Paloma came and knock on my door. I saw her sincere smile – she hugged me several times, kissed on both cheeks(although am still not quite used to this European customer) and told me ” have a good trip. This is always your home in Spain, in Madrid.” that really meant a lot to me. I loved my stay – it was quite independent yet very convenient. The food was not superb but definitely Paloma made an effort to make us happy with the food. I also got to know a kind German boy and two very nice Italian girls (18 years old) and we clicked instantly. I also learned how to help students who are new to a family because a Brazilean girl helped me on my first day to show me around and include me to their excursions.
