Great news everyone! We are not sleeping in the airport. Although I was a it perturbed when my mom called me at 8am when I planned on another hour to snooze, I was glad she called because she had awesome news. Her and my dad decided that to help make our trip come to a better end then our night of sleeping in the airport, they wanted to get us a shuttle from our apartment to the airport the morning of our flight. After a bit of RESEARCH we found a place and booked the shuttle. This means no sleeping in the cold airport, no arriving 14 hours before our flight, and no Lyman holding us captive telling us about our research paper (although I'm sure we'll get it at some point). I think this will be a more satisfying end to the great trip I have had so far. I am so thankful for getting to go on this trip and getting the international experience while learning so much.
Tonight is my last night at work, it is sad to leave the people I work side by side with through the cold and rain, but I am sure we will keep in touch. It has been a great experience communicating with people about their lives, their experiences and their views on many things including the Olympics. One guy that worked here has worked at seven Olympics now! It has been such a great learning experience, I am so glad I was able to come.
I want to say thank you to my classmates and Linda, I have had a great time and it wouldn't have been the same without you all. Thank you to everyone who helped me get here in any way, shape or form, and to the many who contributed to my warmth with all of my Christmas and birthday gifts. Thank you to those who have read my blog during my trip especially Mrs. Perata's and Mrs. Gorman's classrooms and Grandma Jay and her coffee friends! I have connections, I know who is reading! To those of you at home reading, I'm coming home, see you in a couple of days! Take care everyone, and thanks again.
Look for a post when I am back in the states,
