We got here at about 3:30, met our families and went to our houses. I then met all the neighbors and talked with my sisters. WE played Dominoes and they taught me 2 new card games. My mom offered me every food under the sun and I snacked on Guayava- a fruit- and a really yummy caramel dulce!
After playing for a couple hours, I had to go back up the extremely large hill to eat dinner. For dinner we had tostones, spaghetti, avacado, break and crackers. They even made us kool-aid! It was fun to hear about everyone else's families too! A lot of us don't have siblings, but I am pretty lucky :) After dinner we came back home and played more dominoes with my dad- we won! Tomorrow we get to work building 18 latrines and cementing 5 floors..
So far so good! I think this will be a great experience. I'm still pretty nervous, but hopefully it gets better--- they speak so fast here!
