Raymond and Ethan

My host family are great. They have a son who is really funny and fun to get along with, as well as a daughter who went to dancing camp, which is awesome. My host parents Letitia and John are great. They also have five cats, that are quiet, and a big beautiful house.

I love it working for the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. It is a great job. My co-workers are very funny and easy to get along with. I’ve found that it can be hard to live in the south, trying to find your way around a new city, making sure you take the right bus to work or wherever you’re trying to go. I got lost the third day and ended up in Halifax – haha. But things are good know, I’ve learnt my way around.

I would like to live down here sometime in the future. It’s a very beautiful and big place. I find that the culture is very different here. There are many different people from what seems to be a lot of different places, which is great to see.

I’ve went to the movies and to the mall here in Dartmouth. Ethan and I have went walking around the town, it was great even though we got lost for a bit, it was fun because we talked most of the time. I’m looking forward to doing a MMA or boxing class next week. Our host dad took Ethan and I for a ride to Halifax and showed us the Canadian fleet where there was huge boats that belong to the Canadian forces. I found it cool. We also drove through the neighbourhood with huge million dollar homes, with some good looking houses that were 3-4 stories high.

I’ve enjoyed this program and I’m looking forward to doing international in the future.
