thank goodness I'm already orientated
I've been helping out with the CIEE orientation over these past couple days (by which I of course mean eating their food and insisting they hang out with me) and it's really reminded me how far I've come in this country. I can feel at ease in the streets, I can carry on a great conversation with my host family in which I understand 90- 100% of what's being said, I can go to a new place in Lima by myself. I don't think I fully appreciated those accomplishments at the end of last semester, but I have to admit that it was great to be reminded.
You may have noticed, due to my last post, that this experience is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Sit tight.
Chocolate chip cookies and Oscar party with my lovely friend Francesca tonight. I don't even know the nominees, but I'm really excited to see the pretty lights and colors. What can I say?
