I have been here for three months, and this last week I got to do a few things that made me feel at home.
1. Sunday I was in the capital and attended a completely English speaking church service. I usually go to a service only in Spanish, so this was a great treat.
2. On Tuesday I got to go to an American school in the capital. I spent the morning visiting the elementary classrooms. A part that I really enjoyed was just relaxing in the school library that afternoon reading magazines in English.
3. I spent a few days at the apartment of an American friend. It felt homey and comfortable. It was a blessing to be able to relax there.
4. And finally, returning to Xela felt like home, too. It is funny how just three months in a place makes it feel like the place where I belong. I was glad to see familiar faces and know where things are.
