Putting my belongings in 2 1/2 suitcases this week, hopefully they make it to my new home with me. I fly out Wednesday, August 11, starting in Chicago and winding my way to Vienna, where I will be living. My host-family consists of three people, Kathrin (host-mother), Lionel (host-brother who is my age), and Vanilla (host-sister who will actually be in the U.S. during my exchange). They live in a flat near downtown Vienna, apparently a historic section. A few days after I arrive I will be attending a two week language camp, then school begins in early September. So stay tuned, the adventure begins soon.
