On Wednesday, we went downtown in order to make it to a lunch appointment at a member's house, and on the way back we ran into this super rad candy store! There were aisles on aisles of tons of Mexican candy, more than I've ever seen in my entire life. We even found this 10lb bag of Cheetos, haha. I'll send you guys a picture of this place, it was INSANE!!
Juan, our baptism right now, has these stairs that we have to walk up to get to his house right, and it is the absolutely longest set of stairs I've ever laid my eyes on. Like, from the top, we can barely even see the street that we came from. We counted last time and it was 105 stairs. My legs are jello every time we get done walking up that thing haha. You can say it sucks.
Oh, on another note, I got to try my first dish of menudo (cow stomach soup) yesterday and holy cow it was sooooo gross. It tasted like super bland pork with a texture of cooked squid tentacles, do yourself a favor and don't ever eat that in your life if you get the chance. The other Gringo here and I that ate that were both sick the whole night after that in the stomach as well, but we feel better now.
Well, that about sums up my week for me! I've been doing great, it's starting to cool down a bit now and the cold showers are starting to feel worse and worse every day haha. Have an awesome week guys! Love you.
Love, Elder Thayne
