We checked with the lawyer for the professional basketball team here because I won't get my papers until a week after I have been here for three months, and he said "no pasa nada"which basically means it's all good. He said as long as the process has started now (which it has) we are okay.
I have been here for 6 weeks now and I understand A LOT more of what people say now. However, I still find it difficult to piece together a proper sentence. But my Spanish class starts tomorrow so that should help, and I still study every morning with my friend.
What an INTENSE six weeks this has been.
