Also, as we were running, we see this big cow across the street, and we were freaking out a little bit because it started running with us or after us or something, so we started darting towards houses and some protection. Then the priest comes out and is like, no, itīs ok, itīs a nice cow...itīs like the townīs pet...it wonīt hurt you! There are just random cows running around this town of like 8,000 people. RANDOM!
So training....we went into the schools this week for the first time, and we each have our own school or two to a school. My school is tiny...two rooms....pretty cute. But itīs insane. They have class from 8-12, and about maybe 20 mins of that time is actually used for learning. Iīm not sure how to describe it here; itīs just different, and there is so much to work on and do that itīs a little overwhelming right now. We are in the schools 4 hours a day, three days a week. The rest of the day we have Spanish class.
Tomorrow is an exciting day for us! We are going to this sweet spot about 1/2 hour away, and itīs a bunch of natural pools and waterfalls, and itīs suppose to be gorgeous. The weekends are great...we need time to just relax and speak in English! Last weekend we went dancing, which I am finally starting to get. Itīs all merengue, bachata, and rigaton. Here is how one guy asked me to dance last weekend....I was sitting with all the girls, and all of a sudden something hit me in the back. I turned around and this guy motioned to go on the dance floor. I was like...if he doesnīt have the energy to come over to the table and ask me to dance, and has to throw something at me to get my attention, what does he expect me to do. Needless to say, I didnīt dance with him. Another guy came over, asked my teacher permission if he could dance with me and was so sweet...so I did dance with him, because he did it so nicely!
Ok, Iīm sure there are more stories to tell, but Iīm running blank right now. Thanks mom and dad for the package! It was so exciting to get mail. Ok, adios!
