I landed safely at the Frankfurt airport this morning and things haven't really slowed down since. I was able to call Anna from the airport around 9:00 AM German time using Brian David's iPhone (just a little plug for Apple :P), which means she stayed up until 3:00 AM her time waiting for me. BEST GIRLFRIEND EVER!!! We hung around in the airport until the bus came to pick us up. I pretty much slept on the bus ride from Frankfurt to Metz, but my family will be the first to tell you that that isn't a big surprise. I always fall asleep whenever the opportunity presents itself.
The GTL campus is pretty cool. There's one main building for classes and then there are 3 dorms for the students. Most of us live in LaFayette, which is where I am as well. The view from my room is awesome! I live right next to a huge field full of wheat and yellow flowers. I spent most of the day moving into my room and getting everything organized. I also took a trip with Scott to Cora, the local grocery store. It was a fun experience trying to find what we needed to buy when we had no clue what the signs meant! We eventually found what we were looking for, but I'll need to go back again soon for more stuff. I made my first international purchase. Using my credit card here was just as easy as back home. They make sure it's easy to spend your money.
things. The Eurail system is quite intimidating.
