From Anna: 
This month has been fantastic and has gone by so quickly. Luckily my Spanish is very good and I get along with the locals well. My host sister introduced me to all of her friends who took me in like I was born in Spain. I also got very lucky with my class in school. I have two other exchange students in my class, one from Lake Tahoe, California and the other from Northern Norway. I love my host family very much (a sister and a mother). I just got back from orientation yesterday and it was fantastic, there are about 25 or more inbounds, which is impressive compared to only 6 outbounds in 5970. I hope all is well.
