Whoa, it has been quite a travel to get here! I was supposed to be here last Wednesday, but I got stuck in Chicago for one day. My original flight was cancelled because something broke down at the Hancock Airport's weather station. The weather system was fixed at that same day, and I had a new opportunity to fly in the evening. Well, the plane took off and I immediately fell asleep. I woke up to hear captain's announcement that we have to fly back to Chicago - the weather system had broken again. I can tell there were a lot of grumby people there in the plane.
Luckily, third time's a charm, and on Thursday afternoon, I finally made it to Hancock. I was really tired during a whole weekend but now I'm getting used to this time. People here have been very helpful and nice, and it has been easy to readjust here.
Me and a teacher student Ekku are going to be the next ones to teach Finnish language and culture for 3rd graders in South Elementary School. Ekku was supposed to arrive this Wednesday, but his flights are cancelled because of Lufthansa's walkout... Hopefully he'll make it here before next Monday when teaching will begin!
Before Ekku arrives, I'm getting used to places and preparing for the teaching. I've already visited Finnish-American Heritage Center and going to explore the library of Finlandia University. It's so exciting to see Finnish heritage here!
