Week One

San Juan La Laguna has been amazing. The people are welcoming and the views of the mountains and of the lake are beautiful. For my ISP I have been working at a natural medicine store. We made shampoo from aloe vera and rosemary. We also made a salve for sore muscles from manzanilla and other plants mixed with coconut oil and cacao butter. I got to learn about the different plants used in natural medicine and their properties. Spanish school has been helpful and also fun. It is on the edge of the lake and we get to study outside.
