hola! i am in south america & loving my life!
its nice & warm today, about 70 i think. kind of humid.
the team woke up at 7:30 and ate breakfast then some people went grocery shopping & got some papel hygenico...because we had none. haha. now we are writing emails & checking our facebooks! i thought i would drop you a line.
everyone in south america is GORGEOUS! the people i sat next to on the second flight from miami to medellin (pronounced med i gene, in case you were wondering. i called in med eh lin in my head for a while) were so nice to me & so cute. so definitely an upgrade from the denver to miami people.
today is a day of gathering what we need for the next few days in food. then exploring the town a bit. we live right off of the street in a nice building with a kitchen, common room, and a few main rooms where we sleep on...beds! what a blessing!
hopefully south america won´t steal my heart, but you never can tell with these things....
i love you guys so much! have a great weekend & be blessed.
also: a sidenote...
people in colombia love fireworks and light them off...all night...so it was kind of hard falling asleep last night. we asked our new friend Anit about it this morning and she said they do that until the new year.
so that will be interesting! my spanish is not very good anymore, so pray that i catch on soon. love you all!
