or anything. The MTC is awesome. At least the little bit that Ive seen of it! haha! I have messed up my name so many times! ha! But thats ok, because so has everyone else! Anyway, im in a room with a total of 6 sisters (thats including me). And they are all way cool! They have a ton of KFCs here! Weird huh...
