I am a little more comfortable now after being here for a few days. It is still weird not having anyone around, to say I love you when I go to bed, or to yell at me for doing something wrong. I miss home very much and hope that this exchange goes by quick so that I can be at home again.
Yesterday I went to a city called Troyes, which is about an hour away from where I am living. We went to help Willy (my host brother) unpack his apartment for university. While in Troyes we walked around, going to the little shops. There were cafe’s everywhere, which made it feel very French. Troyes is a very old French town and is primarily made out of wood. It is a very beautiful town. Here are a few of the pictures that I took yesterday.
Today I walked around the town of Esternay, looking in the little shops and at the bakery. On Monday I will be picking up my books for school, which stars on Wednesday. I am excited so that I have something to do during the day, to keep my mind off of home. I am disappointed that there will be no other exchange students at my school. I hope that I make many friends, so that I can have people to talk to and hang out with.
Tonight myself and my host family will be attending a Rotary meeting, where I will meet my next host family! I hope that the next few weeks go by very fast as they are supposed to be the worst!
I will talk soon. Love always,
