hello all! not such a long post tonight because i'm super tired..busy busy day! but i did a lot today! this morning i got up earlier than i do for school (and its saturday..odd) because i went to a random town for a rotary meeting thing. all the inbounds, future outbounds and their parents and stuff got together for a sort of preparation/rule reading day..which was sort of boring because we did the same thing in august or september when we got here. in our district there are three new inbounds..all of which come from the southern hemisphere since their seasons and thus school year is at a different time, some end up coming in the middle of the year. (or leaving in the middle of their school year to arrive at the correct time for the northern hemisphere's school year..yeah its complicated). but after that we ate lunch at the meeting then went to Hasselt! it is a neat city. clean and quaint, but not quaint in the sense that you can feel how small it is..more quaint like, cozy. i spent a few hours there with other exchange students walking around, shopping and whatnot..i only spent 2 euro on a flower pin!
then i met my host family at a really cool pancake/waffle/coffee/ice cream place and manuella and i split what is in this awesome picture...SO GOOD!
