Dear Parents, Family and Friends:
It's hard to believe that our time here in beautiful León has almost ended and at this time next week, we will already be on the bus to Madrid. Within our grupos de apoyo (support groups) we will be talking about the possibility of experiencing a bit of "reverse culture shock" and our feelings about the trip back, but we would encourage all of you in your pre-return contact (emails, messaging, Skype, etc.) to try and make sure that the students feel informed about what has been going on during their absence. Apart from missing people back home, several students have commented that they feel very much "out of the loop" in regards to both family and local happenings - stuff they'd like to know before they read about it on Facebook.
Within the next few days, I will be posting some more pictures from our last days on site (the pics from Madrid and Toledo will go up post-arrival in the States) and also confirming student pick-up information for Chicago. Take good care and we will see you soon!
