I always say that you learn a new fact each day and on the journey over I learnt a few ....
1. Don't tell your life story (even if he asks) to the US Immigration officer who has the power of the stamp in your passport ..... he doesn't care
2. Don't argue with the Officers that say 1 personal bag and 1 cabin bag over - they wont change or bend the rules ... not even for an Aussie!!!
3. When the intercom at LAX airport announces your gate change .... please go and check with someone behind the counter .... saves a plane load of people wandering the airport and nearly missing the flight!!!
There are 24 people in our course and we are all from all destinations from around the world. We played the 'who are you and why are you here' game this morning which was really interesting to listen to everyone's stories.
First moment of getting excited this morning was walking through the Wilton Shop and being told that we get 25% discount of all products. I sort of said to myself that I would wait until next week to make purchases but what a surprise when I left this afternoon with 2 books!!!
Today was all about what we are going to learn over the next 2 weeks and starting to think about our final 3 tier cake which we will design. Am already in a paddy about what shape I will do and have changed my mind at least 12 times.
Have a look at the pics and you will get an idea of what the school looks like and what we did today.
Take care and until DAY 2
