High: Before coming here, one of the things I said I was going to do is go zip lining and I did it! I’m not usually one to participate in activities with many associated risks, but it was so fun! Definitely an experience I will never forget.
Low: I was sick for a few days this month. Begin sick in a new place that is far from home is not fun.
Glitter: Living with a host family is not always easy, but there are moments that are really great and when I really feel part of the family. Those have been some of my favorite moments here so far.
