Ok, So I live in Leon Moderno, which is the central and southwest part of the city and It is HUMONGOUS!! It is just me and Elder May In all of our area, So it is so much walking! First day we only walked 2 hours and my feet were dying. But Now I have gotten used to all of it. Elder May and i are getting along super well and he is an awesome companion!!! I love Leon here, there is McDonalds, and Burger King and Subway and CCCCCCCOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTCCCCCCCCCCCOOOOOOOOOOO!! 

We went there today and spent 1000 peso each, and now we have so much food!!!!!!!!!! It is so awesome! We had chicken bakes and bought costco muffins! Elder Mays birthday is also this Saturday so we bought a cake and I will be using my decorations I got from you :)  The Members are way better and the ward is super nice! 

But as gringos here, Elder May and I attract too much attention. I found that out when i was assaulted here! YAY!! We were walking on the street and these two drugees came up to us, one in front, one in back. Elder May, my companion, is super tall and so he walked past them no prob. They grabbed me as I was walking and pushed me against the wall! They both had their hands in their pockets, undoubtedly a shiv or a knife, and told me to wait for just a minute. Not gonna lie, pretty scary. Elder May came back and started asking "What do you want?!" really angry and they just kept saying "Wait a second, just a minute". So there was me up against a wall and my companion arguing with two guys who wanted to shank me.

 Then, out of nowhere, this huge guy gets up from across the street and starts screaming at the drugees "leave the guerros alone!". He had a big cottonball in his right hand, which is what they use to sniff paint thinner, but he was massive! He came up to us, pushed the drugees away and told us to walk. My mind was shut down so Elder May told me "Walk" in english and it computed. We walked away and Elder May shouted "Gracias!" To our drugged angel. Not gonna lie, that was divine protection and we talked with a member later in the day and his eyes got super big when we told him the street name. He told us that was where people stabbed other people for no reason THEN took their money. We are blessed, seriously!! We got away, didnt lose any money, and we are totally safe! We now know all the streets that are dangerous and won't go there anymore after 6:00 so there's plenty of light. We are all good, we were just a bit freaked out but it is all calm now and good, so dont worry. Love you tons!!!
