Mexico things i have experienced so far:
crying down the jet bridge and the man working told me it was going to be ok and that there was a photo of an animal on the tail of the airplane next to us.. like that is going to make me feel better?
I SAW YOU SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WATCHING ME TAKE OFF. That was so special.
mexican standard time.. our take off time was 9am, boarding at 8:20. I got on the plane at like 9:05. miraculously we made it on time.
I got through customs (tell Isaac to look at his example one in his packet. I was so confused) and come out to a wall of people holding signs up of names, none of which were mine.. walked around for 30 minutes, but then two men in shirts and ties with byu lanyards around their necks found me.
I hung out with them as we waited for the other missionaries to arrive (aka 3 hours) They didnt speak a lick of english so they just talked at me really fast and then I nodded and they laughed at me. cool guys.
I went to get a drink from my water bottle and it exploded all over me. Dumb airplane pressure systems.
The other missionaries arrived, we got on the bus, and I only thought we going to die like twice. They people are CRAZY drivers.
Every wall has graffiti.
Every building is neon colored.
I have my companion. Her name is sister Lindsay Rupp and she is adorable.
The keyboards here are way weird.
I guess there are a ton of people here that are going to McAllen.
Everything is great, dont worry about me. They say this is the safest place on earth and that it is 3xs bigger than Provo. My Pday is on Thursday, so maybe I will talk to you tomorrow!
