About the letters. . . Make sure you save them until everyone gets there! [Craig is referring to some Christmas letters that he mailed to us.] I’m glad they made it on time. It’d be best until you all waited until around Christmas time to open them. They aren’t super cool, but I hope the family likes them! I was super worried about them not getting there on time, so I didn’t make separate letters for Ash and Mak, so I feel kind of bad now that they made it with lots of time to spare.
This week was really not super exciting. I got a little bit sick, which was a bummer. We almost went to visit Serge’s uncle, but there was a strike on Friday, and there were no buses. It also turns out that to go visit him, it will be a three and a half hour chunk of time gone. He literally lives right inside the borders of our area in a little town called San Pancrazio. It’s also impossible to visit him in the evenings because the buses stop after 6 or 7ish, and the train station is closed down there. Grrrr… Italy is a tough place for missionary work logistically.
[I asked Craig about his friend Ben Barrow because I haven’t seen any pictures or heard anything about him lately.] Ben just left Syracuse and got transferred to Olbia, on Sardegna. That should be fun for him!! 🙂 I don’t know many other missions where missionaries have to use planes, ferries, buses, and trains when they get transferred. Haha. We have complex travel plans.
[I sent Craig pictures of a vacation rental in Dana Point, California that we just booked for next August.] That looks like an AWESOME vacation spot!! I’m really excited about it. I think it looks amazing!
The pictures this week were of one of the streets here in Brindisi and Brindisi’s football team. The Brindisi Bucks. Haha. They did a little parade for them. It was pretty funny. They kind of look like they imitated the Colts.
As far as the Skype goes, yes, I was planning on the 26th at 8 AM. And of course Joey is invited!
Today we’re going to a different mall for P-day. I want to buy myself a nice Italian suit right after Christmas. I found a really good one that could be a super good price if it goes on sale. I’m also keeping my eyes open for lots of other things.
That’s about it for this week! Have an awesome week!! I can’t wait for Skype. I’ll have my same account and everything. I might send you a confirmation e-mail next Tuesday or something. I have zone conference next Monday, so probably don’t expect an e-mail. It should be all good. Ciao!
These first several pictures were just taken around town in Brindisi.
These last three pictures were taken during the parade of the Brindisi Bucks!
