After dinner, Cristina, my host mother, brought out a journal for us to look through. In the journal were writings from all of the students who have lived with Marco and her in past years. They dated back to 1991! Although most were written in Italian, the few that we could read spoke wonders of Cristina and Marco and their host family experience. The students came from all over the states as well as a few other countries. Cristina says she still keeps in touch with many of the students she has gotten to know over the years. It so incredible so read how this family had touched so many students’ lives. Students just like me.
The journal was very touching and I look forward to writing a lovely note in it at the end of my homestay. It was a lovely way to end an enjoyable dinner and another great day in
