My day off. The Bristol students have pretty much adopted me as one of their own. They even invited me to go for a picnic and a “country walk.” Little did I know that country walk meant a hike up some pretty steep hillsides. However, it was entirely worth it when I was blessed by a gorgeous panorama of the countryside including several peaceful farms with dairy cattle just out grazing against the brilliant green of the grass. It was also highly enjoyable to be able to spend time with my new friends and meet several new people. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time over here, and apart from missing my animals and realizing that I have to return to finish my veterinary degree, I would happily stay.
