“hello again from gapalagos (aka paradise!)
I just wanted to drop you a message to update you about my time here and what’s going on. I’m more than half way through my time here in the galapagos and I am in love with this place and these people. I have visited santa cruz and isabela but I can safely say san cristobal is my favorite island. the school is going really well after the initial teething problems and I’m really enjoying working with Lider and his students. my Spanish is getting better and now that there is another volunteer in the house we practice spanish together.
I met paulina yesterday and she came to visit me in the school. I think the issues I raised in the beginning were just teething problems, and being isolated without a firm grip on the language made me nervous. But I am much more confident now!
all the best
