The end of week one: arrival at my host family’s home where I will be living for the next 11 weeks. Training begins in full force on Monday. They are a lovely family – very warm, generous, and patient. I am their second Peace Corps trainee, but I’m not sure what level of Spanish the previous trainee came in with. No me preocupo, or from their side no te preocupas. poco a poco.

I have plenty of pictures, but I need to get a couple of confirmations and permissions. I need to figure out how to ask in Spanish if I can put their pictures up here.
