So I stayed in US during my Christmas break. My sister came over from Poland to visit me. We stayed couple days in Chicago , then came back to Purdue and after that went on a trip to NYC. We spent the Christmas day in my apartment on campus, I had my Brazilian friend staying over and my American roommate, so we had an international dinner 🙂 It was a big relief after waiting for the final results. Yes, the first semester ends before Christmas break, as well as the final exams. Luckily, I passed everything 🙂
It was an amazing experience, cos we used Couchsurfing everywhere we stayed. I highly recommend that way of traveling. We met local people who show us not only the tourist areas and attractions. 🙂 We stayed in Brooklyn. Visited most of the districts in Manhattan. My favorite one is Little Italy, all these Italian restaurants are just adorable. You can really feel like you moved to the Godfather movie.
New semester at Purdue started very rapidly, I didn’t even notice when. The only thing that I can complain about is the weather – it’s SO COLD in here! All the time around -15 degrees and the snow. I have enough…and the spring should come hmmm in April! That’s why I can’t wait for the spring break to go to some warm places.
