Perth it is...

Adopt one today!


We finally got the feedback from the High School Program organization ... Cilli is going to be in Perth! :) In Cottesloe, Perth, to be exact. We've already googled it and looked at it on the map - even seen the house on Google View. Very cool. Not too far from the beach, just like she wanted.

And her best friend - who is also going to Australia - is also going to be in Perth.

I'm not so sure whether that is a good thing, because I'm worried that they will end up spending too much time talking German together, but maybe it's far enough apart so that they can't see each other too often. And Cilli's host family has three kids (13, 17 and 18 years old), so I'm sure they'll be happy to include Cilli in *their* teenage activities and claim so much of her time, that she won't have a chance to go off and be 'German' too often. ^___^

We'll be getting in touch with the host family this weekend by mail, and maybe by phone... I'm looking forward to seeing Cilli's reaction. :)

Poor kid - she's going to have to clean up her room this weekend! I'm not going to look at that mess for five months! >.> *And* my mother's Au Pair is going to stay with me for a few weeks, and Cilli's room will be free, so I'm putting her in there.

My daughter is not going to like this... *gg*

I'm sure she'll have a brilliant time, and come back all tan and using slang you won't understand. :)

*snicker*

Especially the tan part! She tans so easily. After our Italy vacation she always looks like she's been dipped in chocolate.

And yes, the slang's something I'm a bit worried about... >.>

German mixed with Australian slang will be AWESOME. Anyway, she's a teenager, right? So you're not supposed to understand her. :)

I have to stay clear of Australia, I burn way too easily.

Ye Gods! No one will understand her! *gg*

So true, so true... I already have my problems, even though I'm pretty much on top of the current language...

Mmm... I keep telling her that even though she tans *really* well, she has to be careful down there.

Me, I don't do sun very well. I tend to look like a cooked lobster within minutes. Which is why I spend my Italy vacation on the terrasse, under the bamboo shade. :)
