Title: Not ready for goodbye
To start I would just like to express how amazing this trip has been. It has been the best time of my life, and I don’t think any of us want to leave. It has been our home here for two weeks and it’s starting to feel like just that. I feel at home here. We were all so welcomed by the staff here as well as the entire class getting along well. I know this trip won’t last forever, but the memories will. I would encourage anyone who wants to study abroad to just go for it. I admit I was nervous before this trip, I had never left the country and I didn’t know what to expect. I am more than happy about participating in this program. So for anyone out there who may be afraid to try something new, I’d say don’t be afraid to get your feet wet (literally).
From what we saw of the country, it seems amazing. The water is almost a constant 81 degrees, the sun is usually shining, and the people are usually shining as well. It is such a happy and relaxing place. I know I will miss it, and may even come back to visit. That all being said, I feel that above all we all made new friends, and I’m hoping these friendships all last. After spending two weeks with a group of people you get to know them fairly quickly and deeply. On a side note, I’m writing this in a nice warm breeze looking out over a beautiful bay, a sight I will soon long for. I feel like I took this for granted, my time here is almost up and I feel like I just got here. Well, that’s it for me. Peace mon!
