This report summarizes my and my family’s experiences at Samford University and the life in the USA July 27 – December 28, 2004.

The report contains experiences in getting abroad, working at a US college, practical issues and how the view of my world changed. The reader can start anywhere but please read the preface that explains the contents and the intentions with this report.
