First Week in Milan – Week 7

Ciao Everyone,

Braden-Griffiths-Mantova-ItWell okay, first about London!! All we did was stay in the airport. I was gonna try to call you but we didn’t have any time. After we made it through security it was time to board the next plane. It was like 2:00am for you anyway, so you were probably sleeping. Anyways, I didn’t get to see any of London. I was never close to a window so I didn’t even get to see it from the air:(  But, on the plane, instead of asking if we had any garbage, they asked if we had any “rubbish” so that made me lol.  Okay, so the flight wasn’t bad at all!! Our family’s flight to Florida was like a million times worse. I slept for like 4-5ish hours to London which was was nice and then for about an hour from London to Milan.

Mission-PizzaThe president picked us up from the airport and we went to the mission office and we had some pizza! It was out of a box so I think it was like a Pizza Hut of Italy. It was decent. Mine was a little burnt but that was okay!! We had fresh fruit like oranges and they were soooooo good!!! And we had fanta and that was yummy.

So then, we had some meetings and they gave us iPads to set up. Then we went to the Duomo!! It was so pretty!! Holy cow it was amazing!!  Like so so so pretty!!! It was incredible. I want to tour it. And I want to come to Italy with a nice camera sooo badly.Duomo,-Milan-Italy

That night we went to the president’s house and had dinner. We had a little pizza, salad, SUPER GOOD lasagne and the some gelato (basically just normal ice cream so not the real stuff…yet) We then went to bed!

The next day we got our trainers and areas!! But you already know that…My companion is Michael Pack. I’ll have him type up a bio about himself. My area is Mantova!! Or Mantua in English. It’s super pretty and they have a really pretty lake that we ride our bikes to on our way to the church. The streets are exactly how I imagined them.

Mantova-Italy-Street-Cafe-Everyday that I’ve been here it’s been cloudy and foggy and it’s getting pretty cold. Hopefully I can get some sweaters today. There’s a Gelatoria almost right below our room and it’s sooooo good, holy cow. Like wow!!!  I got some chocolate and nutella and cream with chocolate chip. It was way good. Also we ate at a members house and we had some white sauced pasta (really good) and some meat thing, bread, a salad, fruit and a cookie! It was tasty :))

Do you like the view from our kitchen? Just how I imagined it woould be. The inside of our apartment. Bed? A table to put a clock on? A lamp to read by?:(  Oh well, this isn’t home. The floor is nice:)
One thing I should mention…jet lag is sooooo real. It’s awful. I’m so tired allllll the time. So, ever since I got here on Thursday I’ve been feeling pretty crappy. All of the members have been really nice and are trying to help. We only have a Branch so when I say all the members, I mean it. (Like all 10 of them.) I hope mom that you don’t worry too much. I love you guys so much. I need to figure out how to email better cuz I am all out of time. Well, all I can say is that Italy is GORGEOUS!!!  I love you all soooo much. I’ll give you more detail in next week’s letter.

Oh, by the way, when we got here the mission assistants took lots of photos. When they get them up on the Mission website, I’ll let you know.

Ciao ciao for now!!!

Anziano Griffiths
