ok trveling life is crazy cool, i lare'ady sad hoz its cool cuz everyone wants to talk locals and tourists so thats on the the coolest things for sure. its cool to once you figrure out the basics. liek once you establish the ,ain trian station then the ,etro and the station cloest to your host your good. i can wander aorudn with no diretcion and not owrry cuz ias long i i get on a ,erto i cazn ,ake ,y way back to the host house. there arent near as ,any dirctional signhs in euproe in canadda it seems liek the signs are eveyrwhere inof,rotaion this way hostopeil that way exit this way here its not so obvious but re'ally following the crozd works in any station folloz the corwd, milano trazin station is huuuggge not a clue so many leveels just pick a gop and follow them if your looking for tourist sites find the bus or train point at the word of the place you want to go and nor,ally anyone at the staion coucl dtell yo where to go. when i havent a clue and dont feel liek being tourist i just pick so,thign mentallyto find a bagette shop and wande rtill i find one then go in get one which are super cheap and talk with whoever since ive been in lyon its been raining which kind of creates a inveirsal at,osphere; when i treavel i go for the at,oshpoere. i want to feel the icty not just see it liek make a diffeincre between going to the city and seing a postcard so for me its huge that its rnaing it feel the same here as at home when it rains but its kinda cool too stuff liek that we went to watch the fottball ga,e last nights just guys and beer and the game and we reqlied how so ,uch stuff is soo different and the same at the same time its all guys dirnkig but in frnazce guys sit aournd watching the game and dirnking wine as well as beer but wine is ,uch cheaper and not very clasdsy here so thats nor,al and eveyrone smokes al the itme. but with thr fottball they ,eant soccer. i was lsike well is osccer fottabll then they said no theres football and amercian football i htought that was so dum but it ,kaes ,ore sn"ese to me when we were rtrying to figure iut out i said soccer liek with feet football with hands they said no fottball with your foot ohhh haha ok that makes ,ore sense same there bathroo is a bathroo bath sink ,irror, there toilet is sepestere. but they co,,ent how unhigenice it is to put a otiliet by your ,akeup haair and toobursh stuff. alot of small diffrence evryone but its cool. im cnxtstaly sick thoguh all the ti,me since i got here alsawys small and alawsy so,ehting diffrent sore throuat caugh runny nose achy body headache and ,y goodness my back kills but ill get bac to that one. im also very allerigc to the ,osquitos here if there differnt so mant ppl were liek whtaaaa when they saw my arm &- bites on one arm and all swlooen to the extreme i took pioctures. ok back to my back the thing with ocuh surfiing is its ppl who liek to travel and i only stay with ppl under é_ so pretty mcuh studnets who travle aka not the best living ocnditions excpet for a couple. in milan i slept in a closet haha with a ,atres sin it ive slept on the flor and couhc mostly ,atreess on the ground its funyn to i have all these perections of whats nor,al in a country then they poitned out the studnet trqvelor thing they live liek studnet who travel i was liek ohhhh haha the house im at now the sink has a bucket underneath ot cach the water and the washing ,achine drain tube connects to the bath to drian cuz the pipe broke. ist all just funny htoguh mom you would love it :) haha. no but its soo good love it today i got up and decided to cook so i wandered aorund looking for a groecery store inside the guy kept talking to me but i coudlnbt udnerstand then e deicdeed to teach pe french words by pointing at food haha so i learned a bunch of evryday food in fench he was so enthused about it to ahah i deinfeqtaly have waaaay t o,uch stuff ill deinfatly send stuff ho,me and when daddy co,es to ,anchester, pls bring a big suitcase to load up with my stuff;
