Lol, heard the same. Never been there. But don't go into it expecting it to be chill. Because it will still be a culture shock to you no matter what. Just take it day by day, and try not to think about home too much or you'll get depressed. Thats the last thing you want. Just stay focused, and you will be A-OK.
