First days

I have been in Scotland for a day and a half now and the process of getting here was an experience in itself. First I had about a 10 hour flight to London, and then I had to find my way around the massive London airport to get to my terminal and gate to Edinburgh. That flight from London to Edinburgh was only an hour though. The best part on the trip here was the ride from Edinburgh to Dundee. It was the the first time I got to see the Scotland landscape with my own eyes, and it is beautiful here. Every thing is so green and there are hills and trees everywhere, nothing like America and I love it. I got to my flat around 6 last night and I unpacked and went to the grocery store to get some food and bedding for my room. The walk to grocery store was about 15 minutes and I the whole time I walked right next to the river. Today was the first time I got to see Scotland in the daytime and it is amazing. The first thing I see when I walk out of my flat is the river and the sunrise. Today, I walked around the city a little and found the building where I get advised and start the matriculation process. All the buildings look so old and awesome, I think I am going to enjoy my time here.
