Trip to Usulutun

[This was written by another missionary who went with the group to Usulutun]

Ok, so this week we were sent off to Usulutan, the native cultural area that started the pupusa, to go translate for doctors giving away glasses. We met one Mormon doctor from Italy and there were doctors from Italy, Canada, and the states. It was really weird having to think who I’m talking to speak one language or the other. Especially because some people spoke Spanish and looked American and some spoke English and looked foreign. A few only spoke Italian and a little English so they were completely confused. But to get out there we had to get up early, terrible, and drive two and a half hours there in jungle, because the highway was out we had to take a back road (which in American means off roading in a van) and we had to get out and push twice, should have worn my boots. On the way home we drove on the highway that goes by the beach, but its still twenty minutes to the beach and it was misty so I might have seen the water once but I’m not sure. But we had a ton of fun.
