My host was a teacher and after all the good experiences I made in the Australian school I visited I decided to join her, too! Have a look which lovely young ladies I got to know there!! I had great fun attending various classes and listening to what my host taught her pupils!
Can you imagine, Leonhard, that I celebrated Christmas this year in such a lovely atmosphere full of sun and warmth? It was very different to what I knew about Christmas so far but it was very nice!
... and Leilani and I loved all the decorations there!!
And have a look - we even had a real (well, almost real...) Christmas tree at home, too! We had a great time and celebrated alot - even some of my new friends here joined us ;)You know what we did one day? We went ice-skating!! Yes, you are right, ICE-SKATING!! It was the first time I ever did it (by the way: Did you already learn it meanwhile?) and that was on Hawaii!! Crazy, isn't it? There was a large skating hall and Leilani and i had really alot of fun giving it a try! I was full of haematomas afterwards but that was worth the fun!!
The scenery on Hawaii was really beautiful as you already saw on the "beach-photos". You know how much I love the sea! But there was something else really impressing here: I saw a real volcano! My first one ever!!! It is called "DIAMOND HEAD" beautiful, hm?
