Ian: "1. I performed the examination to assess the appropriate level prior to going to the school but for some reason this was never passed on to the teachers. Fortunately I had a printed copy with me so this was corrected reasonably quickly. 2. The school arranged a walking tour of the city centre but I felt could have offered more help and information regarding tours of the surrounding region, particularly the Sierra Gorda. Local tour companies would not take reservations for one person and it might have been helpful to know if other students would have been interested in taking this kind of tours."
