Immersion, adventure and happiness are just a few words to describe the trip so far. However, it’s truly difficult to put my overwhelming emotions into words to explain my experience so far. Forming such a close relationship with everyone on the trip was a pleasant surprise. We quickly became a family without any reservations or judgements. From walking miles in DC, to making rap songs in the van in Brasilia, we’ve all grown close, understanding each others personalities in such a short time. Not to mention seeing the most beautiful areas and meeting the nicest people.
