1st couchsurf experience

So I got to milano at 1200 and waited three hours at the train station until shelby was supposed to get in. And she made it!! Its nice to have a friend who will share this travel experience with me. We waited until our couchsurfer could meet us after he finished work. For those unfamiliar with couchsurf it is a online community of travelers kindof similar to a myspace or facebook, and people that are on there will vouch for you as a traveller or person so that way when you email someone about staying with them they can look at your references to make sure your not a weirdo. So I am staying with Felix and Manuele. Felix is Ghanian but was born and raised in France. He is doing an internship in Italy since Sept. and will leave in two weeks to go study in England. He is 21 years of age. Manuele is originally from north africa but has been in italy for 7 years, 6 of it in rome and this past year in milan working as an engineer, he is 36 years of age but looks freaking in his late 20s. The are very positive, upbeat conversational people. They first night they cooked for us and we stayed on a pull out couch. We have use of their internet and can come and go and do as we please. We couldnt have asked for better experience. I tried cooking last night but they said no no worries we are your host, just relax but I cooked the pasta anyway. What a sweet deal for not paying anything to sleep at their past haha.They were tripped out that I put the pasta in first before the water was boiling. I def. shocked them cause I cooked fast and was mixing different pasta. We went out to the club last night hoping to pay tribute to Michael Jackson, which was shoking news to Shelby and I. And the club had switched their lineup of music to pay tribute, but unfortunately the club roof had caved in, but we still went out and danced the night away to house music which i am not a fan of but they had michael jackson videos on in the background which was nice. alright got to go drink the capaccuino manuele has made for me. ciao

Hi B-Day Girl,

Happy Birthday little sister!!!!! 25 years old......WOW. Unbelievable! What happened to my little sister. She is all grown up traveling the world and that is awesome. Hope you had a terrific day. I had to work today so if I tried to call you now that I am home it is 3 am in Italy so I think I won't do that. But I tried before work and it was busy so someone else was wishing you a Happy B-day. Any who.....hope you are having a fantastic time. Love you. Happy 25!
