hey everyone! so the last 2 months have been good. I think I went through a bit of a culture shock fase, really missing everything from home- but now I got over it, and am really good!

almost christmas!
here they celabrate christmas on the 24th with dinner, giftgiving and sometimes mas. they have set ups of the baby jesus in the manger called nacimientos, which I helped set up for my host sister in loja, and my host mom here in piñas. they´re cute :)

here the weather is the same, haha, no snow, though piedad mentioned that in quito sometimes it hails hielo (ice)

hope everything is really fantastic back home with you guys!

lots of love, sarah
