It is March and I can say that I have a real life here now. A great family, real friends, hobbies and lots of fun. My Spanish is so good now that I just talk and don't have to think about every other word. Of course it is not flawless, but that is not a problem. Then sometimes I even put a grin on the faces of the Ecuadorians. I know that it is not meant badly. Honestly I never thought I would feel and think like I do now. My life here is pretty perfect at the moment. I haven't been homesick for ages either. The last time I think during Christmas and New Year's Eve. I'm going to start telling you about that too.
Highs and lows
Christmas was the saddest time for me here in Ecuador. I love the Christmas time in Germany. That was simply the reason why I was not so happy here during this time. It was different. Just not Christmas at all as I know it. At that time I had wished that it would just drop out like some friends because the families have different beliefs. But now that it's all over, I'm glad to have been there.
