(When I was talking to Hannah, she kept talking about biscuits. Come to find out, she wasn't talking about biscuits; she was talking about cookies. They call cookies biscuits over here in Ireland.)
After Hannah showed us to the Dublin Houston train station, we thanked her and boarded the train.
If I could describe our 3 hour train ride from Dublin to Westport in one word, it would be: SHEEP! There were sheep everywhere! For miles and miles, green hilly pastures and sheep were all that was seen. There were black sheep, white, sheep, and even sheep that had been tagged with different color spray paint.
We finally arrived in Westport!! When we found the cab driver who was sent to get us, he could not believe how much luggage we had between the five of us. People in the car next to us joked, "Ya staying til Christmas??"
Jana, our supervisor here in Westport, showed us how to get to school in the morning, showed us around town, and took us to the grocery store, after our arrival. We have finally unpacked our bags and settled in. It is 8:15 pm here! I am extremely tired from our long day of travel. Tomorrow is a big day: our first day of school! I'm having many mixed emotions: nervousness, excitement, worry...
Check in tomorrow to see how my first day at The Quay (apparently pronounced like "key") goes!
