(and reading this) lol. but really. anywho! we had a good time, but almost all the stores were closed and the resturaunts and it was raining and cold but we had FUNNNN!!! and took a bus to lourdes which took 40 min (double to time it takes to get there by train), but it was worth it! we had lunch with the elders and saw the crazy church and got some holy water for yall (dont drink it or you'll need a blessing) and took lots of photos. :)
