Just arrived! After eight months of preparation, uncertainty and a thrill of anticipation I’m on the flight to Richmond. On the 1st September, after 17 hours of flying and waiting I’m finally there. America, what a feeling!
I can stay at Ed’s place. He and Johannes, who is also living with us, pick me up from the airport and together we get to Ed’s house in Ashland. Exhausted from flying so long I look forward to a nice and warm bed.
I wake up fit and motivated for the upcoming time on sunday. As it is labour day weekend Johannes and Claudia decided to go to Virginia Beach and take me with them. It has over 30°C, perfect weather to go take a bath in the Atlantic Ocean. Not only the sea but also the American Music Festival is awaiting us.
After a very exciting first weekend in the states and a 12 oz steak we come back to Ashland. Exhausted and anxious about my first day at work I fall asleep instantly.
