Our pension is a separate house in Diego de Almagro and there is just us working here. We are indeed doing all of our own cooking and cleaning here. I am not really developing my cooking abilities because there is not much to work with here. I did make a cheese cream sauce for pasta though which was really good and something that was more like what I would have eaten at home. That being said, I have to get more creative because I have been eating pasta everyday since I got here. That is mostly because I am lazy about cooking, I did experiment with roux´s this week.
I tested those shoes and they are fantastic.
The branch here is super super super small - this week we had 13 people in church (I presided and conducted in Sacrament meeting). However, there are 2 or 3 good families to work with.
We are going to have a conference on Thursday of this week and I am almost positive that I will be recieving the parcels that day.
This zone in the mission is really weird because it is made of 4 cities that are:
Chañaral - main city, 4 missionaries
Diego de Almagro - 1 hour away, my sector, 2 missionaries
El Salvador - 2 hours away, 2 missionaries
Tal Tal - 2 hours away, 2 missionaries
The interesting thing is that we get together every week for a solid day and a half and the zone gets really close because of it, so that is really cool. We're the zone farthest apart, but with the tightest relationships. We are also a zone of 10 where most zones are 16 or 18 missionaries.
I'm sorry but I really don't know what else to write. You need to ask more questions because I feel like I am repeating myself.
