On Christmas Day we were able to talk to Jordan for about an hour and a half. It was great to hear his voice and ask him questions about his experience. We thought we would share some of the things we talked about with you.
A TYPICAL DAILY ROUTINE
7am-get dressed, eat etc.
1-3:30pm-Study,rest,dinner (they stay inside their apartment during this time of day because the temperature usually hits over 100 and most people take their siesta during these hours.
3:30-10:00pm-work, back to the apartment by 10pm
Jordan also told us that Christmas Eve is the big holiday there. Fireworks are legal and are sold along the streets all day long. At Midnight everyone shoots off their fireworks. Some as big as a 1/4 stick of dynamite!!!! (Not what a mother needs to hear!!) Jordan said that it was sooooo loud and sounded like a war was going on.
We want to wish you all a very HAPPY Holiday season and a WONDERFUL NEW YEAR.
