Iowa Trip Diary #6

Let me summarize the first four days at Iowa first. The first two and a half days were pretty good. I was not experiencing any jet lag and I was sleeping well. I just rested on the day that I arrived and played some games with my buddy. On the second day, I went to church with my host family. I met some people that I knew from last time, and met some new people too. In the afternoon on the same da...

It was breathtaking! I'm getting more use to the school system day by ...

It was a little bit surprising for me, b...
