Introduction time again.
I've said it before and I will say it again - one of the nicest things about being here is meeting different people from all over the world and hearing their stories. I have introduced you to Jordanne and Damaris before but the chica in the middle - maybe not. Her name is Miha (short for something - can't remember what) and she originally from Romania. She was telling us the other night that her parents won the visa lottery when she was ten so they were able to immigrate to America. Damaris then told us about her Dad - when he was about 4, his parents were in Germany at the time (orginally from Poland) and they were in line to get on a boat to Australia - however the boat got filled up and there was no room left so they got on the next boat - which happened to be to the States. A twist that changed everything - who knows we could have met her in Australia if things had gone as planned for her grandparents. Quite intriguing to me those kind of things happening.
Back to Miha - she is leaving to go home in a few days so it has been very nice getting to know her. Chao Chica - bien viaje!
