First day in Pretoria
So the next day I woke up unpacked my stuff(last night I was to tired) and took a shower. I am the only one who can fit under the shower, the rest of the girls are all to tall. Glad to be small or as they say in Holland, klein maar fijn! After taking a shower more girls arrived. So now we are a total of six girls. 4 dutchies including myself, one german and one swiss girl. After having some breakfast and meeting another Dutch girl all of us went to the university to register. The campus is big. One girl told me walking around the campus is 4km. Anyway first I had to go to the international office to deliver some papers after that i was sent to a student desk were they told me there was a problem with my contract. So they send me back to international office. Back at the international office I was not the onlly one with this problem so we got sent back to the student desk were they would fix the contract problem for all of us. The lady of the desk told us to wait for two minutes which meant waiting for at least one hour. Luckly we were with a group of girls so time flew by very quickly and all of our problems were solved. The next step was to register for my courses. Which took a while as well but finally 4 out of 5 of the chosen subjects were approved. Which still leaves me with choosing one, and getting that approved as well.
After all of this arranging I went back to my room and relaxed for a bit. Another swiss girl arrived so the house is almost full still one room left to be filled. Later that afternoon I went to do some grocery shopping at the mall. It was a five minute walk and you just have to cross and ignore the trafic lights. When I came back from the mall I called home and we cooked diner with all the international girls. Funny thing is that we only have 4 forks and 5 knifes so we had to borrow some from other houses. After diner we just talked and i decided it was time for meto write a my first blog.
It is very detailed as I read back. Don't know if I will keep it up like this but I will definitly keep you guys updated!
Soo See you soon! Lots of love,
