Way exciting weekly email first week of may!

This is not actually going to be as exciting as the subject line would indicate because even though we came to a different cyber-cafe today I didn't bring my camera so there will once again be no pictures.

So, in Argentina, 1st of may is a biggggg holiday. Who knew? It's the "day of the worker". Aw well, we ended up working anyways. I suppose we'll have to wait for "the day of the ecclesiastical minister". Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if they had a day for that- fun fact, there are more than 270 national holidays in the calender year in the republic of Argentina. Wow! (Lots fall on the same day or are not celebrated by stopping work in any way- otherwise they would spend more days in festivals than working- and that's not about to happen)

Well, we have started to work in "la Favorita" for real. We've got a pretty good grasp of the area and have met a few old and new investigators. Sadly, we have a change of companions tomorrow and I'll be out of the area- which is lame, because we have a fixed lesson with a whole family of investigators. We actually spend the whole day in the area, from morning till night, without returning ever to the apartment, because we live so far away-40 minutes by bus. that means that we normally have to find some sort of service or something to do for members during the dead three hours after lunch (la siesta) when almost everyone is sleeping. It's really exhausting to be on your feet for that long. I don't think I've ever gotten to sleep faster in the mission.

Well, I hope that all of you can have a good week.
