First Things First

About two weeks ago, my study-abroad adventure @Hobart and William Smith Colleges, located in Geneva, NY, took off. Geneva is located at the deepest of the Finger Lakes, the Seneca Lake.  My journey was off to a rocky start. After spending some time in NYC beforehand, we wanted to take a Greyhound bus to Geneva. Since our bus from NYC was delayed, we missed our connecting bus in Binghamton. We, my companions an I, were left with a decision: wait 5 hours for the next bus to Geneva, or take an uber. We decided in favor of the latter.

Settling In

It’s been an interesting couple of first days for me. After spending a week rather off the usual touristic places in NYC (my highlights: thrift shopping in Brooklyn and exploring freezing-cold and almost completely abandoned Coney Island) I have finally arrived in Geneva, NY — the place I will call home for the next 4 months or so. The journey upstate was exhausting and frustrating. The bus from NYC was delayed 1.5h, which meant that we missed the connecting bus in Binghamton, NY.
