This week was a bunch of fun. First off, coming all the way out to Villavicencio on a bus. Freaking 4 hour bus ride all by myself, haha. I survived though. I got here and have been hanging out with my man Elder Nielsen from Parma, Idaho since then. It's been really cool. It was weird teaching with him again. We just already knew how to work together and how to teach together so it didn't take us long before we were back in the old routine again, haha.
So a little about Villavo (that's what they call it for short and they pronounce it like Villao). It's like a giant city in the middle of the dang jungle. They call it the "llanos" which I'm pretty sure means plains because its just a ton of flat lands, but a big part of my area is mountainous which is pretty rad. We get some good exercise climbing the mountains on foot. Some of the typical food here is "Carne a la llanera" which is a food I think I might have told you guys about a while back. It's meat they put on a think they call the "llanera" and they let it rotate over a fire for a while. It's like their own smoked meat. Real good though. Dad would like it. The music is pretty much normal Colombian stuff, but there is a style called LLANO that is pretty awful. It's just really fast and made for drinking, haha. The heat is a ton of fun to try and survive. Today as a zone we went to a place called Cosechas, which is like Jamba Juice down here. Its a dang missionary's best friend in hot lands. It's the best way to escape the heat for a bit. Today we also went to the zoo as a district (and some other elders from the zone) which was a grat tim [Tanner lingo for "great time"]. We just kinda walked around and saw some fun animals. Nothing too crazy, except for the DOPE FREAKING FILTHY JOHNS PICS WE TOOK [Filthy Johns are the Dollar Store kid's sunglasses that Tanner loves]. Haha, the zone thought it was pretty funny, so everyone walked outta there with a good ol' filthy johns pic.
Other than that we've just been working like crazy. I'm still getting used to the area and the people so I don't have a ton to say about the work. But I'll tell you guys when we have more to talk abouty :) Love you all! See ya.
