Hola! First, I CAN’T BELIEVE THE ELECTION IS FINALLY HERE! I voted well before I left for Guatemala and I’m excited to watch the results tonight. There are a ton of Americans in Antigua so there are a lot of people getting together to watch.
Anyway, things here are really good! I finally feel more settled in and I am able to find my way around this beautiful town.
It’s a small town with cobblestone streets. I can walk everywhere and I really love that. My Spanish lessons are held in a garden and there are a TON of students taking classes right now. I’d say 50 or so. Each student has his/her own teacher.
Some tables are in a corridor, but a lot of tables are on walkways. Mine is on a walkway and it feels like I’m in a jungle.
The garden is so nice and I’m there from 8 until 12, Monday through Friday. The afternoon is free or you can choose to participate in various activities. Today, I’m going to go on a macadamia nut plantation tour…mostly to have something to do so I’m not stressing out about the election. But it should also be pretty fun!
And here’s a better picture of los perros, Sam and Nina:
If Sam finds a way into my room, he immediately gets on top of my pillow. He is so similar to Biff, I adore him.
