"Woohoo, I'm there!"

Puh, done!

After a very very short night, better said a "two-to-three-in-the-morning-nap", several security controls and checks, mistrusting looks into my face if I might be a terrible terrorist, a short stop in London Heathrow, two movies, a too tired stewardess who covers me with hot - and I mean HOT! - coffee all over my lap, the ambigious approach to sleep next to a loudly snorring neighbour, another bundge of security controls and loads of questions, why I want to come to the US, if I am a terrorist and if I carry nuclear weapons with me - yes, seriously... - , a quite conveient transfer to my dorm, learning the fact, that Americans drive really slow on their highways and a first missing thought to the beloved "Autobahn", a quick and nice check-in procedure and one last final jump/fall into my bed I recognize, that I finally arrived in the US :-).

I am living "on campus" meaning within the terretory of the University's possessed buildings and halls, in the part of Washington called "Foggy Bottom" - well, not "nebliger Hintern" but rather "vernebeltes Ende" of Washington - as it is located directly next to the Potomac River and just tein walking minutes from the White House. I share a kind of flat with three other students from Spain, England and Scottland.

The George Washington University is a city campus, which means, that the whole university is located within the city of Washington and all the departments and Schools, as for example the School of Business I will attend, are looking like huge offices and are spread in the mentioned Foggy Bottom area, which gives you a very cool first impression.

See you,

Achim
