Today was our last full day in Löningen. We spent our morning making a visit to Löningen’s Bürgermeister (mayor), Herr Marcus Willen. We were greeted with gummy bears and Coca-Cola in the meeting room of the city council, where Herr Willen shared an informative presentation about Löningen and answered questions from the students. It ended, as always, with a picture for the newspaper. Thank you, Herr Willen, for such a wonderful welcome in this beautiful area. After the meeting, we headed back to school for our final classes, pausing in the school yard for a final picture. Tomorrow morning we head south to Köln and the Rheinland!
