TRAVEL PROFILE: CLARA AND NEVE

GUYS I MET PEOPLE WHO HAD NOT MET AN AMERICAN BEFORE
  1. Meet Clara and Neve!
    They're from Tolouse, France and Sardinia, Italy respectively. And both places sound beautiful.
  2. They are exchange students living in Birmingham, but are traveling for a few days.
    They were the only people I met in my room at this God-forsaken hostel. More on that tomorrow.
  3. Clara loves philosophy and Neve loves film. They both have one year left before university.
    I am elderly
  4. The burning questions on their minds included:
  5. WHAT IS TARGET
    Their minds were blown when I said we called it "tar-jay" when we wanted to be fancy
  6. Do you like Donald Trump??
    No.
  7. How do live award shows work?!
    "That feels prejudiced against California." I agree. Such is life.
  8. We talked about the dangers of nationalism, the U.K. not wanting to be in the EU anymore (this was news to me??? I am an awful American who does not keep up with international news), and Syrian refugees.
    The coolest teenagers I have ever met.
  9. I showed them my family's food truck, they were SO EXCITED
  10. We talked about how absurd movie theaters with dinner tables are.
    But like...they're PRETTY COOL.
  11. These girls are so brave to leave home for a year to study in a different country.
    Especially because a lot of people don't respect or understand their native countries.
  12. It was nice to have some slumber party style chit chat tonight with them.
    This is what traveling is all about: meeting people from different places and learning about each other.
  13. They are smart and charming, and I can't wait to see what they do in the world.
