Mother's Day

We were able to skype with Aaron on Mother's Day. Technology is amazing!  Everyone came over and we bombarded him with lots of questions. The 40 minutes went by way too fast and didn't seem long enough, but it was so good to see him happy and well.

Whenever Aaron says the week has gone by fast, we know that he is busy.  The first month in Chaguanas has been quite an adjustment getting used to a different place, culture, climate, people, language...oh and of course the food!  Roti (similar to tortillas) served with various fillings.  Goat meat...in his words "shouldn't be edible. It's so tough and tastes like lawn clippings, haha."  Smalta - he describes as a Caribbean molasses drink that he had to choke down.  Chicken livers - 'gross'...and last but not least - Chicken Feet! "Oh-my-gosh! Nastiest feeling in the world! Looks like an alien hand."  (He does say that Elder Gibson is a good cook :)
