In other news, I enjoyed the autumn holidays (we had two weeks off from school) – we went to a friend’s birthday party and another friend’s wedding near Stuttgart the first weekend.
On the second weekend my sister and her boyfriend from Hamburg visited us. Together we went to the Rhine and visited Boppard (where we rode the chair lift to the Vierseenblick which offers a great view over the Rhine valley) and the Marksburg castle (good website if you turn off the sound, check out the panorama photos) which dates back to the 14th century.
During the last week I spent two days in Stuttgart visiting with a friend. But now I’ve been back in school for a week and will have three math tests to grade by tomorrow, two of which I’ll have to finish preparing now.
The weather has been really nice in the past couple of days – if you want to know how nice, check out André‘s photos from today! I especially like the peacock butterfly and the dandelion.
