I had a pretty quiet week - only one trip to the ER - one of the Sister Missionaries was treated for a dog bite on her arm. I now know where the 3 hospitals are located in Arecibo. It was a beautiful drive along the coast until I found the right place. The people of Puerto Rico are so kind and helpful - especially the Security Officers at the hospitals. Taught one of them what a 'guard shack' is :o) The sister is fine and was treated very professionally. I was starting to get cabin fever yesterday afternoon when one of the Senior Elders called to let me know that our Senior Missionary gang was planning to meet at a restaurant for dinner. We went to a great place called Crepe Maker - the food is similar to a tortilla wrap, but they use crepes instead - yum! Hard to eat a flour tortilla after that!
After dinner, I drove to the apartment of one of the sisters who works in the Employment Center. She was giving a perm/haircut to one of our Senior Sisters. It was fun to take time to visit.
I will be playing the piano for Sacrament Meeting in my ward for the month of March - familiar tunes/unfamiliar words. Have been studying Spanish 1-2 hours a day on my own - waiting for contact with a tutor. There is a great interactive language learning site - Duolingo.com - no cost to register and some great review activities for you/you kids who may be studying a language.
Bye for now..........
