I totally forgot to mention the American professor who is also here right now. He is teaching a class at the PH. He is from GV and he has a wife, Molly, a 4 year old daughter Elle and a son Cody but we haven't met him. Elle and I hit it off immediately and I might end up babysitting her a few times while I am here! So when you see pictures of an adorable little girl that is our Elle. She is a silly girl who loves all the attention we give her. She goes around and spends time with just about every girl in the group, but she says she can only spend a certain amount of time with each person before she has to "go meet a new friend". She is pretty stinking cute. And it kinda helps with my withdrawal from spending at least 3 hours every day with my little kiddos. But I do miss those kids a ton!
So back to Thursday. Scott (the American professor), Molly and Elle were with us Thursday.
Eventually our crabbiness got the better of us and we found a nice pond/park to relax at. There was a nice little castle to look at and tons of ducks! Jason started feeding them nacho chips and suddenly there was a swarm of fish, ducks and pigeons around us waiting to be fed!
Some people were tired and went home after we watched the ducks. The rest of us met up with Annika, Sarah, Timo, Felix and Toby and headed to Frühlingsfest. It is like Oktoberfest but a little smaller. We walked to the big beer tent/hall where there was absolutely no room for us. We found couple tables outside and ordered a round of beers. HUGE beers. Like 1 liter.

After our beer and plates of fries half of the group decided to stay and head inside while the half I was with decided to get some real food and walk around. So we got some currywurst and bratwurst and then much to my dismay, rode on the ferris wheel. I pretty much just sat in between Katy and Jason staring straight ahead not looking outside the whole 5 times it went around.

Lots of love from Germany
