Decent Essays
Like every other morning, my day started off very early because the girls and I have been going to breakfast before heading to ABSS. We went through the usual breakfast line, which was serving once again beans, eggs and tortillas. We have all grown used to this breakfast we have all found that it is rather delicious in the morning. We also find that we are still stared at a lot by all of the Zamorano students and cafeteria workers. I stop and wonder are they ever going to stop staring? I find myself thinking that no as long as we are here they will always stare at us. We make our way to the school by taking the usual path, the path that we took while on tour the very first day.

They also mentioned all the rules they have to abide by while on the university campus. I found it incredibly fascinating the amount of time the students spend on school grounds. I was also surprised by how strict the school is
