Dear awesome little brother,
Hi! I loved your letter, and I can't wait for the others! You asked me some questions though, so here you go!
Question: I wonder what foods you have eaten?
Well I've eaten some weird stuff. Some of the candies here are super yummy! The weird stuff has to be the "regular" food they eat. It's always on rice, but it's usually really spicy Even more spicy than any of the food Mom ever makes us! It makes my mouth be on fire, and my entire face sweat--plus, I have no milk to wash it down with! It's also weird to chew and eat fish bones. Some of the meat I've had could have been ANYTHING.
Question: Who's your companion?
My companion is Elder Manqana from South Africa. He's a big guy, and he seems pretty serious always.
Question: If we brought Kona and Havee [sic] into Librea [sic, and adorable] would the locals try to eat them?
Not if the knew they are our pets! I see doggies running around pretty often, but they're all gross and scraggly. Everything in Liberia is food!
Question: What is it like there?
Hmmm... Like camping and living combined, but with a lot more dirt and smelly things.
About the rat: Whoah. That's crazy. And gross. But super awesome at the same time!
Your Big Brother,
Elder Makani Rain Price
P.S. I miss video games. Play Kingdom Hearts 1 for me. And beat it.
