…but they are in a tank. There used to be seven but one died.
The most important lesson of the day was the importance of the tilde in the letter ñ. Excluding an accent from a word doesn’t change the meaning but forgetting the tilde can have major consequences. Por ejemplo, la palabra “año.” Imagine if the tilde was left out of these sentences: ¡Feliz año nueveo! ¿Cuántos años tienes? ¿Cómo fue su año?
Today has been the most exciting day so far because we found out our post assignments. First, we had a very long introduction to our sectors. Then, to introduce each state, we watched videos highlighting the great things about the state. If you are ever in a lousy mood, you should YouTube ads for states because they are hilarious, like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raaG6cXvRIA So I will be in Jalisco working with CEFOFOR, el centro de formacion forestal. More on what that means in the coming weeks.
After work, our host families met us at the office and we had a party on the patio. Each host brought a dish to share and we had a potluck dinner. Everything I tried was delicious. Después, an instructor led some dancing and the families, volunteers, and staff all danced together and had a great time.
Recently, the family went to a party. When they left, they were given party bags containing sweets. Today, we received our first aid kits containing medicine like ibuprofen, bug spray, cough medicine, etc.. After the party, mi mama helped me carry my first aid kit home. Leo, 6, was so excited because we got a box from the party. He kept trying to open it to find the candy.
