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.
