Yesterday we rode the bus to church again. It takes about fifty minutes to get there once you add together the time it takes to get to the bus station and the actual bus ride. it's not too bad though. I am so glad that there is an English speaking branch here. It is definitely helping me to feel less homesick. Everyone here is so kind and patient and helpful, but being surrounded by a language you don't understand and feeling like an outsider all the time can take so much energy out of you.
Anyway, on the way to the bus station we have to cross over the train tracks. The chain-link fence on the bridge has locks and writing all over it. I guess that people go there to "lock their love." It's really pretty cool looking.
Some of the locks...
And my favorite...
"Spend more time with happy people and you'll discover happiness is catching."
And if you are a happy person already, then you get to help others learn to be happy! Life is good. Life is beautiful. I love it here. I feel home sick, but I think I will feel homesick when I have to leave here too.I found this quote and I really love it:
"Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you have decided to look past the imperfections."
Today while Rachel, Heather and I were at the grocery store one of the ladies that works there came up to us and said "Beautiful! You are beautiful!" We actually get that kind of thing from people here pretty regularly. Like I've said before, and I'm sure I'll say it many more times, the people here are awesome. I really love them.
Love you all! Hope everyone is doing well. If you want to see photos or hear about anything in particular leave a comment any time and I will do my best!
