Le Château

Bonjour everyone! Yesterday I went to a festival with my host family in our local castle. It is an event that takes place very other year and my family was nice enough to let me tag along. There was thousands of people who showed up in the most extravagant reinaissance costumes. My parents bought me a costume as a going away present and I cant wait to show it off. My host family and I are returning to the castle today for
                                              the last time to enjoy the Belgium custom. À tout à l'heure!

Le jour de 4

It is already my 4th day in Belgium and life is deffinately different. The most obvious challenge is to adjust to the time zone. There is a 7 hour gap between my town in Wisconsin and Theux, my village in Belgium. I often want to go to sleep at midnight and wake up at noon. Also, in Belgium and France the restaurants post thier menus outside. It is fun to learn about the diversity in Belgium.
