Argentina- First Week in Cordoba! -Cara

Being silly with new friends at orientation week in downtown Cordoba.

Being silly with new friends at orientation week in downtown Cordoba.

The first days were definitely harder than I thought they would be. Once we got busy and started to tour Córdoba it got a lot easier! I love the city and the people in it. They are all very welcoming and so nice! It was a little weird for me at first to be welcomed with a kiss on the cheek because we don’t do much of that back in the states but now I love it! Even complete strangers will welcome you into their home which is very comforting! I do have my days though where I miss my friends and family back home, but I know I will get to see those people again. The people I meet here I might never see again so I know that I have to make the most of my time here!

I am hanging out with my host sister and her friends a lot which is nice because that way we get to know each other a little better! I have one host sister and a host mom and they are both really comforting.

Meeting and greeting my host family for the first time.

They said that I can talk to them if I’m ever missing home and that I should feel at home here. I don’t start school till March 5th. I am a little for that just because I will be the new kid and feel very overwhelmed because of the language. I know however, that the language will start to come easier for me and after a month or so it will be much easier. I have been here for two weeks now and am looking forward to the next four and a half months that I have ahead of me!
