Made it to the Argentina MTC

We made it here okay!!! Baggage and everything. My companion during my flights was Elder Barlow. He`s a pretty cool kid! He lived in American Fork. He didn`t play sports but he is a break dancer! We met another Elder in Fort Worth. His name is Elder Lopez! He`s from Spokane, Washington and speaks fluent Spanish. Both of his parents are from Mexico. It was nice having him around because he could talk to everyone. We also met a guy at the Fort Worth airport named Jonathon. He was born in Boliva and grew up in Brazil and Argentina. He kind of took us under his wing. He took care of us and made sure no one came and robbed us. The flight was good though! The first flight was pretty short so Elder Barlow and I just read the missionary handbook. The second flight was 10 hours long and they served us dinner and breakfast. The plane was huge! There was two different isles going down the plane with seven seats in each row. For dinner we had pasta and breakfast we had a croissant and some yogurt. I got a few hours of sleep but for the most part I read my scriptures and wrote letters. I will send those out as soon as possible. Elder Lopez`s bags never got here but the airport said they should be here tommorrow. Mine got here fine! But Argentina is so cool. The temperature is amazing. I thought it would be as humid as Missouri but it`s not even close. The weather is perfect here!!! But it`s so different here, and not just the language. The MTC only has like 30 people total and the drivers here are nuts. It`s like all Lysjes! Haha even the keyboards are different! But I love you so much and I should write every Wednesday from now on! I will try and send my letters as soon as possible! Love you and miss you!
