This month started out on all souls day (November 1st), on this day my family and I met up with other family members to pay our respects at the polish cemeteries.

This was an experience that was completely new and different for me. In Canada we also pay our respects however this felt different and still seamed new as if I had never done it before, and it was something that I will remember probably for a long time. Afterwards we had some guests and we talked until we visited a different cemetery later that day as well. Throughout the month I was able to visit my friend who is currently living with my second host family on a few different occasions. I have started to hang out with him and some of his friends as well as my school friends outside of school which is definitely helping me to learn polish faster. Although I have taken fewer photos this month I have also had a lot of great experiences and amazing chances to meet new people and friends.

I was also able to see the first snowfall of the year which is something that I am excited about every year no matter where I am. The first snowfall has always been something that I love and the chance to experience it while in Poland is unbelievable and makes me so thankful that I have gotten this opportunity.
