freaky taxi ride

so i took a taxi home the other day... im getting more and more comfortable with taking the public busses, and am learning more about what lines go where... that is good because its a lot cheaper than taxis, although compared to the us, the taxis here arent too bad.. 2 to 3 dollars can get you anywhere. so i handed the guy a 50 peso bill.. and he didnt have change.. so he got out of the taxi and walked to the store on the corner to ask for change.. the only thing is that he left the car in neutral and didnt put on the parking brake on.. so here i am sitting in the back and the car starts rolling forward, just a little bit at first.. i wasnt too concerned.. but then it started picking up steam and i started getting concerned becuase the hill was getting steeper.. i didnt know whether to hop into the front seat or yell at the driver.. i chose to yell at the driver.. he quickly ran over and hopped into the car and stopped it... that was crazy... life in argentina is always crazy!
ok, gotta go.. im speaking to the youth group in a few minutes..
BY THE WAY: DAVID BUCKENMYER AND DAVID FULFER, WITH HIS FAMILY ARE HERE!!! THATS GREAT!

OK, from now on you have to take the bus, and no walking on the street with Buck at night.

And yeah, how did the youth talk go? And Will, how do your big project go on Monday? I saw Russ when he got home from helping you. Looked like you two worked hard!
