We were sad to farewell our host family who we’ve been staying with for two and a half months. We were pleasantly surprised by how well we fit into their family life. We had a great family gathering on our last night.
Especially delightful was the reception to our parting gifts. We gave a new phone because theirs doesn’t really work. You have to bang the receiver on the table several times after you pick it up before anyone can hear you. Sofia also liked her soft toy kitten, though Llama would have been better. Jose also liked his angry birds ball. Angry birds – or as he says ‘engri bud’ is the most complex English he can get his tongue around.
