I am adjusting very well to the new area. The sun has come out and we will reach highs of 38°C with only one day of rain next week. Within the next two weeks the population of Pucòn should multiply significantly with all the tourists. Today as a district we met together here in Pucòn and around a quarter to 1 we left in colectivos to Calabozos. From there we started our hike at around 1pm to reach the top. My companion and I hike this route once a week to visit familias who live up on the mountainside. It takes around 45 minutes when just the two of us do it. We hiked quite a bit farther and within an hour and a half we arrived at the waterfall Salto el Claro. We took lots of Pictures, ate lunch and headed back out. Now we are wrapping up our Pday writing to our families. I just realizad that half of these words have probably been automatically corrected into spanish due to Microsoft Office automatic spell check. Well thank you all for the love and support and everything you do. I hope all is well for this upcoming year, and I hope to hear back from you soon. -Elder Barker
