There’s only one time before in my whole life I’ve been able to pass a three month period in the States. It was when I was an au pair in Washington, DC in 2003. Today, ten years later, I’m doing it again! As a foreign person, in the States, you are not allowed to stay in the country for more than three months unless you have a visa. Today is three months since Liz and I left Sweden and moved over here. So today I’m celebrating my opportunity to stay for way longer this time!
It’s Friday and we’re off for a road trip to Raleigh (the capital of North Carolina) this afternoon and the big State Fair. Something I apparently gotta experience when I live in North Carolina. Check out more about it here. Liz and I went to the Mountain State Fair, here in Asheville, in 2009 (check it out here), but the one in Raleigh is the big North Carolina Fair so it’s way bigger, and filled with entertainment such as rides, food, concerts, exhibitions, and agriculture, just to mention a few things. We might do some shopping as well since Raleigh has a pretty good mall with stores we don’t have here in Asheville. So the three month celebration continues in Raleigh this weekend and we are off once I’m out of school in the early afternoon. I’m excited!
