Week One of First Homestay

On Sunday, we met our first home stay families. Students are staying with them for about three weeks. So far, I can’t stop noticing how kind my family is, as well as Indonesian people in general. Yesterday, friends of my host family invited me to a birthday party, where we shared laughs mostly about how awful my Bahasa Indonesia is (Indonesian language). Here in Yogyakarta, where we are now, I have started to feel a little homesick.  At the same time, I know that once the trip is over, I’m going to miss Indonesia and its people dearly.
