Okay, random... there is like a circus or something in town, cause we saw the trailer of animals again today. a few days ago, two purple trailers that are just open bars drove by. the first had 2 cows, 2 camels laying down, one mini horse and a donkey oh and a zebra. the second had 2 elephants! haha today I was right next to it, and the elephant had it´s trunk out the side, I could have touched it if I had reached out haha.... random. so I have lots of animal stories this week. last Monday while we were walking to the Internet we heard this wailing... We looked over into this Styrofoam cooler and there were two small puppies still with their eyes shut sitting there in the sun. we took them to a lady´s house nearby and gave them to her. later on the way to a cita, they were out by the road again... thanks a lot to the lady with a cruel heart... one was dead and the other I picked up and took to our dinner appointment. they took the poor thing and we tried to feed it. but it was way hard. the family said it died. at least we tried. there wasn´t much hope... AND a couple days later we heard more meowing and screaming in the bushes... my comp and I were like... por que padre!??? por que? so I climbed into the ditch and saw one dead nasty kitten and looking into the tall grass I saw this little black face of a kitten looking up at me. as I pressed down the grass it stumbled out to my hand. I set it on the road and it tried to stumble around to get closer to us. it was soaked from the rain- it crawled into my skirt as I squatted down to look at it. the poor thing... I picked it up to look at it. as it turned it´s head I saw a clean open hole on the side of it´s neck. taking a second look I saw that that clean hole was full of wriggling white maggots. nasty little poor thing... we couldn´t do anything for it... WE LEFT IT on the street! how terrible is that! I wanted to die from cruelty! seriously! It stared at us as we walked away and tried stumbling toward us. and It´s screams filled the air! you have no idea... soooo horrible.. and then, when we were leaving that area, we had to pass by the same place and I could hear from a block away the screams of the kitten again!!! oooooooooookkkkkkayyyyyyyy.... seriously, I plugged my ears and started humming to myself. it sucked.
okay, I´m done being a girly girl, telling stories of suffering dying animals...
this week was soooooo much walking. one day we walked 30 min with a lady that lived in the Elders area cause she seriously looked like she was going to pass out from dehydration or fatigue. so we carried her bags and she carried her baby. we didn´t realize how far she was going.... and once we got there, as we were suffering from sweat, heat, and hills, we just said chao and turned around and finished another 30 min. But in my mind we walked an hour just to see the view. it was freaking amazing! you could see the water and the green hills with red dirt roads and the people and their houses of sheets of metal. it is gorgeous. These people have no idea what life is like back in the states. I don´t know what they think, they see movies and stuff, but to live it and be there is completely different. I guess it´s the same for me in their world. it´s so different. and I don´t know what its like to live there. It´s really different, but still the same life and laughs.
okay... how dumb is this... my retainer broke this week... so I had to go to the ortho here in town... scary? I think so... I can´t speak Spanish and they´re going to do who knows what inside my mouth... but it was all good. 60 bucks for 3 chunks of glue on my teeth, but whatev, the mish will pay thou, so no worries, fam. Its a little sore this week though so I´m not sure if where he glued it is different than where it was or what, so it´s moving my teeth or what... but I´ll just hope for the best.
Okay, peoples, I haven´t written any letters here yet, well, sent them at least. but hopefully I will tomorrow. I also haven´t received anything yet. It all just depends on when our leaders get the mail.
