So apparently, I misinterpreted much of what was said to me on the first day. As it turns out, the lady that made us dinner was a very good friend of Damarias’ not the housekeeper, although they do have one. Also, her name is not Laurita….Laurita is the name of the family parrot who loves saying ‘hola’ and whistling “Yellow Submarine” and “Jesus Christ Super Star” among others. AAnyway, today was a good day in that school was slightly less intense, but I still have a ton of homework to do. We just got back from seeing X-Men in the theater, fortunately in English, and it was pretty good. Today we also got to meet their daughter, Nicholas’ mother, and her husband. He is originally from Miami and she lived in the U.S. for a while too, so it was refreshing to speak English for a while. I realize I’m here to get better at Spanish, but its nice to have a break! Other than that, there’s really nothing new to report, but I guess no news is good news!
Hasta la proxima!
