On Thursday of last week a few friends and I went to a small bar near campus that was having an event called Where's Your Father (or Who's Your Father... I can't remember which), either way, it was so much fun! I met so many people and had a really good time!
Friday morning came and I woke up early to go to class, went to my second one and about twenty minutes into it I realized I was in an engineering class! Pretty embarrassing that I was in the wrong one, but I am thankful to not be an engineer!!! I found out the time was listed wrong on our website so I had to wait a few hours for my next class!
Friday night, we left for our homestay visit in WALES! The bus ride took way longer than anticipated but was so worth it! 4 of us girls stayed in a little "bungalo" as they call it with a Grandma and a Grandpa named Julie and Andy! The first night Julie made us homemade hot chocolate and got us all settled into our bunk beds! I think all of us girls were a little too excited to be on a little vacation because we stayed up all night chatting! Oops!
Saturday morning Andy brought us into the city so that we could go on a day tour of Swansea and Julie made us bagged lunches! It was so nice of them to take such good care of us!
The first stop on the tour was Mumbles. There was a beautiful little beach with a pier and a LIGHTHOUSE! We had fun running around there taking pictures of the water and got some hot chocolate in the cafe! Next the bus took us to Rhossili which was SOOOO BEAUTIFUL! There was a huge beach and cliffs over looking the Irish Sea. We ran around the cliffs getting great pictures and chasing heards of sheep! It was so much fun, but very chilly so we only stayed there for about 45 minutes. That would be one great place to visit in the summer time!
After that we were brought back into town and did a little shopping! The stores were really fun to go into and the market was great! We tried Welsh Cakes (which is like a thicker pancake with sugar on it) and Crackles (which is some type of seafood... I don't like seafood so I stayed far away from that thing!) That night we went back and had some Lasagna and played with Julie and Andy's 18 month old grandaughter! We were all pretty tired so we went to bed early! The next day we had a long drive back to London!
We have a friend from Wales that taught us some Welsh, but all I can remember is;
Nos Da = Goodnight
Lots of Love From London!!!!!!!!
