Today, eleven weary students arrived in Munich. Don't worry, we didn't lose anyone! Our official tour of Europe is over, so we're spending our last few days traveling on our own ... well, kind of. Lisa is visiting her host mother, and Megan is spending time with a friend. The rest of us stayed together.
We checked out of our hostel in Leipzig at 10:00 this morning and waved farewell to Professor Extraordinarious and Megan before heading to the train station. After a mere 5 hour nap, we arrived in the Munich train station. Our walk to the hotel was twenty minutes; after brief confusion concerning how to actually get into the building, we all congratulated ourselves on successful travel without the help of our "grown-up".
Even though we are no longer being led by Frau Thimm, we are continuing to strengthen our math skills. It took us less than 5 minutes at dinner to figure out individual payments on a bill for eleven people (not an easy feat -- our first attempt was Fatal).
The majority of the group is taking a trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial tomorrow. Sarah and Anna will be visiting Vienna, Austria for a day and then stopping in Saltzberg on the way back to Munich (They hope to find "hills alive with the sound of music."). Friday, group members are going to be visiting a BMW factory; and Saturday, David, Dylan and Justin will be catching a soccer game. We'll spend Saturday night in Dusseldorf before hopping on our flight home on Sunday.
Nobody has been severly injured or sent to prison, so we're all still well!
