As I said it won’t be very chronologic blog, so now I’ll move to present.
At the end of September 2015 I’ve started, as everyone say, one of the biggest adventures of my life.
I’ve become Au Pair in the USA, I live in Denver, Colorado and I take care after two cute boys and one little dog.
What can I say now, after almost three months?
That I experienced something different.
I won’t say it was easy, sickness caused by different food, homesickness, longing for friends, which I still fighting with.
But I am, I live, I’m getting known new world and new culture. And I’m making my dreams came true.
What can I say about Denver?
City not big, if we take standards here. In New York, during Training School, they said me, that Denver lie by the mountains. During first week I haven’t seen any mountain, because of the storm and I was a little dissapointed. But when they showed themselves they were worth waiting for and I still can’t stop yearning when I see them.
What I have to say about are Red Rocks, which I had possibility to see during Run the Rocks. Thing that I have to say proudly was that I run about 3 miles in 45 minutes and I’ve never been running in mountains before.
What else was amazing so far was american Halloween, houses decorated like the best horrors, spider webs, tombsotones, skeletons and children knocking in doors and screaming “trick or treat”.
Besides, Pampkin Patch and my perfect pumpkin!
And Zombie Crawl. O mummy everyone should take part in that one day! Whole main street in zombies. And it wasn’t Walking Dead. So many amazing costumes and ideas, my favorite was zombie Barbie and Ken in boxes!
If we’re talking about costumes. I was listener or part of many conversations about the best Halloween costume. And I have to say that my favourite was very big guy dressed as Princess Leia and screaming to his girlfriend “you cannot leave Princess Leia alone in the corner!”.
What else I experienced during that time?
American camping. Oh yeees. Camping in Colorado. Mountains, high grass, camper, bonfire and Marshmillow’s.
Something that I saw in movies and experiencing that I felt like in movie myself. Fairy tale.
What could I say about Americans? They are much different people. Starting with “Hi! How are you?” on every corner, through “I love your shoes, when I was younger…”, ending with “Common, I will show you some great places!”.
They… Are always positive. Even if they are unhappy, they are still positive.
Or maybe I should wrote “you”? 🙂
But, what my teenager half realised with sadness, all handsome Americans they had to take to Hollywood. Because during my whole stay here I saw maybe a few of them. Even don’t know if all of them were Americans.
For now it’s all what I remember, but for sure you’ll see more posts about differences and american adventures.
If you have any questions, notes, or challenges, that I could try to do- write, comment. I’ll answer for sure.
