Kara and host momAfter a brief meeting (in Spanish) with the faculty director, Dr. Mary Docter, the sixteen students were taken to their new homes. They spent their first weekend getting acquainted with their host family, their neighborhood, and the Mexican bus system. Sunday afternoon we all came together for our welcome party and comida with the host families, and on Monday we enjoyed an orientation and tour of the univeristy (the Instituto Tecnológico de Querétaro) and the Centro Intercultural de Querétaro (CIQ), where students will attend classes.
