I also got to go on an exchange this week. I got sent over to the West green area just for a day. And holy smokes. It was fancy compared to where I am! My first visit was with a member in her luxurious mansion. She served us smoothies and assorted berries on fine china. I felt so out of place! It was super fun to be in a different area for a little bit but I was glad to get back to the ghetto! My area is so much fun! I love it so much!
So let me tell you about a few strange things that happened this week.. Well first of all.. You will never guess what I got to eat.. I got to eat some blood sausage.. What is blood sausage you ask? Well let me tell you. Pretty much it is just blood and nerve bundles that they put in a pot and cook until it is super thick. Then they shape it like a sausage and you eat it. It is just a big juicy scab. Bleh. It actually didn't taste that bad until they told me what it was. Thankfully, after being here for 4 weeks, my stomach can handle anything so I was able to eat it!
I also got a foot massage yesterday.. Probably one of the strangest things that has ever happened to me. We were at a menos activos for dinner yesterday! She is this old Mexican lady and is as sweet as can be! Anyway she started telling us all about reflexology and how when you massage your hands and feet that it helps relax other parts of your body. I was asking her questions about it and she told me to give her my foot. I didn't know if I understood her correctly so I just kinda sat there. So she grabbed my foot and put it right on her lap. Then she took of my shoe and proceeded to massage my feet. Hermana Marlowe couldn't stop laughing because it was so strange! I didn't know what to do because she was speaking spanish like 90mph.. It was so funny! I wish you guys could all come meet the people I visit with! They are all hilarious!
I hope all is well with all y'all! Have a great week and remember who you are and what you stand for! I love you guys!
