2017.01.02 Week 30 - I am in Roca

I am alive. I am in Roca. I will probably be dead by next week. It is millions of degrees here. And pretty ugly. I'll be fine. Probably. I might shave my head. The ward is super great, I am whitewashing*. So we don't really know anything. Happy New Year. My companion is from Brasil, I am a little worried, we have different ideas about every single thing. Ciao.

*To be Whitewashed into or out of an area is where both companions in an area are replaced or taken out of an area.
