I'm one of the few people who aren't staying all 4 weeks. I'm surprised how many Ministries of Trade have multiple representatives attending this program considering the high cost. Delegations from Vietnam and Kazakhstan are both here, but I'm sorry to report that they are neither very bright, cultured or do I consider themselves good representatives for their country.
I'm also surprised at how many missions open their door to us. I don't think you'll find this anywhere else in the world unless you personally know someone and receive an invitation.
Well I absolutely adore the international set and am completely in love with one of the program directors. Ok, I'm totally overstating it. Infatuated with is probably more appropriate at this point as there is little chance for reciprocity =) But a girl can always dream, can't she? =)
It's really gorgeous here.
What else.. I really like my American friend ... there's also another girl from Denver, CO who is really granola looking but acts like she's queen of the world. My friend and I were both like "since when is Denver a place to be snotty about?!" Hilarious..
There's also this strange Hapa girl from San Francisco. I'm bewildered by her lack of flexibility. She's this really pretty girl who reminds me of my old roommate Katelyn, but not quite as alien looking - with these huge dimples and she dresses *beyond* preppy. Almost like preppy from the 50's. And she's very smart, but very liberal in a way that's unrealistic and enters the annoying zone. Her points are valid, but her mindset is so idealistic it ends up wasting time instead of actually solving anything.
