Right before I left for Christmas break, Marina (the one I share a room with) and I got bunk beds. We donated our beds the the church bazaar because our room is literally too small to have 2 beds. She donated her mattress and the bed frame while I just donated the frame. My student's mom is the manager at the store where I bought the bed, and she gave me a great deal. Instead of paying 7,000 lempiras I only paid 4,000. (19.5 lempiras to the dollar) What a blessing! It's a really nice wooden bunk bed- Marina and I only have 1 problem. She still has not bought her mattress. Which means the 2 of us are sleeping on the bottom. We'll see how long this lasts- hopefully not much longer!
