First few days

I arrived late Sunday night and had the opportunity to see a little volcanic activity. El Fuego volcano is across the way from my host family´s house and there was a beautiful lava show. It´s been spitting and smoking for the last few nights. No one here is nervous, so I won´t worry about it either. I spent the first few days settling in and getting to know my host family. They are very helpful and friendly.

My internship placement started yesterday and should be interesting. I´m working with a small hotel on their marketing. They don´t have an internet presence so we´ll be working on a website, Facebook page, etc. An interesting tidbit…with the income they generate, they rescue street dogs and cats. They gave me a laptop to use for the project and my office is the back garden…not too bad.
