I arrived in Mendoza last night to the welcome of my host family, Rosita and Manuel. They are very hospitable and sweet. Today I saw many places in the city of Mendoza and met Rosita and Manuel's granddaughter and grandson. They are 3 and 5. It's been fun and exciting and interesting, but very tiring! Sometimes communicating in Spanish comes easily, but other times it is more difficult and awkward. It all depends on how tired I am at the moment and what the subject is.
I'm settling in well and looking forward to starting my life here in Mendoza!
