Autumn in America, and especially Autumn in New York, was one of the parts of the Au Pair in America experience that I was looking forward to the most. While Canada has some similarities to America in terms of weather and fall activities, there is something especially beautiful about the fall foliage in Northeastern America.
While lockdown may not be the ideal situation, it has definitely bonded me and my host family for life.
I’m a Canadian au pair, currently living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York. When I began my time here as an au pair, I never could have imagined that the world would throw so many curve-balls, and while I certainly didn’t expect much of my time here to be spent under lockdown, I am still so glad that I am here.
