Where in the World are We?

Happy Fourth of July!

We're still in full days of training, but we had a great Fourth of July celebration event on Sunday at the US Ambassador's house. What a day! We got some barbequed chicken and a delicious american flag cake! The ambassador and his wife were amazing hosts and were so friendly and welcomed us warmly to their home and to Belize.

We also got to spend time at the pool and that was a nice relaxing break from the busy schedule of training.

We find out our community based training sites tomorrow, so I am sure there are a lot of anxious trainees tonight, at least I know we will be just waiting for that decision and to find out what language we'll learn and what part of the country we'll move to next. The past two days were nice since we got to Armenia earlier than we had been and were able to walk through the village and see more of the area and just have some down time.

Our mom has been making us cake more often, so it's good to get some walking in too! She is very good to us with trying to be sure we have enough to eat and that we like it. We haven't had too many exotic meals, tortillas are a staple at home. We both love tortillas, so it's dangerous to have so many! We had an interesting breakfast the other day - it was rice and milk, it was warm and it tasted somewhat like oatmeal with a lot of sugar - Ginnie liked it, since it was close to a breakfast-y thing.

Anyway, not much new and exciting to share today!
