I live in a small apartment with my host mom and her 25 year old daughter. My host mom has another son and daughter who are both married. Some of the other students I've talked to say that their host parents don't put much thought into the food they cook. But my host mom makes amazing food for me every night and asks me multiple times if I've had enough. She works as an accountant in the President's office all week and spends time with her children and grandchildren on the weekends. She always offers to drive me and my friends to where ever we're going and shows me around the city so I can become familiar with the city. I have my own tv and my own bathroom which is rare around here. I also have recently discovered the free internet that occasionally shows up in my room! My host sister is very nice and speaks English which is helpful when I'm at a loss for Spanish words! Soon she says she's going to take me to get my hair done so hopefully i'll learn how to keep it straight in this insane heat and humidity. Over all, I'm happy with everything and I think I lucked out!
