Aug '09 - Dec '09
I will keep this short because I am paying for my internet in a hostel and it's easier/more fun.
-Got here 1 week ago
-Weather is hot, but the Swiss are very excited about it. This is just another hot, sweaty day in Tennessee.
-I'm living in a hostel right now, which is expensive and difficult because I can't unpack
-My first night here I almost gave a dying man CPR outside a McDonalds at 5am. It was scary, but felt good to know I didn't freeze up)
-Housing is very difficult to find. People with open rooms have these open-houses and everyone (10-30 people) meets and greets, then several days later the flatmates choose who they liked the best. It's like reality TV.
-My language course starts this monday. (Ich spreche nur ein bischen Deutsch.)
-Architecture classes start in September
-There are only two studios in English, can't remember them off the top of my head. Next post....
-Bikes are expensive, but everywhere! It's wonderful. I might purchase one this weekend.
-I'll post photos/sketches/media whenever I unpack the bag with cables in it.
