I will start this letter again with another strange thing I ate....
Mojara... AKA fish. But this was every part of the fish. The fish was whole on our plate and we had to eat everything but the bones and the head. We ate the fins/tail and both of the eyes too. It was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, the eyes were nasty and you had to be careful in picking out the bones, because they hurt really bad if you missed any, they were like toothpicks. I could do it again though unlike the turtle eggs.
We made the brownies I got in my package this week, but since we do not have an oven we made brownie pancakes and made them in the microwave. They were really good!
We have 1 baptism for the 7th of November and possibly another for that day too. I am looking forward to that and it should be really cool.
One thing I noticed this last week and it really bothers me is that once the priests start to bless the sacrament they lock the chapel doors and do not let anyone leave or enter (to maintain the spirit). If you show up a little late, no sacrament for you. That does not seem very Christlike and for some reason really bothers me. Just wanted to rant a little.
Also read "The First Nativity" by Ron Brough and Kathy Jenkins and really loved it. It is a very short book but really awesome and recommend it to all!
Lastly... Ponderize: Moroni 7:45
Random pic's of neighborhood, church, and my apartment building.

This is Tuk tuk and is similar to a taxi but easier.
