June 20, 2008

OK, so here we are. We got up, had breakfast. My stomach was still was uneasy, but I was able to handle the smell of the eggs being cooked....barely. They had mango, papaya and cantaloupe and eggs. I ate like half and egg and half a cup of fruit. That was pushing it. Senora Lydia drove us to the school today to make sure we got there on time. We sat there in the office for a little while and then went back and made sure our account was up to date. Apparently we didn't pay for our ride back to the airport in August. So we paid that and gave them our money to change it into pesos. We went back to the assistant directors office to do a "test" to see how proficient we are. Yeah, I didn't know jack. Seriously, like nothing. I think the guy was laughing inside about how lame I am. Oh well. Drew could conjugate much more than I could. I don't know if we'll be in the same class or not. I know I rely way too much on him, but honestly, I don't mind.

So we came back to the house at 9am and I went to lay down cause I was hot, sweaty and just not feeling well. I think we're going to move our twin beds next to one another today...or at least Pablo will. hahaha I need a maid. Also, this whole no toilet paper in the toilet thing is difficult to remember. I think I fell asleep for a few minutes, it felt good. I felt bad though since Drew was anxious to go do something, and here I am, not wanting to even move.

At 10am, we came back to the school and paid for internet for 2 months, and now we're sitting out on the patio while everyone eats lunch. The smells are making me a bit nauseous, but I'm trying to stay calm. I feel shy and out of place here. There's these somewhat large groups of people here, like 4-8people. Then there's us. Everyone else, except escorts? are in high school too. We're old and newbs, so it's a bit daunting.

So I don't know what else we're doing today. I think the internet access is accessible at the house since it's like in the backyard of their home, even though there's so many trees, you can't tell. I think I might want to go walk around the school and figure out where things are.

The lady that showed us around the school was talking a million miles a minute, I understood so little, but hopefully enough to get around, since pointing helps a LOT.

I think that's about it for now. I have no idea what we're going to do this weekend. They have excursions lined up with the school, but we can't afford all of them, so we have to pick and choose what we do.

There's a literally green fly hanging out. It's like the size of a bee, but BRIGHT green. crazy!

I'll upload pictures later on. I'm hoping that the 2 bars for the internet are accessible at our little casa tonight so I can get on then. That' would be most awesome.

Hasta Luego!
