Maandag 9 oktober vertrokken onze vierdejaars tto-leerlingen naar Florida voor een tiendaagse studiereis. De leerlingen verblijven daar in gastgezinnen bij leerlingen van de Lakeland/Harrison High School. In deze blog vertelt Romy Bakker over haar eerste kennismaking met de Amerikaanse cultuur.

Hello y'all!

We arrived Monday (which is yesterday) evening, it was pretty late. Today we had to wake up early since my exchange lives an hour from school. So I woke up and got breakfast. We had bagels, tea and juice. We went to school with a real American school bus! It was nice to have the American experience.

It was still dark when we arrived at Lakeland/Harrison High School. For the Dutch people that only have one building the school campus of Lakeland was like a big maze. We walked to class and got a seat.

The announcements started and everyone stood up and looked at the American flag, which is in every class. The oath started and I didn't know what to say so I just put my right hand on my heart and listened to the others. Then all the exchange people were called out of class and we got a tour of both the Lakeland campus and the Harrison campus.

After the tour we just followed the classes of our exchanges. After school I went to Target and Dunkin' Donuts. After we went there we went to Peterson Park and had a pot luck picknick with all the exchanges and their families. I ended up singing with Dutch and American people. But it was late so we had to go home.

It was a nice first day in America!
