The food really has been good so far (except for this one thing: it was just a cup of warm cream and corn an a single tortilla chip; that was weird and I ate all of it) there's just usually way too much, and you always have accept and then eat all of it. Last night we passed three members houses on the way back home and all of them gave us lots of food.
I'm going to go ahead and send this and then attach more pictures to the next one.
the east and a few blocks away from the train tracks. Our house is two blocks south of the chapel. And yep, we're surrounded by caña. Sugar cane. Apparently Coca-Cola owns the all of the surrounding fields.
The fields are really cool. We were teaching a lesson out in the coloñia of La Treinta (which is the somewhat separated portion out north of the main portion of Costa Rica) and ash started falling with the rain. Apparently they were burning a field, but I just figured the world was ending. It's nice being in such a small place. We work in half the city and the other copmanionship works in the other half. It seems much safer than my time in Culiacán. If you just say "buenas noches," they can't mug you anymore. It would just be weird.
We're trying to focus our efforts on finding people through the members referrals more than just contacting door to door. We are seeing lots of success from this method. Apparently transfers are in two weeks, so it's possible that I or Elder Davis will leave really soon.
As for writing me... We answer e-mails at a cyber and we have half an hour, so it's hard to read everyone's when I have a lot, but it's really nice to have a couple notes to respond to. I can print out e-mails here and read them later, though. So e-mail is probably the best way to contact me if anyone wants to do so.
