Ah, finally some free time, for the first time this week. This week has been amazing. I don´t have a lot of time to really write, so this will be short. Pueblo Ingles has been a blast, and I whole-heartedly recommend it to everyone. Spending the entire day talking to people from all over the world is surreal, and I feel bad that I cannot think of a more interesting way to describe it. Not only have I learned so much about other parts of the world, but spending an hour with a new person all day every day forces you to really try to describe yourself.
You realize that there are so many things about your life and your home that you end up repeating and thus thinking about in ways that you never normally do. I feel like I’ve described Vancouver, Canada, the Olympics, my job, my family, and my travels in ways that I’ve never even thought about before. I’m sure it’s the same for the other people here, too. I’ve only known all of them for less than a week, but it feels like months. This is like all the experiences of summer camp crammed into one week.
I don’t know what else to say that wouldn’t degenerate into describing each individual that I’ve met, but there are over 50 of them and I would have to talk about each one. Maybe later! Anyway, I have realized how much I do miss home, but also how incredibly important it is that I see the world. This has given me new confidence and a new determination to see as much as possible and talk to as many people as possible and learn about their lives. *sigh* Je suis prets
