I’ve spent the last few days living in my new site with a new host family and meeting/working with new teachers. 
Yesterday, I walked about 9 miles around town trying to figure out where everything is.

It’s hot here. When I got home, the camisole under my shirt was completely drenched.

These hills are unforgiving too.

Eventually with these blog posts I’ll find a modicum of eloquence, but for now, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

Leaving this gorgeous view mañana. Be back soon.

    Hi Jade sure enjoying your blog, sounds like things are getting better for you or I mean your are getting more adjusted to your surroundings. Jade that was a beautiful thing you wrote about the last day you spent with your dad i’m sure you loved him very much and the memories will last forever. I love the pic’s you send of the countryside and all the areas around where you working , I’m waiting to hear about your 1st horse ride. Will talk later, enjoy yourself and have fun,

      Thanks Papa! I actually didn’t mean to post that one about Dad until later. I have several posts scheduled for January. I think about him often, and I’m thankful that I wrote down my thoughts when I sat with him.

      I’m really excited to ride horses! My family has a farm with three horses in a different town, so I hope I can go with them and ride sometime! It’s very beautiful here, but I live on a hill and have to walk up and down it to get to school! By the time I’ve been outside in the heat for 5 minutes I’m drenched in sweat! I love it here though.

    Looks like your home is built into a bank is that correct

      No, the bank is a little ways away.
