Today there was the Welcome Party at the residence…a few nibbles and some drinks. Of course I went along to get to meet other people. Actually, I was quite surprised that it seems like not everyone came. I was expecting people to come. Must be different people different ideas.
Anyways, after having soemthing to eat and drinking some very bad wine (even I could not drink it!). We got a short ‘speech’, and one girl played the violin and the other (who is a soprano) sung a song.
But I think the most important thing I learnt today…visiting rules will not be relaxed in January…the manager of the place actually sounded very shocked when I asked. 😦 Sorry people!
