why yes I am a dinosour

As you all know, I am not the only exchange student in Huancayo right now, there are two kids from Thailand, a girl from Belgium, and my best friend, a girl from switzerland. Her name is Johanna and she is 20 years old. She is truely my best friend here, and she speaks english, so when I am upset I can talk to her without having to translate!
Anyways, I love to go and hang out at her house with her and her host brother, Charlie. Whenever I go to her house there are a few things that we always do. We always sit on her bed, we always listen to music, and we always always always eat junk food. It is so fun because we just lay there and talk about anything and everything. What we are feeling, school, families, friends, food, problems, or just any random stuff that we think of; like dinosours.
We were just sitting on her bed making shadow puppets on her wall, when one of them looked like a dinosour, which made me remember when I spent like two days walking around my house in the United States acting like a dinosour. So naturaly I wanted to tell them this story, one problem, neither johanna nor I knew the word for dinosour in spanish to tell Charlie. So what did we do, we used actions and sounds. I think that Charlie was laughing to much to relize what we were doing so it took him about five minutes to figure it out. Turns out that the word for dinosour in spanish is practically the same as in english.
My time at their house sitting on Johanna´s bed is probably some of my favorite time spent in Peru. Johanna is just so nice and a good listener and is always there for me whenever I need her. And Charlie is like my big brother, he is alwasy looking out for me and making sure that I am happy and that I am being safe and that any problems that I am having are being resolved (He is 21).
So there you go, two more important people in my life right now and an example to show that I am still just as crazy as when I left :)


PS- SOOOOOOOO sorry about the pictures, I am trying so hard to get them up, but I always run into problems!
