Arrived Safe and Sound

Hola, amigos! I have landed safely in Paraguay and am spending my first night with my host family. They live in a large home in the country and have an active farm. We have ducks meandering through the kitchen, baby chicks being warmed in a towel next to a boiling pot on the stove, cows and chickens out the backdoor and animals of every type in every direction. Host mom runs a couple businesses out of the house and it seems perhaps extended family lives here too though I´m not yet sure. Tonight my family invited me to watched while host Dad killed a rooster for a wedding tomorrow in Ascuncion, which I´m invited to. They´ve been incredibly patient with my remedial Spanish and even more elementary guarani, the native tongue which everyone in Paraguay speaks. My guarani language classes are being taught by Spanish speaking teachers so it gets very interesting. All good. My classmates are an amazing group of individuals, nearly all of whom are under 25 but have traveled the globe extensively providing for great storytelling.
Gotta go!
