Woohoo! It’s the holidays! No school for two weeks, but because both of my host-parents still have to work and most of my friends have part-time jobs for the next two weeks, I have been meeting up with other exchange students from the general vicinity. I have probably walked over 25 miles in the past week just because every day we meet in Hannover, or the central area of Hameln, where we then walk, and walk, and walk. All day. We all come from completely different cultures, so we ALWAYS have something to talk about.
1)Hannover is gorgeous.
2) Chocolate is extremely cheap. And extremely delicious. I will definitely miss all the varieties when I go back to California next year.
I like meeting at the mall and just walking around(my friends here do this seemingly everyday after school)because it’s how I would spend days with my Californian friends. It’s nice to find small similarities between all the differences.
Also, yesterday, it randomly started hailing harder and faster than I have ever seen before, and hours after it stopped, ice chunks were still on the ground. I’m going to be in for a rude awakening this winter.
P.S. I stand by my previous statement that (in my mind) Germany is infamous for really creepy statues.)
