So I changed host families the 27th March, and moved in with Martine Maka, and her family, her 2 daughters at the house, and her husband, the girls' step-dad. I wrote a whole post about it I believe back in March. I am still living with Martine at the Pairay.
We have 2 weeks of Easter vacation in Belgium, and I signed up in August to go with the Rotary BRESA trip to Italy for 11 of those days! But I had some errands to run if I was going to go to Italy and be really warm and vacation-y.
|My new bus stop at the Place du Pairay. The neighborhood is called the Pairay, but I still don't know what I means, I think it's a name. It is a 2 minute walk from my front door, but 50 seconds if I run (cos I'm always late)|
|The Parc d'avroy getting flowered in! Leaves and everything!|
|I had shopping to do, and so I went to MédiaCité, the modern mall in Liège (where Primark is found!)|
|The ceiling looks something like this all around! This is the theme anyway, and it is recreated in several different aspects. I bought 2 pairs of shorts (I had but one pair for Italy) and a t shirt or two, and sunglasses.|
|The bus looks like this. I now take the 27 to and from school, home, and town.|
|I decided to explore a little bit on bus, and since MédiaCité is on the other side of the river than where we usually go, I got this nice angle on the tent that is the home of the Liège opera until the opera house opens back up next season or so.|
|The perron in the historic center|
|I came back to central Liège to get my hair cut! It was much too long to be wearing to Italy, where I would potentially be sweating and/or swimming! This is the before picture.|
|Walking to the proper bus stop at Standard to catch back up with the 27 with my new haircut (and the sun in my eyes)!|
|My new street in Seraing! (that car is for sale)|
|The church 100 metres to the right out my front door|
