Argentina, Buenos Aires South Mission

1st email from Argentina 10-3-11

The flight to Argentina was long, but was good.  He actually answered questions from the flight attendants for about an hour and a half.  When he met his missionary president at the airport, they immediately gave him a pamphlet and told him to hand it out before they left.  His first area is San Francisco.  It's a pretty big area and is closer to La Plata than Buenos Aires.  He said there is a lot of walking, but they do get to take the bus too.  He said the people are awesome and the members are amazing.  The members do their laundry and feed them Wednesday through Sunday for lunch (they don't eat breakfast or dinner there).  He got to go to Florencio Valera and watch conference and loved it.  There are baptisms planned from the missionaries there before them and he is happy to be able to participate.  The food is good, pizza all the time.  Also empanadas and milanesa which is just like really flattened out fried steak.  They also drink a lot of tang.  But it comes in hundreds of flavors.  When he asks for water, he gets tang.  :)  His spanish (castellano) is coming along.  It was really hard his first day, but he is improving.  THe hardest part is understanding others, but he is getting better.
