I already thought the summer is coming, but no.. A couple of weeks ago the weather was great, just like the Finnish summer, but now it’s like our autumn in Finland. It’s cold, dark and rainy. :/
Week ago, on Easter I went to Frankfurt for two days to see my mother. She fly there from Helsinki and we spent a couple of days together there. Frankfurt was a nice city. Different than the other German cities I have seen, there were so many high buildings. Because it was Easter was many places closed but we had enough to do. We went on a cruise on the river Main, walked around the city and of course ate a lot!
We came also to Stuttgart and Esslingen for one night, so that she could see the place where I’m living. We ate in a typical German restaurant and I showed her around. We also went to The Württemberg State Museum, where there were old things from the region.
On Friday I had a totally German seminar which lasted the whole day, from 10 until 17. It was called “Let’s play music”. I had some difficulties with the language, but I think I understood most of the things. We were only 13 students and a teacher, so it was nice to work in the group because it was not that big. We made some body percussion, sang, and played different instruments. From the seminar I got some ideas which I could take advantage of in the kindergarten..
On Saturday we had a trip to Neuschwanstein, that is a well-known castle in Bayern. The castle was under renovating and the weather was not the best, but anyway it was a nice excursion. I had imagined the castle would be even more amazing than what it really was.
In the evening we went out to Stuttgart with a big group of other exchange students. Partying in Stuttgart is nice, but it’s so hard to get home from there. We took the night bus and there were just too many people in the bus. Next time I think I’ll wait for the first train to leave… Sunday just went resting. And now I think I should concentrate a bit in my homeworks..
