I am lucky enough that I have a family in the UK that I am very close with and I went to visit them. We spent most of the break in their house in Wales. It was quite wonderful. I had been to their house in Wales twice before in my life. Both times were in the summer and my family was there as well. Since the last time I was in Wales they added electricity but they still do not have wifi, and while we were there they didn't even have a working phone because the phone lines had come down.

For New Year's Eve we went back to their house in Norwich where they live. I worked at an Italian restaurant, where my friend and her boyfriend work, and it was incredibly fun. I had never worked at a restaurant before, but now I think I may want to try and get a job as a Hostess or Waitress when I get back to the United States. Anyways, I worked for the night from 5:30 until around 11:30 and then went and celebrated New Year's until 5 in the morning with my friends. It was a wonderful experience and a great way to ring in the New Year's.
I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's and Christmas if you celebrate it! And if you have any questions about Lewis & Clark, Studying Abroad, Foreign Languages or anything else, as always you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
