So since I have been here (one week already!) I have been hosted by three different people so far thru CS (couch surfing) and everyone has been great! I haven't spent a penny on accommodation so far and met tons and tons of Couch Surfer's at the gatherings so far. Just last night I went to CS Drink Night and met about 80 new friends! There was even some Americans there :) (fairly rare for this part of the world).
I took my new CS host and his roommate along and introduced them as well. He lives with a Russian guy and a Chinese couple. Everyone is really cool. Actually the Chinese couple and the Russian have asked me to teach them English! haha it was be interesting for sure but I am going to give it a go! I have had a great time so far meeting new people and having fun.
I am still on the job hunt at the moment but, I am going to look at place long term to rent here in city and the guy renting the place I think has offered me a job so we will see how it goes. There was also a CS guy offering work too so either way I hope to have some work and a long term place to stay soon.
CS does tons of exciting stuff around the city and I love talking and meeting new people. They are even organizing a road trip/camping trip which I plan on going too! I was meeting my CS host (the current one) for the first time, we had a beer at a local outdoor pub.
I saw a girl across the way from us and she had the most stunning eyes I have ever seen. I could not take my eyes off her! I realised that quickly that could get awkward haha. So, even though I have never done this in my life I wrote my number on a piece of paper and I walked over to her and excused myself for interrupting her dinner with her friend but I said You look interesting and I want to get to know you, if you want to get to know me here is my number. Then I walked away. I didn't even wait for her response. So far she hasn't called and frankly I am doubtful that she will but it felt really good just to take the chance. I don't even know her name but it was worth it for me.
Well that's all I got for now. I did have a great city tour with a CS'er yesterday he showed me all over the city and I really enjoyed that. Yall take care,Tyler
