Official School Welcome

We had the official welcome at school this morning. Lots of smiles and lots of applause! Each of our students stood up and introduced him or herself in German and added a couple of “fun facts.“ So…, public speaking in another country in another language…,kind of makes the senior speech look easy! You can see more here:

Day Trip to Bremerhaven und Bremen

Bremen, Market Square Panorama

We spent the day in Bremerhaven and Bremen. Bremerhaven is the site of the emigration museum. Over 7 million Europeans (most of them Germans) emigrated to the Americas from Bremen. The museum gives the visitor a feeling for what that experience might have felt like. After Bremerhaven, we spent the afternoon in Bremen, a member city of the Hanseatic League, an organization of cities that fostered trade and helped bring the Middle Ages to an end in northern Germany.

Making a wish at the statue of the Bremen Town Musicians

On the steps of City Hall in Bremen.

I hope this wish comes true.

So many wishes!

Another wish.

Legend has it that you can make a wish at the statue of the Bremen Town Musicians. (It’s a fairytale.)

It’s been a long day(s) of travel, but everyone held up just fine. Here we are with our welcoming party in Löningen, and it’s a beautiful day!
