Before I left America I filled out a questionnaire about my preferences for a family to live with. I checked that I wanted to live with a family that had children. Instead I am placed in a home with just one mom. It is just me her. Her name is Rosa and I couldn't be happier with her. She is very particular, but extremely patient with me and understanding. She has been hosting students for 12 years. She talks slowly and repeats herself a lot until I finally understand, or at least say that I do! She washes my laundry every Thursday and cooks my meals, delicious although not always the healthiest. She talks a LOT! But I have learned to ask questions. It is extremely important especially when I do not understand what she is telling me. My host mom obviously knows a lot about Cordoba and I have learned to ask her questions about it. She always wants to tell me what she knows.
