I hope I can come back to San Diego again soon! Andrea's family was so wonderful in making me feel comfortable, included, and at home in the U.S.! They were so helpful when I needed it and I couldn't have asked for a better homestay. Wishing them the best from Japan!
This family is fantastic and I had a wonderful experience! I spent 2 months with Lucia, Andrea, Alessandra and Sara and I felt like I was at home. I want to thank you very much for welcoming me and for your kindness. I hope to see you again in San Diego or in Italy.
