1st day

Friday, January 8th, 2010
I am in Scotland! The traveling went smoothly. There were no problems and no delays. People who went through London had flight delays and cancelations because of the snow and London is not used to snow. It sounded terrible. Luckily I went to Frankfurt, Germany and they were used to snow. So everything is fine…I am just really tired. I didn’t sleep that much on the plane.

I was picked up at the airport by a service called Edinburgh Direct and he brought me to where I pick up my keys and to my flat. He basically gave me a tour of the city! My room is on the top floor…I don’t know how many flights, but it is a lot. And there is a hallway with a lot of doors (kind of like Willard Hall). There are 2 bathrooms shared between (I think) 5 people. There is a big common area with a big kitchen, which is nice. My room is fine…It is just cold. I bought a bedding pack which was already in my room, but there are not enough blankets. I will have to buy more later.

I went to dinner with the 2 other UMW students here (Jaci and Lindsay) and then we walked by on the Royal Mile which is the main street. It was soo nice! It was just slippery from the snow. Tomorrow I am going shopping to get some things like another blanket and a cell phone.

Well, thats it for now. Sorry there is not more interesting news, but I will definitely keep you posted! Bed time! zzzzzz
