Soo I can finally write a little bit more! My rash is gone from the malaria medecine, and I switched to another kind that apparently helps clear up your skin as well! So I guess I´ll tell you all about where we are staying here in honduras! We are staying in a town near Santa Lucia. It´s pretty cool here unless you´re standing in the sun in the afternoon. I´ve had to wear a jacket everyday. Our family here is very sweet. They are an elderly couple, 60 and 80. We share our bathroom with their son, who I think is a physical trainer, in a gym? Whatever he does, he lifts weights. He´s not there very much though. He gets home late and leaves early. We go to bed early and wake up early here. We start school at seven thirty. We have spanish classes for 4 hours in the morning and technical, safety, culture, and health classes in the afternoon. So far, they have been really interesting. All of our fellow volunteers are very nice as well. I have 3 other people in my language class, one is a gymnist and one does ballet! So during our breaks, I´ve been learning to do handstands and bridges and cartwheels! I´m pretty sore today. Bert hasn´t been feeling well today or yesterday either (I don´t know how to make sad faces here bc I can´t find the semicolon or the colon). He´s taking medicine though and is getting better. Other interesting things are there is a lemon tree in our backyard with lemons as big as giant grapefruits, we went on a field trip to a river today, the soccer field was all dirt, no grass, and there is a lot of poop in the street from donkeys! Well I think that´s all for now!! WE LOVE YOU GUYS!
