The One With Prayers
So some fun and random things about the mission. Well first, Hermana Carballo, one of my roommates calls me Marilyn Monroe so now all the latinas call me Marilyn. It pretty funny and this week Hermana Carballo had her 25 birthday so for a present I came out and sang her happy birthday like Marilyn Monroe. It was pretty funny! Also the children in Chile either love me or hate me. They either love my hair or they don't and are kind of scared of a rubia. Usually the little girls love me and they all call me a princess. I think they call me Elsa, but not really sure. Every time I see a little girl in the street they wave to me and say ¡Hola Princesa! It is so cute!
These are all the Hermanas in my mission! I know so tiny!
So also this week I was feeling really awesome in my Spanish. Everyone I meet tells me how impressed they are with my Spanish and ask if I live in a latin country because my accent isn't gringa. They all think I am Colombian because my comp is but also because Colombians are very light and can have blonde hair. When I tell them I am from EE.UU and only have 3 months in the mission, they are shocked. it is a good shock and helps me feel better. So because I talk only in Spanish, when i do get the chance to talk in English, my words are mixed up and sometimes I totally forget a word in English. It takes me a bit to get back into English but I can so easily change back to Spanish. It is weird! So I am loving Chile so much and the people. I love working hard and just helping people. The one thing I missed soo much this week was Cafe Rio (sorry family). No but honestly I was craving it this week and obviously couldn't have it, LOL.
