I have been in Bolivia for a week now, and each day it seems like something happens that I want to remember. I go home and write it in my journal but would also like to share some of these thoughts and experiences with the many family and friends that helped me get here.
As a quick introduction, I am starting my year in Cochabamba with six weeks at the Maryknoll Language Institute. I live with a host family. My mom´s name is Ana Maria la Fuente (more often called Anita) and her two daughters are Cecilia (20) and Daniella (19). Next to our house is the house were Anita´s mother, brother, and niece live. We also have two dogs named Gordo and Bianca, they look like living mops.
