... up being such a great experience; though I began this trip very uneasy about the lack of structure and support in teaching, it ended up being for the best, because Ashley and I were able to plan classes the way we wanted to instead of having to follow strict rules and curricula. I had an awesome last day, and I'm so glad I made the decision to go.
After Base5, we all headed back to the residencia real quick to grab some warm clothes and a few blankets; our final excursion ...
... Marc and Sergio didn't show up for class today, so Ashley and I got to leave the hospital early. We went to SuperDino to get some snacks and then ran back to the residencia.

We had lunch at this little restaurant about an hour away from the beach, where we ate fried chicken and potatoes. It was one of the best meals we've eaten ...
... cool today because we had two people show up! Sergio from my other lesson and Marc, the surgeon who previously let me know he couldn't always make it to class, came today and Ameenah and I got to talk to them in a 2 by 2 class. Marc wanted to know about our education system, so we told them how Elementary school, middle school and high school work in the US and compared it to their system.
