Week 17


And that ends week 17 on my mission here in Perú.

I'm going to start off talking about last P-day because I think it beats the one before, although there were no bee attacks :).

So last P-day, we, (including my companion and I and our district leaders) went to the beach which, is not even a half hour from my area. When we got there, we saw some thing close to the water. When we walked down to it, we found out that it was a sea lion (I think) and it was still alive!
Sick sea lion
We saw that it was in a great amount of pain, so we called the local authority, but they didn't really do anything because I guess it's a regular occurence, and they don't have sea life sanctuaries like we would in the states.

Well after that, we went to go what we came to do. We had heard about this small rock hill that was fun to climb so we went over to do that.
Cool climbing rock that became an island at high tide
When we got there, we found out that at the hour we were there, it was surrounded by water, and it is a mission rule that we are not allowed to go in water. So we had to abandon that and decided to climb a big mountain right next to it.

It was really big and had some steep and unsafe inclines, but it was still a lot of fun, and we practically ran up it. When we got up, it was extremely windy and really cool.
Climbed taller mountain instead. You can see the small rock we were going to climb way down below.
And the mountain that we had planned to climb up is the small hill off on the left of the picture was tiny compared to what we climbed.

It was a really great P-day for all of us.

Let's see, other than that, there was a relief society activity on Friday where each of the wards and branches had to prepare a song to sing having to do with the creation. We had a composer come in who was friends with our branch president and write us a song for us to sing. I got to play the keyboard part which was the chords in the backround that you can do on keyboards along with some improvisation harmonies. We were the only ward that had live music and it was a lot of fun for everyone.

Well that will do it for this week, and now is time to spend the last P-day with my companion. Talk back next week!
