Jamie and Ashley thru me a surprise going away party on Thursday! It was the sweetest thing...I have the best friends anyone could ask for. Everyone else should be extremely jealous. It was so heart-warming to see so many friends come and say goodbye. I know I'm only gone for 3 months...but right now that seems like the longest time. Hence the reason I spent my last five days in Provo attached to the hip of my friends. I miss everyone already, but I'm so glad to finally be here.
The drivers here?...yeah CRAZY! Mom, if you thought Grandma and I were bad about yelling at people there, be glad we aren't driving around here. But Alcala is absolutely beautiful! My host moms name is Ana Maria and she is so so sweet. Chelsey (my roommate) and I just adore her and her grandson Oscar :) Here comes the best part...the speak no english. none. at all. I am dying...I can't understand them and they can't understand me....Why did I choose to come here again?! Oscar asked for my help tonight and as I was helping him and trying to talk he goes "What? I don't speak English." (in Spanish, of course.) Talk about embarrassing. Hopefully it will get easier but I'm just grateful for Chelsey right now haha.
I'll post pictures soon. Love you all!
