Sept 24th 2011

So from right when I got off the plane its been a non stop adventure, its been so busy I forgot to write on my blog. Anyways, right when after my long flight I arrived in Luxembourg at 10:05 Am on the 24th of August. I was welcomed by a big group of rotary members from my district! 3 other kids from Taiwan were there before me; after the arrival of 2 other students after me (one from the U.S. and the other from Bolivia) they took us to the camp. Once everyone arrived I made friends with the other Canadian, Kaitlyn (she is from Ontario), 2 from the states, Jennifer and Dane (Dane is actually Canadian but lives in the states), and Roger who is from Bolivia. Later on during the camp we added a girl named Emilie to the group of our new close group of friends. During the camp we went sailing, mini golfing, biking, swimming, and learned a little bit of French. It was fun and I really enjoyed myself!

On the 5th of September was my first day of school, on my first day it was really confusing and I was really confused, but I still had a good day. Ive made a good group of friends! One day my class mates signed me up for me to play on the class team in the school competition and they told me the day before. They wanted to sign me up because we played in sport class and they think I'm good :P. The girls in France are a lot less athletic that in Canada, but are so petit, i feel really tall here. Anyways yesterday me and 2 of my friends were watching a sport class play handball outside in the courtyard and we were laughing cause the girls were really bad and could neither catch nor throw the ball. 

I feel like my French has really improved since I first got here, its really cool feeling. One day it feels like I know nothing and then the next I know a ton its weird cause I learn so much in a day.  

Today I'm going to watch a Rugby game with some of the girls that go to my school that live in Vittel. I forgot to mention that I take the train to and from school everyday and it takes about 20 minutes each way, there are only 600 kids in my school. 

Next week I will be away to the Vogue mountains for a meeting with the kids in my district, I'm really excited to see everyone again! 

I think the thing I miss the most is the Canadian food, I also miss being surrounded by different cultures. In France its just french people (no duh) but I miss eating Indian food, or Italian, or what not! 

a bientôt
