Mi Ultimo Dia en Quetzaltelango, el dieciséis de deciembre
I can't believe I'm writing this but already 7 weeks of school have come to an end! Some days seemed to drag but in reality, time flew! I have learned a lot of Spanish and can converse quite easily, even if I don't always use the right verb tense I can definitely make myself understood. So it has been a successful 7 weeks! And Xela gave me a gift this morning: my first earthquake! It woke me up about 5 am and while I was awake, lasted about 5 seconds. Pretty cool! Apparently it registered at 5.6.
After class I spent the afternoon sitting in the sun, enjoying my freedom and feeling sad! So funny. At first, I only wanted to stay a week, and now that 2 are over, I'm sad and could easily stay here. Not with this family but definitely in Xela. Weird. I know that as soon as I get on the shuttle tomorrow morning at 8 am and am on my way, I'll be excited and looking forward to what's next.
Tonight was a Christmas party at the school. We drew names early in the week and had to spend $6. I bought Nigel 3 large beer and I got a journal! Lucky! I also received my diploma-
Magdelina also gave me a gift: my very own worry dolls and a gold candle! Pretty cool!
