Today I received cards, a poster, food, and a tshirt. The staff and students at the school are all very sweet. Tonight I will spend my last night with my family. It doesn't seem real that tomorrow I will be leaving. I plan to stay in touch with my teacher and with my family. My family discussed me staying longer if it was not for graduation. Mark (host brother) said that I can do that over Skype. We have already discussed them coming to visit me in the states.
I am very thankful to have been given this opportunity. I met some wonderful teachers, worked with some great students, and had an amazing host family. I will encourage others to take on the same adventure. Not only do you learn about other cultures but you also discover things about yourself.
