He sent his first email from his firstname.lastname@example.org email account on Thursday, January 15th, which read as follows:
¡Hola from Buenos Aires!
Well I made it in one piece! Fresno flight was delayed because of fog but still made it to Salt Lake with an hour and a half to spare. However I almost slept thru the boarding process but luckily I woke up to be one of the last ones boarding the plane. The Atlanta airport was pretty huge and airport food is super expensive! (I paid 17 dollars for a sandwich, cup of fruit and a bottled water). Arrived in Buenos Aires at 730am but didn't arrive at the MTC until 1030am. I clearly need to jump on the Spanish train because there isn't much English being spoke here. My next p-day [preparation day] is next Thursday so we will see how well I do for my first week in the MTC. If you're planning on sending any packages just send them to my mission and not to the MTC. There's a distribution center here as well as a temple. I didn't need to bring my own temple clothes for temple sessions because I guess they provide you with that, but an elder I'm with brought his. One US dollar is worth like 8 and a half Argentina pesos. Still have yet to find out if the toilets flush backwards. The weather is super nice here, and I can't wait to start learning. Also my companion's name is Elder Tidball and he's from Edmonton, Canada. Well, I think that is all the info I have for now. Got all my luggage and made it here in one piece so mission accomplished. I love you both and hope you're doing well at home. Tell the siblings I say hi.
With love, Elder Nelson
