Nadie escarmienta en cabeza ajena
...or Nobody learns in the head of someone else!
So here we are, in the middle of nowhere (again) but this time in Mexico... the other side of the world for us, learning! Learning about a new culture, learning a new language and learning from past experiences which should have helped us to mature (without taking the fun away).
We just been in L.A. for a couple of days, visiting Hollywood Blvd, the walk of fame bla bla bla (nothing special, just a street with different tiles on the pavement) and we've been trying to catch up with the time difference, but now it should be easier as we're only 6 hours behind GMT while L.A. was 8 hours behind (I was up at 3am as it would be already 11am in UK).
So I have some sleep to catch up with. And some laundry. And some ironing.... Sigh!
The flight from L.A. to Zac was very pleasant actually. Nice spacious plane, very quiet and half empty. Never enjoyed a flight so much to be honest.
We landed at around 5pm local time and the sun was still scorching. But what struck me was the amazingly blue sky (el cielo azul). There were NO CLOUDS at all. And keep in mind that we're coming from rainy season in Uganda and the beginning of winter in UK so for us to see such a clear sky it's something!
Some brothers kindly came to pick us up and drove us home, which is next to theirs.
From what they say, things looks much easier here than Uganda of course but the field is still the same! And, this is official, there is great need in the English field... so much need that Bethel decided to send an MTS brother to the congregation (that's why I say it's official...because it is).
A couple who was living here and left recently kindly offered their house as they had paid rent in advance. This will allow us to look for a place suitable for us.
So we're here, ready for a good night sleep and the start of a new adventure!
Tomorrow we'll go around to get used to the place and I'll take some pictures so to give an idea of what Zac looks like.
Buenas noches a todos
