Christmas

Culture Day 🇩🇪🇨🇦

On Friday, November 20th it was Culture day at my school (ycmhs). All the internationals had to make a presentation cardboard about their country and some typical/traditional food.
For example, Italy made spaghetti carbonara and Italien coffee, Mexico made Tacos, Belgium made Waffles and two other germans and I made german lebkuchen/gingerbread.
We also had to write down two questions (and answers) about our country. These questions were than printed on a worksheet that the classes that came to the culture day had to fill out.
All in all about fifteen different countries were represented. These are some of them:

Thanksgiving

On the long thanksgiving weekend we went camping with some friends of my host parents and their kids.
These weekend at the camp mostly consist of sitting around a bonfire till late at night, barbecue, playing bottle tag in the woods with all the kids or card games in our trailers, going swimming, playing washers (and losing every time) or just watching movies with the kids squeezed in one trailer.

On sundays you can skate one hour at the mariners Centre for free so a lot of internationals go there every week.
