Another Sunday

Well it's another lazy Sunday here in Bolivia. It's kind of scary that these blog posts are getting harder and harder to write. I feel like it was just an ordinary week. It's strange that this life is becoming my life and no longer a surreal event. Which that in itself is quite the surreal event. Strange.

Last blog post I forgot to mention how I went to a fashion show I think. I don't remember writing about it but it was sweet. My friend Sage's host sister was one of the models!

I stopped biting my nails for the most part. I know that's not really something y'all care about but I think it was a big part of my character and it's helping me be the new me. Whoever that may be. It's nice for guitar because (given that I'm in Latin America) every guitar is a classical guitar and no one uses picks. I have longer nails on my right hand so it's easier to play. While I'm on the topic of music I had something heartbreaking happen to me; so as some of you may know I don't sleep very much and when I do it's for strange times. When I couldn't fall asleep I used to just plug headphones into my mini keyboard I brought but the batteries died :(. I gotta find some more but they're expensive here for imported things. Especially since we don't have a coast line (thanks for that, Chile).

On Friday I went to one of my favorite places again, Mercado Mutualista. I go there all the time so it's not really like a big phenomenon I wanted to talk about. What I did wanna talk about was this one guy selling coconut milk out of like this big tub thingy. It was 2 bolivianos for a glass ($0.30). It was one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. But so is pretty much everything I get to taste. This guy was so freaking cool though. I was with Bryce and Sage when we got it so we were speaking some english like next to this guy. He didn't speak it but he thought we were funny and gave us like a ton of the coconut stuff you can eat from the coconut. It was great.

I don't know what to really say. Pretty normal week except for some stories that I really can't share with everyone. Sorry for the non-thrill inducing post this week, with my depleting funds I can't really have an adventure every day anymore.

Your friend,


P.S. Shout out to the clippers soccer team for winning the state championship for futbol (soccer)! I say that because I knew I wouldn't care even in the slightest if I wasn't currently living in South America where futbol is a REALLY big deal.
