All of these pictures came in emails today. Kind of in random order but fun to look at!

hey fam. first thing...my debit card doesnt seem to work down here. this isnt urgent but if you could look into that. also i have a strrong feeling ill learn a dialect out here in the mountains soon. there are many and i will put money on it. i figured out why it rains so much here )and it does) its because if any city needs a bath...its this one. hows the no soda thing? im doing fine oh ok here we go. so i have never seen a more humble people financially. they are very poor. i have also never seen more spoiled kids in my life. we will be in a house with dirt floors and no real roof and the kids are so spoiled! parents dont tell there kids no here. weird.... I SAW AN ALBINO COCKROACH IN MY MICROWAVE!!!! tell biscuit he isnt good enough for julie. dont even think about it c'ham. ha oh heres something cool...so the busses here are nuts...the drivers text while they drive its sweet!!!! but they drive all over the city doing their routes and if they are in a gang area they have to pay money to the gang to operate in that area. but if they dont this is what happens....you are riding in a bus and then a motorcycle pulls up alolgside the bus....and shoots the bus driver!!! isnt that awesomeDISCLAIMERdear mom i say scary things like this and many would say thats not nice cause it scares you. but its ok for me to do. why? because your son connor race davis would have been dead the second day in this city. just dead. Elder connor race davis will be safe every day hes here. ergo i joke. the end yesterday during companionship study a 3 inch slug crawled across our floor. it was HUGE. and aweome some perfect person here in guajitos follwed the counsel of christ -he that is without sin amoung you, let him cast the first stone- i got hit in the head by a rock yesterday in the street! it was so aweomse i had a goose agg for like 7 hours. the last few days weve been getting yelled at alot and stuf casue it was guatemala independedce day so it was a good excuse to be mad a gringos. its all good though. ok so your remember elsa? she cant get baptized yet. she has to get marrried to her husband but now that they have the money we find out her husband (heretofore to be refered to as schmo pants) has another family in nicaragua. what a jerk. so they cant get married yet. well see how it all works out. i am getting all your letters sisters dad and friends. and thank you for them! not much else. oh one more thing dear reece kirby hadlock because of the strange fascination the world now has with michael jackson after his death coupled with the fact that people here live in the 80s and love american stuff i hear michael jackson all the time in the streets in stores on busses etc. i am becoming a fan of michael jackson as you always wished. felizidades universe, you win. from race anyway..... oh sorry i didint email on manday im attaching pictures. love elder davis
