I think I have made my case clear on why I love it here. End of that discussion.
Next, would I ever come back: No. Or more likely probably not. I feel I have a purpose here and in all truth I don’t know what I would do in the US. Whatever I’m doing here I’ll take me a lot of money, just to live in a farm (or maybe a family can help me out?) but even with help, it could be costly.
Then we have the ocean, I’ll have to live in Miami or the West Coast, both expensive cities and almost prohibitive to be near the water. And I will need a car remember? Cars are bad for my pockets and for my health. I have it all good here. No reason to leave, nope, not even for a boyfriend.
This takes me to the next topic: boys.
Would I get a boyfriend here? I haven’t tried that yet. For some reason I’m not attracted to the guys here, actually that’s not true, more like I don’t pay attention to the guys here. I’m here for a mission, to learn my greenies, and surf in the meantime. Now, don’t get me wrong, if someone comes along and we click, absolutely. But I’m not going out of my way to meet anybody here. There’s no rush. So there’s that.
About communicating, I said it before, it’s not really a big deal. Most people speak some English and besides that I don’t want to speak English, I want to practice my Spanish. People are also very forgiving here, they think we Americans look “cute” when trying to speak the language.
If I ever feel stuck I can “talk” to anyone here, they’d either switch to English or they’d help me with my Spanish or I’ll take out my phone and point at what I need. It’s sounds like a lot of work but it’s not I swear. And it makes it all way more interesting. I will be bilingual within five years, neat!
