Today has been a longggggg day. Not sure how many hours I’ve been awake. Since 8am January 10th in CA, and now its 7:30 pm in Bonn January 11. So I guess that is just 25 hours?
Anyway, I flew out of SFO at 1:45pm. On the flight I read an entire book from start to finish. My first kindle book…The Hunger Games. I really liked it, apparently. There were a few other LMU students on the flight which was really nice.
We arrived in Frankfurt, Germany at 9:20am January 11. From there we took a bus to Bonn where we were dropped off at the AIB (the people & building where we will be getting assistance while in Germany). My host father was the first to arrive. We took the subway to Tannenbusch where I live for the next 4 months. Its not too long of a ride! It’s really nice because there is public transit at all hours of the day. Jurgen, my host father, made chai tea and we had 2 cups together while we got to know each other. I showered, unpacked, and got some help with getting the internet working.
I just had my first dinner. First was the bread, caprissi, salad, and white wine (which I was told is usually red, but not tonight). I thought this was everything but then pasta with meat sauce came out next. Then some sort of sweet yogurt that was delicious-I am hoping I don’t get a stomach ache from it.
I hope to do some Skyping tonight and then finally get some sleep.
Tomorrow will wear me out I’m sure.
