Oh, and there is an 'under the table' O.K. that I can call you when I'm at the Airport! We leave the MTC at 8:00 a.m. so, like, at 10:00 am, I can probably make the call. Just some info you may want to know!
I did take an inventory and made a list of the things I need before I leave... In a week and 2 days! Entonces:
- 2 more pairs of black socks
- SD card back. Sorry about not giving any info on those pics btw...
- Several sticks of old spice deo for the BO.. After hours/Swagger/and Komodo. However many you are willing to send me please :)
- A big bottle of multivitamins... Grandma wanted me to take one everyday when I lived with her.. I think she's right.
- Yes, the iPod Shuffle please :) Some songs I definitely want are "The Lord is My Sheperd" "Consider the Lilies" other classical, Bach and Mozart especially. And there's a motab album that I would really like-- It's the one that has "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" on the cover and also American folk hymns, I think. Some songs on that album are "The Battle of Jericho", "Come Thou Fount", and "Saints Bound for Heaven". The whole album is fantastic. I've had the opprotunity to listen to it while I do Spanish on the computer.
- Tide to Go...
Everything else I think I am good on, even though seems like my last chance to ask for anything. We were told to only send packages through Fed Ex, UPS, etc, those type of carriers. Private carriers. It's safer.
We met with the Argentine consul on Tuesday to sign for our visas. He flew up from LA instead of us having to fly down to him. He was really cool. He sounded like a Spanish Italian. I'm so excited to learn that kind of Spanish... Castillano.. :) He told us a few things about the people there. He said they are really friendly, and when I say friendly, I mean they'll get up in your face when they talk to you. And they do a lot of cheek kissing apparently.. haha. And when you walk down the street, everybody is looking at you because they're curious. He said also that we will get a lot of BS from his people... hahaha. He was so funny, he didn't know if he was allowed to use that acronym or not haha. So there is my really vague description, and what I know of Argentinos at the moment...
I don't have my mission address with my at this exact moment so I'm going to sent you a letter with the address after I'm done here...
