Closing Time

The semester is over! It doesn't seem possible that four months have flown by in the blink of an eye. We spent Friday at the director Ann's house and had all day to hang out with CGE staff and friends. It was a fun, relaxing - and slightly emotional - end to the semester. We had our closing ceremonies, ate incredible Mexican barbeque complete with nopales (grilled cactus), grilled chicken and beef, guacamole, rice, beans and even tres leches cake! Then we got to swim in the pool, the students worked on their last minute tans, and we got to hang out together as a group for the last time. 

To say that these students will be missed is a complete understatement. After living and eating and working and hanging out with them for four months, they have become some of my dearest friends. Here are some hilghlights from the semester:

Group pyramid - why not?
