Mommy & All,
"Its easy to dream a dream, but its harder to live it."-Wale
This week was interesting. Up untilall we did was pack and get our stuff ready to go to Perito. morning we took and hauled all our stuff to the house in Perito and see how it was. The very first time we gotta see the inside of the house was when we moved in because the guy who owns it wouldn't give us the key till he had all his money. On the bus ride out there morning, the police stopped the bus like they normally do and checked everyone's ID's. Of course I was the only one on the bus who didn't have Argentine ID. So they stopped the bus for about 20 min asking me all these questions and I almost had to go to jail for a sec but they ended up letting me go after looking through all my stuff. So the next thing on my checklist is getting them to send me my ID card which they just barely finished but its in Comodoro.
So when we got to the house it was interesting. It wasn't as big as we'd hoped because we needed a place that had a big enough kitchen so we could do our church meetings there so we will see what happens with that. The bathroom experience here was a fun one. So the very first time we used the toilet it got clogged so the very first thing we bought for the house was a plunger. But every time after that the toilet got clogged so something was wrong. That was proved to usmorning when my comp went to go take the first shower. So the water from the toilet and shower run to the same spot and we could hear it go down but it made a funny sound. So a few minutes after my comp started his shower I heard a scream from the bathroom. Apparently while he was showering, EVERYTHING that we'd flushed down the toilet came up through the shower drain hahaha and the drain for this shower is about the size of a medium squared floor tile, so for the shower its big which makes that experience even worse but funnier haha. Anyways that's when we knew it wasn't actually the toilet, but everything under the floor that was clogged up and never got cleaned out. So Hermano Naiman came over yesterday with a hook to see what he could find. He ended up fishing out half a rug that someone had flushed down the toilet and about enough hair to make a basketball. So after clearing that little blockage, our bathroom was at least functioning up till this morning so I'm not sure what we are going to do. We are still waiting on a fridge, washing machine, and microwave so hopefully that will get here sometime this week.
