We have finished our first week of classes. Everyone is in their homes and adjusting to being in a new place and speaking a new language. We toured downtown San Jose, took our first bus rides, negotiated taxis, asked for things in stores and for the most part managed to actually get what we asked for!!! We even celebrated our first birthday with two kinds of cake. Some interesting observations. The coins are so heavy!!! The Food is good!! "We are walking how far!" "POPs ice cream is wonderful". The students are doing a super job of working together and helping one another out. We have our first field trip to the waterfalls and photos will follow. It will be great to get out of the city for the day.
