General Conference and earthquakes

General Conference was AWESOME!! It's literally like candy for missionaries. Haha so if you want to get just a little bit of an idea of the Spanish I have to listen to, compare the speed of the Spanish of the two Spanish talks. Elder Zeballos is from Chile and his Spanish was notably faster than Elder Pino´s. Now take that speed of Spanish, speed it up more and take away the diction and enunciation then cut off the endings of about half of the words and add a lot of sayings and words that don't exist in Spanish (only in Chile). Once you've done that you will have a bit of an idea of what I get to listen to every day - and I love it!

Besides General Conference nothing much happened. A few temblores no más. Oh, a temblor is a weak earthquake. A Terremoto is a strong earthquake. In Chile a terremoto is 8.0 and higher and everything else is weak. Haha in the rest of the world a terremoto is everything stronger than a 6.0. Ya, Chile gets a lot of temblores. Now when it happens at night I usually sleep through them and don't even realize that we had one.

So ya, That's it for the week. Love you all. Don't die, that would be unfortunate ;)
