A bit about Richmond, VA

Hello y’all!

 

I guess it’s time for me to write something here and I’m not exactly proud of the fact that now, after eight weeks in the United States of America, I finally made time for the blog, but hey, better late than never, right?

 

So, let me tell you a bit about my adventure here.

 

I am truly happy to tell you that my host-family is being very nice to me – it is always funny when I have to explain how am I getting along with them – it just happened! It’s unbelievable – they opened up their hearts for another daughter/ sister and I am glad to say that I love the time spent with them. I have the cutest little brother and sister possible so it is a great fun.

 

Also, school started five weeks ago and, after the initial shock the first two of them, now I am getting comfortable with the environment. It is so much different from what I’m used to – the people, the teaching methods, the schedule (I had a hard time comprehending how the rotation of A Weeks, B Weeks and C Weeks works, but now all is good!), the very way you feel on campus. I am so thankful for being placed in that particular place – it really is the perfect match for me. Tomorrow, in fact, I am going on a fieldtrip to a performance in the Richmond Ballet and I’m super excited!

 

In addition to my first short post (from now on I’ll try to be consistent, although I can’t promise anything – time just flies faster here!), I would say that with the beginning of the fall and the absence of the humidity here, in Virginia (Richmond at least 😀 ), I feel way better and I am ready to see what this great adventure will offer me, without gasping for air every time I go out!

 

Greetings from me, I hope everyone is enjoying their year in the States!
