Why aren't you writing your blog in english, now that you are in New Zealand?
This question is asked me a couple of days ago in 'formspring'. I thought about it. I really like to talk in english, this is one of the reason for doing this Au Pair Year in an english spoken country. And its also a nice thought to know, that an english written blog is so much easier to read and understand for people all over the world and to be a little international...(whatever).
But still I never wanted to change my blog totally in english, cause I was afraid 'something' could get lost. I cannot express my feeling and thoughts 100 % in english, but sometimes you just need do write about feelings so clear and pure that your native language is the easiest way to discribe.
Moreover, a big part of my family started to read my blog to be up to date with my life here. I doubt that my grandparents can understand Kiwi Slang...
Anyway..right now I have great pleasure by writing this post in english. Everyday I can add more new words to my vocabulary And phrases. Of course I still get asked where I come from. A Taxi Driver thought I was argentinean because of my accent. But the people here are so friendly, when they notice that you are not a Kiwi and they want to know about your homecountry and the reasons for your stay.
Okay, mates, this is all for now. Iam lying on my cozy bed, eating low fat rice crackers (another great thing about new zealand) and watch a couple of 'How I met your mother' episodes. What a great life :) Good night, guys. See ya!
