Friday, January 29, 2016 -- Month #11 - Week #50 - Day #347 - El Dorado, La Entrada, Copan

January 29, 2016

This morning we went over to Florida (the area, not the state) to pick up 2 white skirts for the baptisms! So that was a fun little field trip. Then we got some more things ready as well. And our lunch got canceled so we found a food place and got ourselves some Mexican tacos. Then had to go find the church keys and wash the skirts and get them mostly dry (it was cloudy and rainy today and nothing dried completely) for the girls to try them on for tomorrow, and go bring them to the church for their interviews with Elder Alfaro, our District Leader, and than get them ready and through their interviews, and try on the skirts, and then walk everyone back home in the rain and mud, and finally got a little bit of a rest when we went over to Hna Benitez and had atol chuco to warm up us.
And our atol chuco adventures!
Atol chuco is basically fermented corn meal mush soup with some beans floating around in it. Then you can add chile, lemon, or crushed up chips / Dorito type things from the pulperia to add some more flavor. I thought it was good, probably as I like sour-spicy things, but most of the missionaries, latino and gringo, don't like atol chuco. But it was good to try it, and apparently Hna Benitez makes really good atol chuco according to everyone we know down here. So if there was an atol chuco to try, it would be hers.
