I am in America right now and everything is fine but my flight was the worst I have ever had! The first 6 hours went good! I sat nexto two really nice girls of my organisation and we talked about our familys and stuff like that. An hour before New York the pilot told us that we have to fligh around a storm. I thought we would be there in 2 hours but the flighttime kept going higher. When we were 20 minutes away from our airport the pilot did a second announcement. The runway was too short for our airplane. It was wet so it had to be longer. After a while he told us that we are allowed to land at JFK-airport. There we had to wait 4 long ours. The law didn´t allow us to board. The airspace was closed for every airplane for about 3 hours. The crew had contact to the airports in Washington, Philadelphia, New York and Frankfurt. The one in Philadelphia was closed so we had two options…Either flying to Washington and not being sure although we are allowed to board or waiting longer and flying to our actuall airport. The crew decided to fly to the one in New York. After they told us this we had to wait an other hour until we departured finally.
When we land in New York City we were all really happy. We passed the passport control and went to our hostel.
sorry guys! I wasn´t able to log in since today so I wasn´t able to post anything. I am going to write some more things the next days…
If you didn´t know yet I am going to go to Des Moines the capital of Iowa. I am going to live in a hostfamily. It is a typical family of four with two dogs. I am already texting with them via WhatsApp and had a phonecall and a skypeconference. They seem to be very nice and open to new things. They already had 4 exchangestudents so it´s nothing new to them. But they are still really excited to see me. They bought me some things so I feel comfortable when I am in the USA. I got my own comforter set and curtains. But bevor I see them I am going to fly to New York with other exchangestudents of my organisation. We stay there for 5 or 6 days and then everybody flys to. There are only 21 days left until I leave germany so at the moment I am thinking about presents for my lovely hostamily and about what I am going to take with me and what not.
This is my blog for the next year. I am going to write in english because I want to speak this language the next year. I will write about my exchange and the stuff I am doing in the USA. I do this blog because I have to write this just one time and everybody can read it.
