I'm so sorry because of don't write... I was so busy and tired!! Tomorrow is my last day of training in NY! :) I'm going to explain you (a little) what I did! :)
On Monday we arrive to the Hotel (It's Hilton Hotel in Hasbrouck Heights). They pick up us at the airport! :) They explain you how is going to be all, give you your room key, said to you what is your team (I'll explain it), you buy the NYC tour ticket ($42) and the phone card ($20) (I bought the tour, but not the card because I have my laptop) and they give you a schedule:
You have to WAKE UP at 6.00 am (it's not necessary)
Breakfast is until 7.50 am
The class starts at 8.00 am
The curfew is at 10.00 pm (you don't have to sleep, but you should be at the room)
This first day is only for arrive to the hotel. We arrived at 4pm but one of my room mate arrive at 11pm! By the way my room mates are from Sweden and South Africa. So cute! I love them!! They are also going to San Francisco! <3
The second day we were all together (maybe 130 au pairs), almost 50 were from Germany! Hahaha. So we were talking and asnwer questions. There was color teams (brown, pink, yellow, blue...) and if you ask something or answer a question, you have a point. This game is important because if you win, you go to NYC FREE! :)
I was on the BLACK TEAM! Because I am in the Infant Program, so we don't participate in the game. The first day after lunch, they separate us (14 girls) from the other girls. The class finish at 4.30 - 4.45 pm and then, you have time to do what you want. I bought the ticket for NYC, so the bus picked up us at 5.00 pm and we went to NYC! This tour is almost all inside the bus... But if you are going to live in the West Coast, I recomend you that you buy it. I like it. We only leave the bus to take a group ohoto in front of the Statue of Liberty (so far away) and also in Times Square (I think it was for 2 hours. I have to say that the M&M's Store is there!!!!! So go! :D It's amazing.
The second day we was learning CPR and First Aid. 2 boys came and showed us that. It's cool! :D Au Pair Care gave us for lunch a typical american BBQ!! :D With hamburguers, hot dogs, salad... Was so good! :D After lunch, the agency called 4 girls in my group (I was one) and told us that we were choose to go to NYC (this is the price for the colors game). So I was 4 hours in NYC!!!! I took a lot of photos. It's amazing. I can explain the feeling that I had... A lot of skyscraper, people and Starbucks!!! Hahahaha. We arrived to the hotel at 9.30 pm. I was so tired so I had a shower and bed!
The third day (today) we had the same routine... wake up, breakfast, class... For lunch we had the PIZZA day! :D It was pizza and lasagne! :D So so so great! :D Today we lunched at 11.30 am because all the au pairs were leaving today (My group doesn't) After lunch we had more class and then we went to the mall. It's super BIG! A lot of shops... Macy's, Victoria's Secret, and a lot of shops that I've never seen before! hahaha. We had our dinner at Johnny Rockets, the typical 50' 60' restaurant! :D I loved it!!!! :D
I arrived to the hotel 2 hours ago, I had a shower, I packed my things and now I'm writing this! :)
I am so happy to be here... This is amazing... I know that you'll love it.
I love youuuuuuu <3 (More pics in my fb page! :) )
