Most of us arrived on friday evening to Truro. We are staying in NSCC’s residence with lovely roommates. This place is so green, fresh and big. We have lots of people here to help us and make us comfortable such as ambassadors and program managers. Everyone is socializing and we also became close friends with each other, other internationals and some Canadians, of course. Now, we are having and education about what we are going to do for the rest of our exchange program: foreign correspondence. It is for sharing our experiences with Nova Scotia, our home countries and the next exchange students who should be following us to learn what is waiting them here We are on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and this blog for you guys to follow us.
Our first trip was to Halifax on Saturday afternoon. We went to the Halifax Citadel which was quite interesting because there are lots of people who still “live” in that century with their amazing old clothes and items. The castle is in the middle of the City and it is surrounded by high walls so nobody would attack them. They still have old guns and old rooms and furnitures for exhibition. There are some touching stories about war-time heroes which you should read once you get there.
After Halifax Citadel tour, we went on a Harbour Hopper tour. It is something that makes you learn all about Halifax city. The vehicle was so fancy that we started our tour on land and we went on the water. There was an amazing girl who told all about the city so we enjoyed it a lot.
Dinner at McKelvies was totally delicious! Sebnem ate “blackened salmon” which they cook with some special spices and Alina and Alvaro had a salad and steak because they are not fan of the sea food but we all enjoyed sweet potato fries
On Sunday, we have visited the Victoria Park in Truro. It was so big and nice with lots of waterfalls that people enjoyed the cold water after a hot day. At Park, all of the foreign correspondence students were together with following each other on basements to climb up and see the better view of the nature.
Now, we are little bit sad because we have to say goodbye to each other and to you but we are also happy because we will say hello to our host families! We will stay in touch so we will always now what kind of experience we are having in our exchange life. See you soon!
Sebnem Atci, Alina Grons, Alvaro Ortega.
