    My host family, the Browns, is a great family. They are very nice and helpful to me. Charles is a geologist and we are both history buffs, which makes for great conversation. We have plenty to talk about when it comes to history, religion, politics, sports, and so on. He is always adding to my vocabulary. He has already taken me to two football games. He has also made a great effort to explain the rules of football to me.

    I have had so many wonderful opportunities to go and do things ever since my arrival in New York City last summer! Last Friday, I went on a field trip with students from the upper division of the Garden School. We went to Fortuna Gallery at 77th Street in Manhattan and also to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I learned a lot about mosaics and works of renaissance art in Italy. Two parents were kind enough to arrange the trip for us. I had a wonderful time!
