My name is Alexander Fraga and I’m from a city called Belo Horizonte in Brazil. I got to Canada on August 25th. I’ve been here for only three days and the experience has already been amazing since I got here. In these three days I’ve already done so many things and I already have so many stories to tell.
As I said, I got here three days ago so I’ll tell a little bit of each day. When I first got to Canada I went to the Foreign Correspondent Camp where were also the ESL students so I met a lot of people from a lot of different places which was really fun. In this same day we went to an Animal Exposition and an Amusement Park. That was a great first day.
In the second day we had a session on how to use instagram effectively and then we went Tidal Bore Rafting which is an amazing experience that everyone who comes to Nova Scotia should have. Tidal Bore Rafting is something that there is only in Nova Scotia because the tide here changes a lot so when the tide is coming from the ocean to the river it creates some waves and then if you raft on them you have Tidal Bore Rafting.
In the third day we had a session on video and photo production. After that we went to Victoria Park which is a beautiful place and I got the chance to see a deer in the wild. Later we went to Tim Hortons so we could try Canadian Typical Fast Food. On this same day, at night, we went Ice Skating with the ESL students.
I can’t believe that I’ve done so much in such short time. That really shows how Nova Scotia has great possibilities for you to do whatever you want to do to have fun.
