084/020 110110 Bus Ride

Picture: Corney Ice Cream

A funny thing happened this week that shows perfectly how my area is (small and rural):

We were taking a bus back to the area from the local city (about the size of Orem/Provo) which takes about a hour. On the way back there was a loud noise and people started half screeming. The back tire broke and we had to stop and pull over. When we were out I decided to take a picture of the tire because I was having many difficulties this week of actually being in my area and this was a perfect example. When I took the picture everyone got interested and someone said how I was going to put it into the newspaper. I laughed my head off. I said I just liked pictures, and everyone got dissapointed.

Sadly, the most interesting thing that happened that day in Macabu was the fact that the tire erruptured and we were stuck on the side of the road. Only here would people think that so interesting that it would be in the paper. I should have sent in the picture, maybe it would have been!

Oh, and that reminds me of one excuse I had to not go to church. The person talked about having to milk the cows. I was far away from my full out area, so I just laughed and accepted and went on my way.

Have a good week all!
