Gotta Love that Spanish Food - excerpt from letter dated April 28

So far, I've put on almost 6 pounds. Three of those have been gained in a single week here, eating this European food. It's not that bad! The second day, there was this disk that looked, felt, smelled and tasted like a manta ray. But I ate it all up, and even talked about how it looked like something fresh out of the aquarium just so I could bother the sister missionaries. The first day, I ate shrimp. Whole shrimp, with the little black, beady eyes staring at me and everything. It wasn't as bad as you'd think!
