Dearest Darling People:
Salut!! There are a total of three sisters in my companionship and four elders in my district. There is another Tahitian group; they're awesome and there are two sisters and four elders in that group. We're always visiting each other; they're great.
Tuesday is P(Preparation)-Day. On this day I generally write letters, e-mails. We only get 30 minutes of computer time so my e-mails are limited. Keep all the letters coming family and friends and I will handwrite back a letter, old fashioned style. :-)
We went to San Franciso recently to take care of our visa applications for Tahiti. San Francisco was an awesome one-day affair. We went to the French Consulate first thing. Every once in a while when we were in the waiting room, a highly sophisticated French person would glide past without making eye contact, so cool. My interviewer was very French. My interview lasted a little longer than some others because according to some other people in my district I was being "chatted up" so hopefully that means no visa problems for me. We ate lunch at In-N-Out (delish) and then went to Ghiradelli Square for chocolate! We walked around a bit and visited Alcatraz! I placed a pass along card all by myself to this 20-something Asian American guy and it was very relaxed and friendly. We took lots of pictures.
Note to Blog: I may have overpacked because I've been here for 3 weeks and haven't repeated any outfits.
We have two teachers - Frere "C" and Soeur "B". They are very different but both are so awesome; we are so lucky to have them. Both of them roleplay as investigators (separately). I don't know if I told you this before but we taught one of them (Nella) for a week (and constantly theorized within our district about whether she was a real investigator or not) and then one day she came into our class and introduced herself as our 2nd teacher!! I was personally shell-shocked and my mind was so blown I could only sit there and smile. When she asked if I was okay I admitted to the class that I felt "like I just got punked".
I absolutely love the part of the day when I get the mail so keep em' coming. Please continue keeping me upudated on the goings on and I shall do the same. :-)
SO MUCH LOVE
Love Soeur Carter
