  • Met more neighbors
  • Met with the nurse for a health screening and TB test
  • Met more neighbors
  • Played Wii bowling video game with neighbors

Went back to my apartment to reflect on a pretty good day!

One thing to note, I am intentionally trying to participate in everything I can while I am here to meet my neighbors! Mission accomplished after day one. Now I need to focus on remembering everyones names!
