Hello hows it going out there ? Well I am please to say that I have succesfully made it 2 whole weeks aboard the ship. So far things are great. I kinda like the job I am doing and really quite enjoy the time I get to spend with the people of the area !! I have done a few minisrty things in the past 2 weeks so that was quite exciting. !! I also found a place that had internet. Although it was a bus ride and 2 trains away from the ship. Ah well what can you do. Ok have fun !!

Ice cream sandwich literally. When we were at the parliment building a lady came and ask it we wanted some ice cream, well being a hot day sure why not. So she grabed a hot dog bun, put a scoop if icecream and a scoop of RICE and another scoop of icecream. closed it up and gave it to me. LOL Can't get enough rice around these parts.
