So this week is crazy-go-nutz picture week!
After last weeks email sesh, we went to a little town called Sausal and climbed a mountain
It was weird to get exercise and I got to the top really tired and thirsty
E Leavitt and I like to match on Pdays (we are adorable).
When we got to the bottom we found a log over a river and decided to take some awkward family pictures as a zone
This awk log pic goes out to Kerrie Heckel
When I got my mission call, the first thing that my friends and I did was Google "Peru" and one of the first things that we found is that people eat Guinea Pigs. When I got home from preaching Tuesday, Hna. Lijia (she feeds me) had a burlap sack in her hand full of three live guinea pigs
We played with them for a little
And then she told us to take them to her mothers house show she could kill and skin them for us.
It was extremely gruesome.
She ripped all of the fur off by hand
Then our pensionista cooked them up and gave us each a half of a cuy with papas and arroz de trigo. Each guinea pig here costs 30 soles ($12ish) because guinea pig is a delicacy. I'm not going to lie, it was delicious (sorry anyone who has ever had a pet guinea pig)
I am having a great time in Cartavio. I have a hard time believing that there could be any better area in the mission. I'm super happy here and fitting right in.
