After foodshopping and a brief tour of the school and the city I ventured off to take a walk around town. Let me tell you, the weather was PERFECT. It was about 75 degrees, with a breeze and a hot, penetrating sun that tinted my skin pink due to the high altitude. I walked to a little tienda where I purchased a large box of Peach juice for sesenticinco (75) cents and then sat on the rooftop patio of our apartment overlooking the whole city and drank a bit of it. After a nap and some skyping encounters I heard loud, hillsong-esque worship music coming from a couple blocks away. I wandered up the street and found a large church with a lively worship band. I stood in the back as the only white person in the whole large room and worshipped with them a bit. I was thankful to find a church so close to home!
When I got back Donna had her two friends over for dinner and we ate a great, homey american meal complete with mashed potatoes and apple pie and talked about their lives living all around the world in Columbia, the Phillipines, China, Kuwait.
Don't worry after today I definetely won't have the time or energy to be writing such elaborate play-by-play blog updates. Tomorrow is my first day of school! I'm excited to meet my kiddos! The school is literally 2 blocks up the street, but it is up a very steep road. Pray that I don't pass out from exhaustion hiking up that hill, the altitude makes EVERYTHING more challenging. Ok good night, it is bedtime for me soon! Love and miss you all.

My school is literally a 1 block walk from here and I'm going to see it tomorrow! I'm too tired to write much more than this. But I wanted to let everyone know that I'm here, my luggage is here and todo es bueno! Ok bedtime. Buenos noches!
love you all!
