Where I stayed
Mascail Family Home
On the plane ride here I couldn't sit still. I was just so anxious to get here and now I am so excited to see what this summer has in store for me. Tacloban City is beautiful so far from what I have seen. I am going to go pack now, I'll try to write again tomorrow.
So I am here. Finally where I will be for the next 3 months. My home stay is literally within 20 feet of the community center. When I arrived at the community center there were dozens of kids that immediately came up and asked my name. I was only here for 10 minutes and they already remember my name and are calling me Ate Elsa. I met my host family and they are very welcoming and friendly. Right now I am at the community center using my host sister's computer, who works for the community center. I have the afternoon to settle in and rest and then at 3 pm I will have my orientation.
