But when I look back now that summer seemed to last forever and if I had the choice yes, I'd always want to be there. Those were the best days of my life'. This quotation of Canadian singer Bryan Adams sums up pretty well what I think about my exchange program in the United States, with only one exception, it wasn't summer of 1969 but the fall of 2009. Otherwise I completely agree with the above statement, which shows pretty well how much I appreciated my overseas experience! I'll give as much information as possible concerning my stay in Tampa, Florida, studying at the University of South Florida for one semester. I'll begin with a few general facts about the area, the city of Tampa itself and the classes I took during my stay. I'll then present my weekly journal summing up the feelings and impressions I had during my immersion in this new culture and highlight some of the common points and differences between my home country and the one I was staying in for a few months. I'll describe as precisely as possible what this wonderful experience means to me and how much I think it has changed my point of view about the United States of America, about living abroad, about being different and even about myself.
