Area: Oxford, Mississippi
Companion: Elder Cy Despain
The general area is usually referred to as Ole Miss. We will be visiting the campus plenty in the time to come because school is starting back up again and a lot of people will be showing up. On the campus they have a spot called Fulton Chapel. A white building, looks like a chapel on the outside but on the inside is a theater. It's never locked and often empty, we like to hang out in there to feel the Air Conditioning and take phone calls while around there.
We ride the buses rather often. The public transportation here is pretty good. Costs a dollar per ride and you can get a transfer ticket sometimes to save you a dollar on the return trip, or if you need to switch buses to reach a certain part of town. None of the buses are double decker though.
The area is centered on Oxford and Ole Miss, but is an enormous area that is far from everybody else. It seems to be my fate to be far from the other areas. We go out to a place called Batesville, also Bruce, Banner, Water Valley and Paris.
We recently had dinner with the Jones, who have a Lego tower of Orthanc in their living room. (One of the Two Towers from Lord of the Rings, Saruman's Tower in Isengard)
We last night ate with the Griffith's, who have a son named Jaxon. He is two, but claims to be three, and is very cool. Thank you Grandma for your letters, and at the meeting I finally got an old letter from Karoline!
