We have spent the last week living with our homestay families. Today, my family hosted a party for a big moment in their son’s professional development. As a result, there have been a lot of new people, including lively relatives in various traditional outfits, cycling through the house. I have enjoyed their company because meeting more family members has helped me better understand my host family and the country since many of them are from different regions. I have also enjoyed it because meeting lots of new people has given me plenty of opportunities to use my Spanish to discuss new topics.
