School was good - I'm learning more specifics in grammar and am expected to do homework every night. I don't mind that as there isn't much else to do in the evenings.
We get free food at coffee time and today it was chuchito- ground maize with a tablespoon of meat, piquante salsa and a chile. It's wrapped in a corn husk and boiled. I had this a few times in Antigua for supper but usually Odilla made them with whipped potatoes, not corn-
Last night was horrible- I wore leggings, a long sleeved shirt and a hoody to bed, had 3 blankets and still partly froze to death. As if that wasn't enough, dogs barked, music played - starting at 5 am (even before the roosters crowed!) and at 4 am, some asshole was blasting firecrackers that sounded like loud bombs, or at least what I think bombs might sound like. Needless to say, I woke up tired - again, something I'm not used to at all. So, I'm moving downstairs to a different bedroom with a window towards the back of the property. Hopefully I'll get a better sleep!
This afternoon, four of us decided to check out a wine and cheese restaurant in San Juan. We came across this example of trompe l'oeil-
Eventually we found where we were going: El Artisano is well known for wine and cheese and I know why-
Can you believe that! There are 27 different kinds of cheese! It was so good! We also tried 4 different wines, then walked home-
Tomorrow- more school and a film in the evening as a class activity. Buenas noches!
