So this is Mexico
So it turns out the inhabitants of Mexico arent as short as I thought they were. Still, Ive gotten many looks that imply Im a very strange, white, tall, American woman. I will apologize now for the strange punctuation. The keyboards down here are slightly different and I have yet to figure out where all the apostrophies and quotations marks are. Also, we are only given an hour for emails on P Day so I wont be able to write much. It drives me mad becasue there is so much I want to say to so many people but I dont have the time to write them all. One of the many sacrifices of mission work I suppose.
So for those who are curious to know a little bit about Mexico, here are a few things Ive noticed.
*EVERYONE owns dogs. Mean little things that never stop barking. Anytime you walk by the front of a house brace yourself for a chorus of annoying yelps.
*Watch where you step. Because of the grand amount of perros, there is doggie doodoo everywhere. Walking on a sidewalk is like my own strange Labyrinth, made from perro unmentionables.
*When inquiring where someone lives, don't bother asking for street names. Just ask them what color the house is.
Next week I hope to write more but this will have to be it for today. I literally have no time left. Keep me in your prayers!
