But without the tremendous amount of down time I once knew back in September, I am exhausted. Which is why this weekend, given the choice to go out with others in town or stay at my site, I chose my site. This was a good decision because my family told me that day they were having a party to commemorate certain family members that have been lost recently. As an American, I am pretty accustomed to parties having copious amounts of alcohol. Also as Americans, our collective image of pre-TV/electricity is sitting around listening to news on the radio, or maybe singing around a piano like All in the Family's intro. Not at my house. We had the epicest of dance parties I have ever been a part of. I hope my life gets commemorated like this, it was AWESOME. I was a little shy at first, but once my song, "Lento" by Professor feat. Speedy, came on...it was all over. I will let the photos speak for themselves. Also, I would like to point out not every home stay here is like this. I happen to have been lucky enough to get a family that hosts 5 hour dance parties drinking nothing but water, couldn't have been a better match.
