First Homestay Family.
It was a family of four; now with me, five!
She was such a mom to me. She took care of me with great love as If I was her own blood son. We also used to have a lot of discussions about Kenyan and Canadian foods. She is such a kind lady.
He is such a hilarious, kind hearted and funny man. We had a lot of fun together. He was also the guy who took me Downtown Vancouver to show me the people who live of the streets. And he used to tell me funny stories of his work place at night and we used to watch sports games together.
This is a young hardworking focused girl. We used to cook together, and we also watched a lot of movies together. We did lots of fun stuff together.
This was an energetic boy who was a brother to me. We did lots of fun stuffs together. Most of the times we were playing video games together. We also went bike rides together.
With this family I had experienced more than what an average Canadian student would have had experienced for about five weeks, after five weeks it was time to switch the homestay family.
Second Homestay family
This was another great experience to me, because I wasn’t new to where I was going to visit. I was to move to Mr. Corbould’s family who was the principal of Kilmer, a school which we visited every Wednesday. And his wife Shellyn is a teacher in Mary Hill Elementary, a school which we visited every Thursday.
He was such a great person to live with. He was also very funny. Most of the times we went shopping with him he would greet more than ten people, he was very known. After school somedays we would go to his hot tub together. Or some days we would visit the gym together.
Their house was really cool. The whole house was Christmassy even the cutlery were also Christmassy. They also used to dress Christmas clothes every single day before Christmas.
This was my second Canadian mum. She was also a caring parent to me. She used to drive me to school every Thursday, because she was a teacher of Mary Hill, which we visited every Thursday. She also taught me how to play the piano, because she was a music teacher. And sometimes we would walk the dog together which was fun. We also watched Christmas movies everyday together before sleeping.
She was the first born of the family. She used to work at Coquitlam Swimming Centre, which was a coincidence because when we used to live in the previous homestay Allan and I visited her work place. She is a young energetic, funny girl just as the rest people of the family.
She was the last born in the family, Most of the time she would be studying, because she had exams here and then, and she also worked at one of the pets shops in Coquitlam. She was also a good homestay sister who had a great love for cats.
It was really fun having home-stays like these, I couldn’t get better homestays than than these. I’m really glad for the times we have spent together. You’ve taken me many places, some places which you have never even been before. I’ve learned a lot from you and I’m really humbled thanking you for hosting me during my stay in Canada. Asante Sana…
