A Unique Internship
This Internship is What you Make of It
I have arrived and survived my first 3 weeks in my internship at Fundación Aliados. My daily life here has changed so dramatically from my life at home and my knowledge has grown so much that it’s hard to know where to begin, so I made a list:

By Phoebe Wraith

Like the wild weather rhythms, the days are filled with unpredictability, forcing its people to adapt to the unexpected. It is a more present way of being. They seize the joyful moments of sunshine, and enjoy a moment of rest when the rain unfolds. Everything goes, life is ‘tranquila’ here and its people radiate with contentment.
