So I am here. Finally where I will be for the next 3 months.  My home stay is literally within 20 feet of the community center.  When I arrived at the community center there were dozens of kids that immediately came up and asked my name.  I was only here for 10 minutes and they already remember my name and are calling me Ate Elsa.  I met my host family and they are very welcoming and friendly.  Right now I am at the community center using my host sister's computer, who works for the community center.  I have the afternoon to settle in and rest and then at 3 pm I will have my orientation.
On the plane ride here I couldn't sit still.  I was just so anxious to get here and now I am so excited to see what this summer has in store for me.  Tacloban City is beautiful so far from what I have seen.  I am going to go pack now, I'll try to write again tomorrow.

Re: Basically...
Yea pretty much everyone. All the staff and volunteers do. My host mother does but not as well as my host brother and sister.

Love you, Mom
