Making a dream come true

The packing, the goodbyes, the long flights, all was worth to be in Canada, the land of oppottunities.
Hi everyone, this our blog where we are going to be posting about our experiences in Canada.

We are a group of nine students all from different countries,we are all foreign students because we all here for scholarships some of us are going to stay here in Nova Scotia for six months and others for 10 months.
First day- august 25
After the long flights we had to take we arrived to the Esl camp at Nova Scotia community collage, some of us arrived in the morning and others at night, everybody giving us a warmly welcomed, the same day at night we had a party where we meet the embassadors which was fantastic and very exciting. Everybody had a wonderful night dancing and having fun it was an incredibly fist day in Canada, even tough some of us who are not used to this whether were freezing.
Saturday- agust 26
On Saturday we woke up and went to breakfast at 8. After that we had an indrotuction where we meet Paul Millman, Mike Boston and Monica Nielsen. They explained us the responsibilities that a foreign correspondent. After the introductions we had a game of scarbenger hunt with the embassadors where we had to Take a bunch of pictures doing Canadian stuff. After that we grab a quick lunch and went to Halifa, there we had the opportunity to go in the Harbour Hopper, where we heard some amazing stories like the life of the famous artist Maud Lewis and the sad story of the Hallifax explosion. After having the amazing experience we went to another adventure in the Citadell Hall in there we made some observations between Canada and our countries like the lack of motocicles in Canada. We had a lot of fun there playing with the canons and following the piper. Following that we went to a marvelous dinner where we tried a lot of different things like lobster and shrimp pasta. Then we went for a piece of heaven that Canadians called beaver tails and we ate them on the way back to camp, that was another fantastic day.

On Sunday we had a class of photography where we learned some tips on how to take pictures with the magnificent photographer Tyler Rogers. After that we had another challenge with the embassadors we had to make a video explaining things about our countries, then we went to Victoria's park, a beautiful park in Truro we walked on the park and we got to see the waterfalls which was fantastic. after the adventure we grabbed dinner on bubba rays we had a Christmas dinner we ate a fantastic meal a little diffrent from what we usually eat for Christmas In our country's but still delicious.
Back at ten camp we did an esl comedy theater where we had to do a sketch with the other embassadors and international students, it was really fun and the perfect end for a perfect day.
Monday- august 28
The last day at the camp a very exciting and at the same sad because we had to say goodbye to the friends we meet here but also excited to meet our host family.
We wished all of the students a wonderful year and we hope you have fun and enjoy your stay.
