Currently, we're in the middle of a giant storm and the wind is like 100 mph and it randomly downpours. Cherbourg is amazing and I kind of want to live here when I grow up. It rains every day and its only sunny possible once or twice a week. The wind is crazy though! If I could send you a picture of my umbrella you would laugh. It's a mess. So basically i've decided to just get soaked for the rest of my mission. Actually they have umbrellas here called parapluie de cherbourg. I think and they are 250 euros. BUT they are windproof and huge.
We just took a picture with a life sized Link...! Yes, I am talking about the Legend of Zelda Link, but plastic. It was awesome but the guy took off his sword because people kept taking it ,haha. I bought my first video game in French.
We had an exchange and I went to Caen for 2 days with Elder Christensian who was really cool and super nerdy so he is fun. We listened to video game music in the appartement which I enjoyed.
Ca c'est l'histoire de ma vie ici dans Cherbourg. As I said, we had Zone conference and it was really cool. It was my first here in France and actually like 10 people from my MTC district were there and we talked the whole time. We got tons of candy and we did a white elephant. I got a ruler for someone and said they rule. Aren't I creative? And I received a chocolate bar. Not fair. But the best part was that we got Santa hats and I've always wanted a santa hat since mine broke in England but never got one so that was quite the surprise. We live on the pier where all the boats are. It's nice and humid here and I love it.
It's fun because it's pouring rain and you would think that people would feel bad for us and let us in and sing with them( president told everyone we have to tell them we want to sing with them. Me + singing= death) but no. They don't haha. Wooowww the wind just blew open the metal garbage can in front of me. Its kind of ridiculous. So that was my week.
This week is Christmas and we have off Christmas and New Years all day and then the eve of the 2 at 500 pm which is chouette.
I've decided to work my butt off in French because I have a really strong feeling I'll be using it in the future. Hopefully, I'll become a pro. Hope you all have a wonderful CHRISTmas and get lots of good presents. Love you and peace out! BYE!
