First day of the course…
Oh boy, how to begin describing this day….
We got up a little late and went to breakfast. Not many choices… and their ketchup (for me at least) was quite spicy. Then we had the scavenger hunt… a bit of a waste of time. Very eye-opening, sometimes disturbing and a little scary and intimidating. But we managed. Went shopping for some traditional clothing. Pictures of that to follow.
Didn’t take any pictures today – didn’t need any help attracting attention to us foreign girls…but it’s all good.
Stomach still a bit upset – although not all the time. A little homesick – I guess because I’m definitely going through culture shock. Never had a problem being away from home but this first day has been a little difficult.
Tomorrow should be a bit better. We will be traveling in a big group (safety in numbers 🙂 and we won’t look too very lost because we will be with our guides…the professors.
Till tomorrow then,
