After getting lost and making a couple of U-turns, I was the first to arrive. I was confused about why there was a sign that said Louisiana Fried Chicken and was not sure whether or not my GPS took me to the right place. Once I saw a small sign that said Oralia’s Kitchen I knew I was in the right place.
I knew Jenny was the right person from the first time she mentioned pupusas. In the future I see us having more food in common which is a big plus.

I got the chance to talk to Alicia one-on-one and all her information was extremely helpful. We talked about the campus, the food, the dorms, and the clothing I should pack. She also talked about how this program changed her views on the role of woman in the 21st century.
Like I imagined the cheese pupusas were delicious, they were so good that I didn't have time to take a picture. The orchata was also as great, of course I realized this when I went to get a refill.

This dinner got me more exited to go to our dinner in San Francisco and spent more time with the girls. I am so excited to be a part of this group of fun and interesting girls and can’t wait to spend the summer with them.

I want to thank Don for allowing us a time to meet are chaperon and get to know her before we go across the United States together also allowing us the time to get to know the other girls in our group. The cherry on top was talking to Alicia who had done the same program last summer.
