I arrived at my host family's house yesterday, and they are very wonderful. I nearly cried when I left my Language Camp friends and started reading the heartfelt notes they had written in my journal on the train. As soon as I reached my HF, though, I determined that I would probably be for real crying when I got on the bus to the Frankfurt airport in June. They are super chill and okay with me walking around the house barefoot. They have "ein kleine Hund" named Charlie or something, and I have a quaint room with an excellent view of a pear tree. When I entered my room, I saw that there was a stuffed snowman on my pillow, and a flower and Kinder bar on my bedside table. Fer cute! I would tell you the German word for cute but
a. I can't remember it, and
b. It is one of the least cute words ever. In fact, it sounds a teensy bit vulgar. But all German words sound vulgar.
