I come from Bordeaux, a city on the west coast of South France. As you can imagine, it’s absolutely unlike New York City! When I decided to continue my studies here, I was a bit afraid of the city… I’ve lived in Paris for one year, but it is also different from NYC! Today, it has been exactly 3 months since I landed, and I feel like at home! I can’t stop looking all around me every time I go out, I’m still impressed about everything I see, I still have a lot to visit but I feel so happy here.
I couldn’t even imagine that I would feel this one day in another city than my native city. Of course I miss a bit my family, but I’m so excited to be here that I don’t even want to come back to France for Christmas holidays. I wish they could all come here.
I already have friends who came visiting me here, and each time I’m so glad to make them seeing this amazing city! I need to come back to France to do my last year of school but after, I’m already thinking about how I could come back here.
It may be the excitement of being abroad, but I know that right now I really love this city!
How could it not be like that ? This city has everything to be great! People are amazing, this is beautiful, you can everything you want, you can walk along one avenue and crossing so many different cultures, people, shops! Everything is huge but each neighbor makes me feel like in a village.
At first, I was a bit disrupted bu the American accent, I was used to the British one. Now, I understand much better but I’m still very surprised and also a little bit proud when I understand an entire discussion in a TV show!
Usually, I get lost everywhere… I’m absolutely not one of these people who have a good sense of orientation. But here… it’s so easy to know from where you are, where you have to go to be where you want! I love it!!!
As you could understand, I absolutely felt in love with NYC!
