My first Au Pair Meeting!

Hey, hello! How is it going?

August 18th was a special day. I went to my first meeting with other Au Pairs. I was so excited to meet new people and spend time with them. It also was a great opportunity for me to find new friends.

However, it was not just a meeting to say “hi” to each other. Our amazing coordinator, Polina, invited us to a Glass Blowing Demo in Jim Loewer’s studio.

For those who don’t have an idea what a Glass Blowing is, I am providing a simple explanation here. A Glass Blowing is the art of shaping a mass of glass that has been softened by heat by blowing air into it through a tube.

We had a chance to experience the process of a glass blowing and that was exciting. Even though the glass blowing is a kind of dangerous art, some of us were lucky to help the artist Jim in squeezing red-hot glass.

Jim has been doing the glass blowing for 15 years. Isn’t it amazing? He truly loves his job. In case you want to know more about Jim and what he does, go and check out his website.

Thank Jim, Polina and Go Au Pair for unforgettable experience!
