Well, last week Kelly didn't email me, and now at the moment it looks like you have forsaken me! Having too much fun in SD without me I see! haha. but, since I have no questions to answer or anything, I can get to the good stuff and tell you all about my week here as a missionary in Cape Town South Africa! man, that just never gets old saying. and as a matter of fact today marks 16 months of saying that! click click click! snap your fingers! haha
This week was transfer week! Those are always hectic. Monday we went to that place to buy you guys some stuff, but come to find out that it was a public holiday, and that there was a massive festival going on downtown, where those nice shops were. I guess you could compare it to Marti Gras in New Orleans, minus all the inappropriate stuff that goes on there. This festival was awesome, and the best part was that we didnt plan to be there! It basically was a parade, and all the people dressed up very flamboyantly and danced and sang and partied in the streets of Cape Town! There was a lot of people there. the parking was horrible, but we finally found a spot and walked far to get to the shops, only to see/discover that there were none that day! They are just like portable stands that people put up, and everyone knows about it so they are always up, but that day there were none. So basically we went through all that working for nothing! haha oh well. We still gotta see that cool parade. Man, a LOT of people in Cape Town smoke. Its disgusting. We shoulda had some Word of Wisdom pamphlets to pass out huh?!
That was fun. but we finally found out why Elder Nzuki and a few other missionaries were here...they are training brand new missionaries! I guess they're doing a new training program, and so they all met in Cape Town with their greenies and then flew together to their areas. On Tuesday him and another missionary climbed table mountain in the morning. It was like their only chance they were going to get because both of them are going home pretty soon. Elder Giles and I had the lucky chance to go pick them up from the base of the mountain. We got there a few minutes early and just looked out over the beautiful view, even though it wasnt as good as it was from the top.
