Just like the rest of this trip so far, the last couple of days have flown by. I can't believe that it has already been more than a week – I know I wont be ready to go home when the time comes.
Heidi and I are learning a lot of Spanish. Some of our favorite new words are obvio, fluido (which we almost are, obvio) and Guat's up. Our teachers are so much fun, which makes class even better! Heidi had some extra hours to make up one day after class to we headed to a cafe with Angelica, her teacher. We sat and chatted for a couple hours (in Spanish of course) and learned that Angelica is studying to be a lawyer, that she has a lot in common with Heidi and that she is absolutely hilarious. I wish there was a way we could bring these girls back with us!
We had our first sunny day in a while today and Heidi and I took to the streets to explore the local market full of everything you could imagine from DVDs to fruit to hardware supplies. We spent most of the time near the handcrafts searching out the perfect friendship bracelets (get excited, Jeremy). We found one, then found a couple more. Some of you lucky readers may even have one coming your way.
We were able to get in a couple of hours of exploring and studying our verbs on various patios is in the sunshine before the skies covered in clouds and we got caught in some of the heaviest rain I've seen since I arrived.
Due to popular demand, I've included some pictures of mi casa. Hope you enjoy them, Leigha!
