Day 1: The First Step
The day started early, with me crawling out of bed, and stumbling to get ready. The night before had been a hectic day of final packing. However, everything was worth it. We arrived at the airport, and everything was set. Taylor and I ate at Costa Coffee for breakfast, hopped on the plane, sat on a bus for 7hours, and, with much difficulty, arrived at the Linden Center. It was amazing at first sight, especially as we had just walked with all our luggage (which is quite heavy) for about 10 minutes non-stop to reach there. After massaging our sore shoulders and organizing our bags, we went for a five-minute walk around the three courtyards, and, after a brief introduction, ate a delicious dinner. The dinner was the first dinner of fresh vegetables and healthy cooking. Our table was nearly in tears from the amazing flavours, and the appreciation of a nice meal after a day of travel was very much welcomed. That night, for the first time in forever, the Fearless Group saw twinkling stars, and faint shine of the planet Jupiter. It was breathtakingly amazing, and we stared at them until the thought that we would be living in this environment for 28 full days really sunk in. Tonight I sit on my mattress-of-a-bed with Taylor and Eirean, tired yet anticipating tomorrow. A wonderful way to begin the Microcampus journey.
