Sister Flake and I got to SFO safe and right after i got off the phone with you we met up with 6 other missioanries. Three elders and three sisters. two of them are from idaho and the rest are from utah. once we got to the gate we met up with 2 other sisters one from idaho and one from the bay area. we all sat in the same general area on the flight over and we all really clicked. i love them a lot. THAT FLIGHT THOUGH!! So stinking long yo. I "slept" for like maybe three hours? and it was 14 and a half hours in the air. so that's fun. the person sitting next to me was watching so many good movies. he turned on thor the first time and i started crying and told him it was becasue i hated flying...oops probably shouldnt have lied but i couldnt take telling him that im crying because all i wanted to do was look at thor's face. but after i pulled it together it wasnt that hard to stay distracted. i read A LOT and talked with the elders next to me. it was fine (as 14 hour fligths go)
when we got to aukland we had to move our clocks back only 3 hours......but we're a day ahead. it's weird because it's 10 in the morning on thursday but it feels like 2 in the afternoon (which is what it is at home) so i was unpacking when they got us for emailing and it's really REALLY hot if you dont open the windows because there's no AC......like at all.
there's so many people with accents. LIKE EVERYONE HAS ACCENTS because only people from australia and samoa come here to either learn english or french or their native language. i don't have a companion yet but i'll send pictures when we can email again next week.
i have so much to say i'll make it quick and then give you more details next week. the accents are so hard to understand. the money is like a rainbow. the weather makes me so happy. THEY DRIVE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD. (okay but side note i ended up having to sit in shot gun from the airport and i walked over to where shotgun would be and the driver laughed at me and called me a silly american because i went on the side of the steering wheel)
okay so that's all for now and i'll get on some time next week to email you guys for real.
LOVE YOU BYYYYYYE
