Hey everyone! How's it going? Time again for a weekly news bulletin. Can you believe it's been a month already that I've been in Paraguay? What the....it definitely doesn't feel like it. As of Wednesday, I'll have 3 months of my mission under my belt. Crazyyyyyy.
Anywho, I get to call home this month! Wahoo! Christmas day we get to talk for 30 or 40 minutes, I'm super stoked for that. I don't know if you have to call me, or if I call you, or how it works. I'll find out and be sure to let you know before-hand so we can have something set for sure.
Ok, so every month we take out our 750,000 Guaranies for money here. Today is technically still November, but we got to take it out today. Guess how much money I had left over from last month? 5,000 Gs, which is about a dollar in America hahah. But it's alright, because I shouldn't ever be that low again. For one, I only got to take out 600,000 the first month (who knows why) so I was already short. And also, Elder Ganga ran out of money this month about the beginning of last week (he had to buy stuff for our apartment), so I was paying for all the bus rides instead of splitting them with him. Ended up being an extra expense of about 35,000 Gs. So no need to worry about my money situation, all is well.
If you didn't guess already, I'm about as dark as a Paraguayan now from the sun lol. Well, kinda. My arms below my sleeves and my face are dark. But without a shirt, I'm still white as a ghost hahah. I took a picture of the difference, it's amazing. I'll be sure to send it when I get my camera cord.
