Overwhelmed but welcomed! I have arrived in San Andres, seen my room and met some of the people I will spend this next month with. It is beautiful here and the people are very kind. It is so different from home!
The people here made us tasty spaghetti with fresh, warm tortillas. They have been incredibly nice and accomodating of our awkwardness and inability to speak Spanish.
Th room here is cement with a screen window (which I am thankful for as giant bugs seem to keep flying into it and making loud bangs) and a fan. It is so incredibly hot and humid. Like 30 degrees at night! It is like being in a sauna all the time.
The bathroom is outside, past the barking dogs so Im scared to go when everyone is sleeping. Jonno also said there is a giant bug in there right now that looks like a spider and a cockroach had babies.
There is electricity and some running water sometimes.
Worry dolls for the night
1) Afraid I wont adjust
2) Afraid I will get homesick
3) Afraid of the animals and bugs
