The first went by so fast. I spent Sunday night and Monday morning homesick. I was nervous and unsure of what to do with out my friends. It always takes me a while to adjust somewhere new when I’m by myself. The food here is a lot richer than in the states, but I brought some pro-biotics and that has helped my stomach adjust and not get as sick. The new language has been a challenge because I can’t always say exactly what I want, but I’m learning quickly how to rephrase what I want to say with the words I know. If I need a different word, I am always willing to look it up. The older feel of the city is amazing, the architecture is seems like something from Europe, not Mexico. I want to learn more about the public transport system, as I’ll be using it a lot more in the upcoming weeks. I also want to learn more about the history of the city because it seems like a beautiful city with a long history. I want to keep the learning about aqueducts that run through a part of the city. In the few days I was here before classes started, I learned they built the aqueducts because a nunnery needed fresh water because the river had become polluted. Much of the architecture in the downtown part of the city came from outside influence and was built much like a European city. Using the public transports has helped me see the city in a new way and see it’s beauty in a new way.
