Crazy couple weeks…
Moved into a new host family. I will spare you the details of that hott mess in this post, but I can email you the story if you would like.
The new host family is amazing!! Its a full house with lots going on, but it makes me feel at home. Rosa, my host mom, is very sweet. The host dad is very welcoming and full of energy. Madina, my host sister, is a baller on the vball court. And Asem the aunt is a rockstar cook. She has two little boys that are terrors most of the time, but fun to have around.
Random Story….Day one running on frozen snow: I am an idiot. I basically ice-skated my way through the snow. And although it was sunny outside it was freezing. I stopped at a store and picked up a sprite to deliver to Abby. I was a sprite commercial, running through the snow with a sprite in hand. By the time I got to Abby’s the sprite went from room temperature to pleasantly cold.
1st Kazakh Wedding… Very interesting, lots of food, dancing, and fun to be had. My director and I even slow danced together. Most awkward moment in Kaz thus far : )
1st Kazakh Thanksgiving… My host family had friends and family over for dinner. So when I explained that in the US we celebrate Thanksgiving with lots of food, family/friends, and giving thanks they were a bit confused. Thats because it is part of their culture to have guests rather often, eat lots of food, and everyone is required to make a toast. Its was a great experience.
Sorry for this speedy…rather random post. I just got wireless in my room!!!! So Skyping and fun to be had ..ya!
Off to a teachers field day competition thing?? Than to volleyball practice…Wish me luck : )
