A quick glance at the next four and a half months

I finally managed to snap some pictures of where I am living:

My bed

My bed with no less than four comforters

The door in my room that goes out to the patio area. See that glowing orange thing? That is what heats my room...

Outside of my room; bathroom would be on the right, but there's no need for pictures of that

The living area. Very simple, includes a piano.

Bonus photo! Here is my dinner. Very delicious pasta.

In addition, I learned how to use the bus to get to my university. It is a fifteen minute ride on a very, very, jam-packed bus, otherwise it is a forty minute walk.

The Universidad Católica del Uruguay is much bigger than I imagined, and certainly a lot nicer, too. The inside reminds me a lot of what some of the older buildings at Western look like, but the entire university is contained in one large, three-story building with a few newer additional buildings. It also has its own chapel and I was able to peek inside while they were having a daily mass. There’s also a really nice library, outdoor patio area, bookstore, a place for students to relax along with a ping-pong table, and a cafeteria to have lunch or purchase something to eat.

Orientation for the international students begins tomorrow, so I am excited to begin acquainting myself more with the university as well as other students.

Chao chao!
