First email - tuna with cut up hotdogs for breakfast

Hey Mom,
     I got here just fine! We got to the MTC at like 2:30 AM. It´s so humid here!! It was really cool to drive through the city. There are houses built up into the mountains just like they show in the pictures that look really cool, but we didn´t get to see too much of the city.
    My companion´s name is Elder ________, and he´s really funny. We had to get up at 6:30 this morning, so I only slept about two hours, but I´m feeling alright. We had a sandwich this morning that was literally tuna and some fake hot dogs on bread. Twas strange. We also had a fruit that you had to smash on the table and suck out the insides. It was actually pretty good (if you don´t chew).
   There are probably only around 40 missionaries here in total, and more than half of those are latino that speak next to no english. We manage to communicate a bit though by both of us using serious Spanglish. They are all really nice and patient with me.
   I only have ten minutes to write, so I´ll have to wrap up soon, but I love you all and I know you´ll all be okay! Also, could I have Kelsey´s email? I forgot it.
Love you all and I´ll talk to you soon,
