"The Girl" anti-update

I am sorry to keep all of you waiting for the conclusion of the story but things have been incredibly busy for me lately. I was out of town all last week doing "long field practice." We went in groups to different PCV sites and practiced giving presentations in schools. It was a very full week... let´s just say I learned more and became more confused about the culture all at the same time. So it was a success.

Tomorrow is future site day! We finally find out where we will be living for hte next 2 years. Cross your fingers for me, i´m hoping for a spot way out in the country. Thursday in Thanksgiving and I will try to make a quick update to let you all know where I will be going. I don´t know which I am looking forward to more, my future site assignment or Thanksgiving! I hope somebody is able to find cranberries...

Also, If you want to get a letter from me send me your address. I can´t make any promises but I will do my best. You know, a great way to let me know what your address is, is by sending me a letter! Just something to think about. Thanks to everybody who has left comments and emails. I thrive on your attention...

Well, I´m off to get some ice cream and hike through the sugar cane field.

Until next time,

- Agustìn

p.s. I will update the girl situation, but I want to do it right and there hasn´t been time. I will say that my progress in learning the language has helped incredibly in the past week.

Thanks for the new post exciting as always. I'm glad to hear that you are having so many new experiences. Is this girl thing some huge fabrication? It seems like something you would do. Continue to enjoy. By the way it is snowing here. First day of snow!

Come on, is this something I would make up(question mark gone because this keyboard is broken)...

Honestly, the culture is very different here. If you are single, people are shocked. It is almost expected that guys will take every opportunity to date any single girl possible. At least, that has been my experience so far. They can be very pushy too. It is complicated and I don´t fully understand it so I am waiting to write that post up.

Congrats on the snow, I miss it so... actually no...
