First off, I need to share my exciting news with all of you....I thought Skye was just for video calls and you had to have an Internet connection. I wasn't using it because it's hard enough having four people in one apartment with only one ethernet and I'm the only one with a working phone. I found out that I can pay $4.99 and have unlimited calls to the states for the next month! So I got myself a "skype to go number" and I can talk to my family, friends & most importantly my boyfriend because him and I have been racking up some ridiculous charges at $1.99 a minute. I'm so glad to be connected again without it being so expensive!!!
I'm updating again today because I didn't write anything yesterday...we got back late and I fell asleep pretty quickly. So this is my way of catching up.
Hersheypark and Chocolate World back home. I bought a t-shirt for myself and gifts for friends & family….not saying what because some of them are reading this, it’s a surprise that they’ll just have to wait and see! On the top floor we were given a complimentary pint of Guinness. I asked for a "jacket" because I saw other people being handed things in the shape of rugby jackets. The bartender proceeded to laugh at me, but I got him back. When he came around to take our glasses I realized how tall he was (6'8!!!) and made him get a picture with me...it was nice to joke around with a free beer and I always enjoy meeting new people.
We were supposed to go to the Laughter Lounge, a comedy show, but I guess the joke was on me....they thought I was 16, I didn't have id because I haven't been carded since I got here, so we couldn't get in. I know the teachers are going to be disappointed to read this, but since it was cheap and nearby, we went to the classiest McDonald's I've ever seen. They had a case full of fancy desserts near the entrance, people who took your trays when you were finished eating, curly fries that were much better then the McDonald's back home, and two floors of seating that were full.
I'm in for the night knowing I can catch up with those back home inexpensively and looking forward to going to our new hotel tomorrow....I want to see the country side with cute little houses and beautiful architecture.
We Have A New Place to Call Home!
