I had the chance to go to Newport, Rhode Island, for my semester abroad. Paul Debarnot, another student form ESDES also went with me for six months and we were joined by Marina Draillard, a psychology student at the UCLy.
Thus, Wednesday, January 13 at 2p.m. local time, after a more than 12 hours flight and an endless trip, I finally landed in Boston.
The city welcomed us with which we thought was an extreme cold because it had snowed the night before.
Once at the airport, I was immediately impressed by the important patriotism in the USA. The American flag is everywhere and always in the foreground: on some houses, in the metro stations, in the street...
I also was immediately surprised by the fact that it was dark very early, around 4:30 p.m. Therefore, when we finally arrived on campus after 2 hours’ drive, we could not see anything clearly.
Our two mentors, George and Ghaith, who picked us up at the airport also accompanied us throughout the integration week for various administration documents, shopping, and especially to find buildings on campus, what seemed to us very complicated at the beginning!
