I am finally home from Uruguay, and I feel like I am going through another culture shock within my own country. My time there was only 8 weeks, but it was an amazing life experience. I will never forget its people and its beauty. I wasn’t sure how Uruguay has impacted me until I left. Now, I feel like I value my alone time. In Uruguay, it’s important for people to creates time for themselves during the day. Sometimes this can be hard for me when it seems like I have 100 things to do for school, but now I make more time for myself to relax.
