So far…

Estatua de la PazAs I continue with my stay here in the city of Guanajuato, I realize that I am getting more and more used to the lifestyle here. I am getting much closer to my host family, they are very caring. It is interesting to think that there are many Mexicos, not only one. With that I mean that the lifestyle here in Guanajuato can be completely different from the north, south, east, and west of the country.  There is many differences from state to state and even from the state of Guanajuato itself. My host family’s house is huge, from the terrace I can see the whole city, the view is beautiful.

Most importantly they are committed to help me feel at home. I have gone several times with them to Leon. I have to be honest the houses that we visited are very nice, they are upper middle class homes.  As for my classes I have made new friends and it definitely is a joy to be more emerged into the culture in a more academic way. I have learned new words at the college level, and I am striving to keep on reading books! Right now I am reading Octavio Paz “Laberinto de la Soledad.” This book has opened my eyes to so many things…. I love my stay here in Guanajuato and I would not change it for the world. Not only am I learning so much about my country, I am also learning tons about myself.
