I drove up with Karla (Ecuador) and Mickey (Germany) who are the Inbound students in Cambridge along with Raquel (Ecuador). Saturday was spent sitting in a lecture hall and learning things to hopefully help and enrich our exchange experience. We were also issued our Rotary blazers and took pictures later with our spiffy new red blazers - it's official now! Yet again we had another "dance party" at night, also all the Inbounds brought/made food from their home country. I also made a bunch of cupcakes since they were such a hit at Wanakita!

Sunday our parents arrived and we were in the lecture hall again learning about the nitty-gritty stuff about insurance, booking flights, etc. Also we were able to break-apart and talk with the Rebound, Inbound and my parents about Chile and any questions I might want to know. Also that morning a bunch of us had fun seeing how many exchange students we could fit in a tree - we managed to get 12 successfully!

At the end of the weekend the Inbounds received a certificate and it was really emotional especially since this may be the last time before they go on the Cross-Canada Trip or leave to go home that we get to see them! :( Needless to say there were many tears and hugs to go around.
The days are ticking down but I still don't have a date of when to arrive, or my forms back, or a visa... but things will come together eventually!
