gallery 1No one will ever be able to understand this experience except those who have been here. You learn more than Spanish. You learn to survive on your own and conform to ways of life you never thought you would. I don’t have a car to jump into to go see my friends whenever I want. I don’t have a phone to call people. I have to learn to live simply and go to bed early because I have nothing else to do. This does not feel normal, but it gives me time to think. It is a good recess from the crazy life I made for myself at home.
