As I waited on my train to arrive, I looked around and cherished the beauty of Esbjerg. I sat down on a bench, and across from me were buildings that were nothing like home. The sky was clear blue, and it was chilly. People were walking, riding bikes and smiling at one another. I was surrounded by the smell of hot chocolate, and bakeries. (idk how to type that, thing is it smelled warm, and good) My point is, at that moment I realized that I was falling in love with the country. I was falling in love with the weather, the people, bakeries, the sound of trains, and how peaceful this city is. I was falling in love with the fact that Denmark was becoming my home, and I didn't like the fact that I was going to leave it sometime. I'm soo happy here, and I really don't want to go home.
For those who are wondering about what I've done, I been pretty busy. I'm moved in with a new family and I have gotten so attached to them. You know that feeling where like you would prefer spending the holidays with your actual family? Well, for me I really don't mind not spending the holidays with my actual family. The family I'm with now truly done an impact on me, and I'm really looking forward to spending it with them. I'm truly blessed, and beyong grateful to of been hosted by them. I have a mom and dad, and 2 younger sisters. Along in the house lives my host dads brother, and his mother.
Two weekends ago, I went to Lubeck, Germany for 3 days. My family, and my host dads great grandparents took a trip. We stayed at this really cute camping cabin. We left on a Friday afternoon and arrived around 20:30 p.m (8:30) When we arrived, we settled, unpacked and ate dinner. We ate open sandwiches, and tartelletters. Since we arrived pretty late, and it was a 5 hour drive we just stayed in and rested the rest of the night. The following morning, we woke up early, and walked around the city. Let me tell you, GERMANY WAS SO FREAKING COLD! Like just by being outside for like 5 minutes my face felt so numb, and I felt like my nose was going to fall of. It was immensely cold. We were out all day, and ate dinner at this nice restaurant and then went home. We had to be out Sunday morning, so we woke up early again and left. Anyways, to conclude this paragraph, I'll conclude with Germany is beautiful, and I'm planning to come back again. It was a really good weekend, and I enjoyed every second of it. Even the feeling of having that feeling of your nose falling off lol.
My danish is okay, it's not to bad and it's not to good. I have a really hard time pronouncing the vowels and all the o sounds. School is pretty good. I've made friends, both in my class and others who are in a different grade. I have gotten close to my Danish, English and Spanish teachers. I've talked to my others teachers, but were not as close as I am to my language teachers. Have I mentioned, I joined the school band? Yet, I cannot sing nor play an instrument, but that's okay... its fun.
Also, I love being a Mexican/American. I've done a couple presentations about Mexico and the United States, and how a life of a Hispanic is under Trump. Its quite interesting, and I really like how Danes are very aware about some of the situations that go around in the States. My favorite part about this all is being able to expand my cultural! Gosh, I just love everything right now. Anyways, I think that's all for now. Vi ses min venner!
