I’m here! After my surprisingly easy twelve hour flight (one transfer in Atlanta) I got into Baton Rouge at half past 4 local time and was in my temporary accommodation within an hour. My temporary roommate is Tessa who goes to Sussex University and strangely enough knows Owen Lewis… small, small world.
Exciting developments include the following:
- A KOALA LAMP, SCORE!
- A massive thunderstorm yesterday
- Going to Wendy’s (ticked it off the list and now never have to go again)
- Walk along Sorority row
- SO MUCH FOOD
Tonight the International centre are holiday a welcome party with lots of Louisianan cuisine, perhaps a review is in order?
We (yeah, I’ve got friends) also decided that the phrase “Mate, can I bum a fag?” must never be used in the United States. Ever.
“I love your accent” count: 1
Food I couldn’t finish count; 1
