I am so glad i did this. it was an amazing experience! i learned so much about myself, God, and another country. It was a challenge, however, living in another country and having to speak the language as soon as i got there. I miss talking in spanish now, and i actually miss hearing it all the time. its nice to watch tv though in english (i dont miss spanish tv). i need to keep up with my spanish so i dont loose it which i feel like i am. one of my family members speaks spanish so i am hoping i can talk with her to keep it up and she has told me that she is only going to talk to me in spanish now. that should help, i hope. i have tried to talk in spanish here a couple times and one lady just looked at me weird and gave me some attitude, and one man was surprised and said "que bueno" to my spanish speaking. : ) people aren't so friendly here.
Now it is time for me to start getting ready to go back to school. I need to get into that mode now and back into reality.
Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers while i was gone. i believe it really helped and made my trip a safe one!
This is the end of my blog for Costa Rica, but i know i will be going on more adventures and trips so maybe ill have blog for those one day.
take care everyone!
