Hey guys! I am typing this from Switzerland!!!! I was greeted by my host mother and sister in the Zurich airport at 8:30 am, after a VERY long plane ride (story is coming). At first, I didn't know where they were, and was so confused, because everyone was speaking German, which I know 2 words in. I eventually found them after finding a English speaking employee, who called Margrit, my host mom.
I was kind of worried that I wouldn't get along with my host family, since I have heard so many rumors about Swiss people being reserved and stern. Let me just tell you, my host family is not like that at all. They were both so sweet and friendly, and I felt very welcomed. My host sister actually spent year abroad in Toronto when she was 16, so she understands what I am feeling.
We then drove to my new house. This picture is for you mom and dad; look! I have a clean closet!
