Welcome to the USA, Alejandra!
Yesterday, we left at about 10 am for O'Hare International Airport in Chicago to pick up Alejandra who is a 15 year old student from Spain who will be staying with us for the next month. We were connected to her through a professor at Calvin. We arrived at the airport a couple of hours early to be safe. The girls made a sign for her since we had never met her - only through pictures on the internet.
After Alejandra collected her luggage and made it through customs on her own, she came through the gate. The girls were excited to meet her and it turns out, she is a sweetheart!
We left the airport and went downtown for the best pizza in Chicago at Giordano's.
The girls hit it off...
... and we all had a good time trying to figure out what we were all talking about.
And the pizza was good, too.
