Today, finally Friday, was basically a day of nothing at school. The only fun thing that happened was that I ate lunch with my friends from B, which I’ve done a few times now, and I felt really accepted by all of them and we had a great time. They are the kind of people that I miss from the US—the kind that are always willing to go out and do something and not too lazy to be bothered to do lame and stupid stuff. After school I went home and Skyped with my dad for the first time in like 3 months. It was really great to talk to him, and just hearing him talk about going to Mexico got be really excited to go. I want to go out to the clubs that I’ve heard him talk about for like 10 years and meet his friends and be able to make my own friends down there. I feel like now that I actually speak Spanish, Mexico will become a whole new and awesome place for me. Around 5:30, I changed out of my uniform and walked over to the Jumbo to meet Mariana and Stefano. We took a micro into Machali to find this all you can eat sushi restaurant that Mariana knew about. Except then they got confused on the micro and we ended up getting off on the side of the main road and walking like 20 minutes one way and then asking directions and having to turn around and walk back the other way but after a very long adventure we finally ended up at the sushi restaurant. We ate and talked and laughed until our stomachs hurt (probably hurt from the mass quantity of sushi we consumed).
