14 hours of flight and 5 hours of transit wait in Dubai was very long and tiring. But apart from that, the flight was alright, nothing special. At first, I thought that we would be busy chatting away but it turned out to be a quiet journey because, if we all talked, it would be abit too noisy and since we were seated in a row, it was quite difficult to talk to each other.
|Cut my hair! :P|
|Elil, Emy and I|
|Chloe, Lee Chen, Karyee and YingJee!|
|Free meal from Dubai Airport!|
|Arrived safely in Dubai Airport!|
|Finally arrived at Frankfurt airport!|
As I sat there waiting for my turn to leave for my train which is at 3pm it's a really long wait ok, I was so silent, couldn't pick up the courage to talk to the rest cause they had trouble speaking in English. hah, it was then that I realized how important language is to communicate. Without a commonly shared language, it's like talking to someone but nothing goes through because they don't understand each other.
|Gathering place with the exchange students from Thailand.|
|Enjoying our YUMMY Muffin!|
|Huge yellow banana!|
|The group from Argentina. I have no idea what they are saying. =/|
|The four remaining ones that have yet to meet their host family.|
We were all feeling so dirty after not showering for almost a day and a half, we couldn't wait to just reach home and take a nice warm bath.
Anyway, so I'm now with my host family and I finally finished transferring all my stuff into my cupboard.
It's 7pm here and it's already dark. I'm feeling tired too from the jetlag.
I have one more thing to say before I go,
Communicating with my host family is so not as easy as I thought. Only my mama host mom speaks fairly good english, papa host dad and Alicia host sister doesn't speak much english. So yeah, I hope I learn my German soon!
The only word I understood during my whole bike trip with papa and Alicia was,
Alicia: papa, .... schnell.. something about, papa you're going to fast?
because I was cycling behind them. hehe.
They got me a bicycle, it's a bit of a classic one and the back brake is not on the handle so it's something that I have to learn to get used to. :)
Ok, I better go, will update more when I get the chance. (;
