Do you got a shirt that you really love?

One that you feel so groovy in?

Well, I was all excited to get custom clothes made for me, when after checking back again and again at the modista (seamstress), she finally told me in a round about way that they weren't done and I should come back later. Yikes. Guess I'll have to try a different approach....

So next week is my Longfield Practice, which is a week in the campo (country) speaking and working at an existing volunteer's site. I'm pretty excited cause right after I get back, I find out my site assignment.

After my return I have a whirlwind of stuff going on in training. I've got multiple presentations to give (in Guarani) and all kinds of preparation and last minute training to cram in. I'm swamped. No more beautiful waterfalls for me. Boo.

Other than that, I am on my way to try out a 'real' pizza place i've heard about. Supposedly it has french fries too. I don't think you know how much you really miss any of these things when you can't get them. They have pizza here, but it's usually a premade crust, stewed tomato and onions, and slices of ham and cheese. Not to mention no such thing as french fries.
It's the little things, people. The little things. Wish me luck. I hope i don't end up ordering the pizza with the pig cheek on it. I'm not kidding on this one. I've seen it, smelt it, and ate it.

You'll always be my little pig cheek! Let me know when you want me to come get you. I have pizza and french fries.

` Pig cheek!? Good luck with all your important lagoonless work!

` BTW, Best. Car. Evar. Mine! I feel like such a rich bastard.

mmmm, pig cheek. Their idea of pizza sounds a little like Totino's. I'll look next time I'm at King Soopers and see if they have pig cheek.

love josh

Unbelievable. Simply unbelievable.
Sounds like right out of rural Missouri. Be careful. Are they making those clothes out of hemp? Is that why it's taking so long? Hey, eat a slice for me.
