Me in the hotel room (not where I live now)
So it's Tuesday and I have completed my second day of TEFL courses. It's pretty fun so far and I love the class. I moved from my host family to the school campus because I was the only one living away. However, half of the class moved out and into an apartment because they didn't like it here and wanted air conditioning. The rest of us are roughing it. My dad would be proud. In order to take a shower I had to kick out 2 crabs, a beetle looking bug, and some other thing. However, the Super 2000 (Supermarket) sells 409 so I'm armored now. The class only consists of 7 of us, and then one guy's girlfriend is here for moral support, (no, really). The four people that live with me are Lonny (46 and currently from Guatamela..(but really from the U.S), Karen (28 from Maryland), and Rebekah (29) from Cali. We're a good mix.

There are pictures of the school for you guys to see as well. It's pretty and has LOTS of stairs that lead to different classrooms (2), an office, a lounge area and kitchen, and rooms for living. We also have a laundry area

way on the top. Next door are some huge houses and farms. And yes, there's even a rooster. I think he's special though because he doesn't wake up until like 7.

Anyways, nothing too exciting has happened yet. We've just been in school and getting acquainted with the town which I really like. It's pretty simple to navigate and is an easy walk from the school. Plus it's like 2 bucks for a taxi which prevents you from sweating like a pig.

I'll update soon. Adios!!

Jesus Christ! That's the name of the lizzard you will see if you look close. Not because they sneak up on you (which is why I call them 'Oh Shit!'s', but because they walk on water
