My project exceeded my every expectation - this was without a doubt the single greatest experience of my life! I was ‘over-appreciated’ in many ways! My host family made me feel so at home from the moment I got there. I feel like they were constantly putting me FIRST. I was there hoping to meet THEIR needs and yet all they could concern themselves with was my level of comfort. I was overwhelmed by their kindness... The accommodation was excellent - VERY VERY CLEAN - (they sweep the dirt driveway every day and the sink is so clean you can see your reflection in it!). I left my sneakers outside one night and found them outside my bedroom door the next morning perfectly cleaned and polished. The food was delish and again they are very sanitary in their preparations and clean up. I can’t say enough about the host family - never in my life have I met such wonderful welcoming people! More people need to have this kind of experience in life!! Thanks for EVERYTHING!
