Busy Busy Busy

Ok it just took me a while to figure out how to post. haha Sometimes my computer will be in Hebrew and I can't figure out how to fix it. So that was confusing.

Anyways so we had out first field trip this last Monday! It was a lot of fun but was really windy and cold so we were definitely ready for it to be done. We went to many different sites and overlooks of the city. It is quite the city, there is so much to look at. I am still confused as to what is what in some places but figure I have about 3 more months to figure it all out.

What I really liked about our field trip is that we would sing hymns at many of the different sites that we went to. We went to an place that overlooked Bethlehem and sang Christmas songs, it was very special. We actually get to go to Bethlehem in March so I'm excited for that!

We do so much walking here! I feel like I should be skinnier by the time I get home and have super toned legs but I doubt that will be the case considering I eat so much food here. Today I had 3 pieces of chocolate cake... don't know what overcame me but it's definitely something I hope doesn't happen again. The food is pretty good, obviously.

The people here are so awesome and I'm having even more fun the more I get to know everyone. I think I have almost everyone's name's down so that's nice. My sleeping schedule is still way off and I have been waking up at least and hour and a half before my alarm most mornings. It is a little frustrating. Maybe it's because I left my teddy bear Stanley (whom I received from a special friend) at home. His presence is missed at night.

So the center issues us a cell phone for security reasons as we go out to the city. I have already had 2 missed calls from random numbers and some random man called me yesterday. I'm so popular here.

Anyways I'm just rambling. I should definitely be doing my homework right now. School is pretty hard here! Just a lot of reading but it is very interesting stuff so it's not too bad. Sometimes I just wish that school was never an issue.. but that's just me being unrealistic.

Love you all and hope things back home are going well! I love getting emails so if you want to email me my address is lettywursten@gmail.com. Good night (Jerusalem time)!
