Location: Horn, Austria
Well, I’ve finally arrived in the town of Horn and it’s pretty much how I imagined it to be. Horn seems to be an average small town in Austria. There is a lot of farm land surrounding the area and I’m near the “Wald Viertel”, literally meaning “Forest Quarter”. I’ve heard there is some decent hiking in the area, but the weather has been gray and miserable since I arrived. I can’t understand people here very well, which is frustrating, but I think means my German is going to improve very quickly. My housing set up is odd to say the least. I share a bathroom and a kitchen with a man who appears to be in his mid to late 30s. More on my “house” later.
I had my first day of teaching today. I’m just introducing myself for now. The kids aren’t talking much, but seem to think I’m funny. Or maybe they just think I’m strange. I’ll guess I’ll find out soon enough.
