Yesterday was my first day in Germany, and today was my first day in a German school. My host mom, Ingeborg, welcomed me with the American flag and a fun sign. We talked about what we would maybe do the next month….such as going to Christmas markets which are so popular in Germany, cooking a Danish Christmas meal since Ingeborg is part Dannish, and attending the Kiel ballet. Then, the whole family welcomed me with a breakfast of different breads, meats, cheeses and spreads…they even have a coffee machine similar to our Nespresso…very cool! I wanted to stay up until that evening so we decided to see the Kiel U-boat located in the harbor. It is the last of its kind, and was so interesting to see how 44 men fit into such a small space. We also went to the Marine memorial to honor those who fought and died in the World Wars. After that, we walked along the shoreline which was beautiful.
