So I am at my new home away from home. We are staying in a little hostel near the center of the city and it is pretty cute but we were a little hesitant when we first got here (there were paint chips on my bed and the shelves were super dirty) but after a good nights sleep we were happy with our new abode. Good thing I brought my laptop because the wireless has been down since we got here and so I have not been able to load any pictures up. Unless it starts working (which I highly doubt it will) it might be a few weeks before I get some pictures on here.
But I love it here! The part of the city that we are staying in is in so cool! It is el cuidad viejo (look how much spanish I know!!) and the streets are super narrow and made of cobblestone. There are so many churches and cathedrals that are very beautiful. I have been to the market a couple of times with my teachers; somebody must have told them that the key to my heart is fresh fruit.
This is pretty much what you see in the markets and on the streets.
Its such a different culture here but I like learning about it... I will have to tell you about my very UNIQUE cultural experience when I can get my pictures up here- it definitly needs its own post.
My spanish skills are coming right along although I have a lot more work ahead of me than I thought. Hopefully I´ll survive.
