What were the highlights of your trip?

I initially did not want to go but my parents wanted me to have the experience of living in another country. I knew NO spanish when I left. I spent 2 weeks in the language school and 6 weeks in a small fishing town. When I arrived home I was fairly fluent in Spanish. The school was great. More fun that everyday school. Very interactive and I met people I will hopefully stay in contact with forever.
