"Hey mom. I'm texting from a friends phone just letting u know I'm alive. If I find another place with wifi I'll tell u more. We r in Brazil and I'm about to go to mass so I just thought I'd give u a holler. All my clothes r wet and stinky. I haven't showered in 6 days. I'll try to text later. Tell everyone love em!"
"Ha ha. Br. David says I smell like the jungle. Not a compliment."
"Don't get worried but the second day in Argentina I sprained my knee playing basketball. It is fine, I'm having no trouble with it at all but M. Immaculate forbade me to play sports for the rest of WYD. I fell into a ditch a week ago and have a huge bruise on my foot. I lost my voice completely at Igauzu Falls."
She sounds like she is having a blast, but may need a new wardrobe when she gets home!
