Thank you guys, I will never forget this amazing experience. I never really felt that I was thousands of miles away from home because I found home in Iowa. Every time I looked around I saw warmth and hospitality, my host family and friends made my journey unforgettable I cannot give enough thanks to the people that were there for me. I just want to say I am very happy to come and be able to discover a totally different world in the middle of Iowa. I wish this was a dream that I never had to wake up from but what makes this dream valuable is that it ends, what makes it precious is that it doesn’t last forever. I will take with me some of the best memories of my life.
