Thank you for all of the prayers, calls and emails these last two weeks. God has been so good. My back is doing much better, and I have learned anew how to trust God in spite of the situation. I feel like I am back to normal (as normal as I get get). I am working hard at school and I feel like I am learning a ton.
1. Ordering fast food in a different language

1. So as many of you know, ordering at a fast food restaurant in that States can be an ordeal if it's busy. Now picture doing all of that in a different language. I have to say that it is always fun to see what I get because it's usually not what I attempted to order.
|I ended up with 3 slices of pizza.|
I attempted to order 1 slice of ham pizza and a drink, but I ended up with 3 slices.
I was trying to order a chicken sandwich. However, I ended up with a fried chicken breast and wing. (Like at KFC)
Italian Sit Down Restaurant-
A sit down restaurant is always much easier. Not only do you have a menu that you can point at, but the waitress is more focused on what you are saying and you have more time to practice what you are going to say, and time to listen to their questions clarifying what you ordered. I ordered a Penne Cheese Pasta that was absolutely delicious.

|View from my room at the hostel|
|We hiked up hill to this overlook|
|Then we hiked back down to the beach. What a beautiful view!|
|Monkey- we saw a lot of monkeys but it was difficult to |
take their pictures because they moved so fast
|Monkey swinging from tree to tree!|
|This monkey came running across the path right in front of us.|
I just missed taking a picture of a mother monkey with its
child on its back.
|This raccoon is not scared of people at all. They actually |
will take food out of your bag if you leave it unattended.
|Lizard on the path|
|After a long day hiking for about 4 hours, a nap in the hammock was |
definitely in order.
