So on Monday the 3rd I finally received my long-awaited package from YFU! The contents included a less that informative letter confirming what I already knew, an oversized YFU logo t-shirt, several booklets about what to expect when traveling abroud (did you know that you're not allowed to trade currency on the black market?!) and a few other reminders. It also stated that I would be recieving information about my host family any time from now until the week I leave. On my to-do list so far right now is to get a TB test (oh joy...shots.. T_T), pay the remaining balance of $2500, get an electronics converter and to start thinking getting other odds and ends like packing and gifts together. Let's see what comes next!
