He was especially proud to see students push themselves out of their comfort zones.
“I enjoyed seeing the students challenging themselves to try all the different foods specially the snails, a very typical food during the spring time in Córdoba, and to speak the language.”
Indiya was one student who tried a snail! “It had an interesting taste. I also really enjoyed the fried octopus; it was my first time trying it and it was good!”
Dr. Andrusik credits Mr. Cuevas for “my new love of CHURROS. They eat churros for breakfast! I have no photos because I ate them ALL.”
Mostly, staff and students thank Mr. Cuevas for being “the most kind host, tour guide, chef, and artist we could have asked for,” as Dr. Andrusik put it.
“I hope the students were able to have a meaningful experience, to be exposed to how people live in other places, and maybe expanded their horizons a little bit more,” Mr. Cuevas reflected. “Maybe the trip even planted the seeds of studying abroad in the future, and to be able to think beyond the limitations of specific geographic location.”
