North Sea

Hi all

We went to the North Sea today. We were the only ones not wearing coats. The temp was 70 and very windy. I thought it was great.
The other photo is us in front of what remains of the Berlin Wall.

Dani, Sinje, Anna, Izzy Hamburg

Hello From Hamburg, Germany

Hi all
Yesterday we took a harbour tour of Hamburg and walked around the city a while. We saw a documentary of the firestorm of Hamburg during WW2. That was unbelieveable the destruction. I had never thought about what it was like here before. The city is neat, but too many people for me.
Today we are going to see Schenefeld (I probably did not spell that correctly).
Last night some of Sinje's friends came over to "speak" English with us. However the girls did not speak much English. LOL. The photo is of Sinje and 3 of her friends that were here last night.
The second photo if from St. Nicholi Church tower.
Hope everyone is doing well. I miss all the email chatter.
We go home on Sunday. We have to be at the airport at 5:30 AM.
I am enjoying my trip, but I am ready to get back to my sewing machine. I have some ideas floating in my head for Christmas presents, and I am anxious to get started.
Chat more later

Happy Birthday Bruce

Today we leave Osterode and go back to Hamburg,

We have had a fun filled week, and I do mean filled. LOL. We saw a castle in Kassel, we saw a large bird show, we saw a mine, we saw the mountains, we saw a museum about the East/West border, we saw Goslar, a very old town, we saw a farming museum, we saw the country side, the dome at Cologne, the old town at Dusseldorf, met our student for next year and many other things that I am forgetting to write down now.

Next week we will see the Hamburg area.

We have very much enjoyed our stay here and meeting Ann-Nika's family. It completes the circle for me to meet her family. It will be hard to say good-bye to her again though. You get very attached to these kids. They really become part of your family.
