|where we stayed at for orientation! well, not here, the building behind this, the bright green sign:)|
|random shot of part of the town|
|my hermana who i told to make a crazy face, and I guess I went to crazy-happy on her.|
|outside my bed room window of my little dirt town|
|these are the insane fireworks, built on planks of wood. when it goes off, i started running bc they go in the crowd and everywhere! i had to run to miss them.|
some quick facts:
1)i saw a llama finally!
2)i ate cow intestines and havent gotten sick yet, but dont think I want to try that again.
3) 7 more weeks till i get into site and will be working with kids and youth!
4)i got chased by 3 dogs last night until a peruvian saw me and saved me
5)I feel like a very awkward gringa around my family bc i still dont understand what theyre saying, and we are constantly having misunderstanding conversations. my mom will be talking about something and i will respond on a completely diff subject thinking im answering her, but i end up just confusing everybody that's around me, haha. But its fun, m learning slowly. a group of us volunteers have been having to interview random people on the street, and I finally can ask questions with them understanding!
6)me and a few others started our first youth group! during training we are supposed to get a bunch of youth together and teach them something. Last week we had 15 youth show up--we'll be teaching them english through music and art, and will also be doing some culture exchange information as well.
ill post more pics later when my comp is faster!
