Hello From Germany

Hello everyone from Germany. We arrived Saturday evening in Hamburg. We drove around the city a bit. Then went to Sinje's and had dinner with her parents. Sunday morning we went to a Fish market. They have everything there. We bought pastries, french fries and a sandwich to take on the train. Then we got on the train to go to Osterode. Ann-Nika and her father picked us up and we went to her house to meet her family. Then we went to walk around the city of Osterode. They have fantastic old buildings there. We had gelato. That is great. Then today we went to the Harz mountains. We hiked a bit, and looked at the views. Then we went to a lake, went up a ski lift to the second highest mountain, climed the ski jump tower and went to a dam. Then we went to have lunch at a secenic overlook. We did many things that I thought I would never do because I am afraid of heights. "We also saw where the border between East and West Germany was. We stopped at a glass factory also, but could not take a tour. This evening we went to a grocery market.

Tomorrow we will tour a mine.
Joshua told me today via email that the kitties miss us a lot. He said they are following him around

More in the coming days.
