Week number 5 extension week 1
This is the week I should have been back in the USA but I decided to stay and here I am an extra two weeks in Antigua and up at the school which is awesome so I get more time to spend with the kids and I get to stay with Christina in here house which is cool too so not much upheaval to do so. Had a lot of new interns this week and they seem lovely girls and they've all started up at the school and I get help from Weisa who will take over from me when I eventually leave. Just having an extra pair of hands is great although I've only got a small group compared to the others. It's also a bit of a sad week as it's the last week of Chelsea and my roomy Joelle so it'll be a tough week and very emotional too. On the plus side am going on a bug trip up another Volcano this week and camping out on the Volcano which will be amazing. Woo hoo can't wait!! Rest of the blog to come at the end of the week.
Okay so too much stuff has occured since Tuesday, first off got hit by the dreaded bug that has flown around the school and was sick for 2 days which meant I missed the last day of Joelle and Chelsea up at the school which has seriously pissed me off and I've also had to cancel the Volcano trip which I'm doubly pissed off about. I swear I will return to do that trip. I managed to get out for Joelle's b'day night and ate 2 pizza crusts and a whole bottle of water. Talk about a hardcore night but as I hadn't eaten anything and not being able to drink water it was pretty good!! Saturday continued to do my tourist trail and take pictures of some of the hotspots in Antigua including the market and Calle de Arco or Arch St which is what is in the picture. Saturday went out to Rainbow cafe and had to say a big big big goodbye to Joelle b4 she went off to Honduras and it sucked!! I'll miss that young lady a lot. Afterwards went off with Hannah, Sarah and Erin and ended up in a so called Irish bar, manged a beer and had a laugh with a crazy Guatemalan lady before we were kicked out at closing time at 1am. Sunady was the usual lazy day, breakfast at Bagel Barn, Internet, souvenir hunting and a trip to the nicest McDonald's in the world which you would walk past and not even realize it's a McDonalds. Ended the weekend with some yummy food from Rainbow and lesson planning for the last weekend. Not looking forward to it!!
