After la comida en the afternoon, all of us students decided that we wanted to explore the centro. I am continually blown away by the beauty in this city! The buildings are so amazingly colorful and grand. There is literally a church on every street that is muy antigua (antique/old). We wandered around and tried not to stick out like a sore thumb. That went really well for about two minutes, until this clown guy performing in the streets looked directly at us as we walked by and said "HELLO" in the most americanized acent he could muster up. That blew our cover because everyone around looked at us and started laughing. It was quite a scene haha. But we are doing our best to speak spanish when we are all together, because it's respectful of us and it is necessary to practice with people who you know are learning too. We wound up at a little coffe shop and sat listening to the drums playing in the plaza and jumping because of the fireworks that kept going off every five minutes! Then, I almost died laughing when we saw this little boy in a remote control fararri, that his dad was driving from the steps not to far away. Needless to say, I shed a few tears of joy watching him.
After we finished our coffee, we decided we'd attempt to get home. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, thanks to Justin's pro-navigation skills. We all live semi close to eachother, which is awesome for walking home. I arrived safely at my house, where my senora greeted me.
Continue to pray for my comprehension of the language, but more so that I will learn vocabulary quickly so I can express the things that I want to say. Here are some fun pictures from our adventure hoy!
Gracias por sus oraciones y Dios le bendiga!
Thank you for your prayers and God bless you :)
