We're home for lunch--this may look like a siesta- (it isn't) but it is much earned. Elder Ford says he's never driven in such terrible traffic as he's having to navigate here. It's exhausting! Congestion is a way of life here in this city, the oldest in this hemisphere. Today he went to the post office, customs, and to get the air conditioner fixed in our car. He picked up all the letters (post office) and packages (customs) for all the missionaries in our mission. It took several hours. The missionaries pay a fee for all incoming mail except FedEx and UPS Express mail. We also handle all the outgoing mail for all missionaries--keeping track of all these costs for each missionary is part of my job.
