The first week I was in England

It's my first time to come to London, I was really excited and hopeful for the things to come, like course arrangement,scenery spots and the one-day trip of London after my friends and I settled down in our homestay. Surprisingly, we stayed in a very big family which include a couple and their 3 daughters and 1 son. Their son is studying in America while one of their daughters is continuing her academic career in Oxford. By the way, they also have a pet dog called skomer. Here is their family photos.

The one thing I couldn't help showing to you is the food that cooked by our host. There are different kinds of them, we eat various vegetables, staple, meat in every night. And every Friday, it's the special day to drink wine, that is called wine time in the dinner. To be honest, I do enjoy this time which all the members of family do one thing together at the same time.

The most impressive thing after I came here is I saw the first snow in Coventry on last Sunday morning in 2018. And it was feather-like snow which filled my hearts in full. I standed inside and watched the show of snow!

On the weekend, it costed my friend and I a whole day to go to see some landmarks in London, such as Big Ben(is being repaired now), Nelson's column, Buckingham Palace, as well as some places where you can go shopping(Covent Garden, Oxford street). It was a fantistic experience that we took river boat to see the beautiful scenery in the side of the River Thames although the weather wasn't so good. It was really chilly due to some rain through the small hours and into the dust. Anyway, it is a definitely nice week, isn't it?
