It’s been a while! How are you? Great, me too.
I post this blog from Kiel, Germany! Where we have been doing an even mix of relaxing and activity for the past 5 days or so. If you went to Willmar Senior High School in the 09-10 school year, you probably remember the beautiful German exchange student we had that year, Nicola Weißer (used the ß key right there, btw) and it is her and her family who have been so gracious as to open up their home to us since we arrived 5 days ago. They have let us sleep on their floors and couches, use their television to watch movies, play insane solos for hours on end with no stopping ever on their guitars, fed us a few delicious meals, taken us to the beach, and a whole of slew of other activitys. But, as with all things life, this must come to an end. That end will come at 4 a.m. tomorrow morning when we board a train that will take us to Berlin, where we will go spend some time in the US embassy trying to get CJ a brand-spankin’-new passport! Fun, right?! I did not mention this in our list of activitys, but while were here, CJ misplaced his bag filled with important belongings in a department store. We scavanged, CJ talked to some mall security higher-ups, but to no avail. We dialed some phone numbers, and CJ eventually found himself making an appointment at the US Embassy in Berlin at 9 a.m. tomorrow where he will hopefully acquire some sort of temporary passport that will allow him to leave the country. Assuming that that whole ordeal doesn’t take an entire day, we will then board another train that will take us to Leipzig, Germany where we will be staying with another friend! I would love to upload pictures of here as well as Amsterdam for all of you to see, but navigating a computer that works in the Deutsch language is difficult, and Nicola has already been kind enough to let me sleep on her couch for 5 nights, and I don’t want to make any difficulty by changing her laptop’s language. Just be patient, maybe I can give them all to you as a thanksgiving gift. Also, because this computer speaks Deutsch, every English word I type appears misspelled and recieves the harsh red underline signifying a typo. So, if there are typos lying somewhere in here, I do not know about them, I cannot fix them, you cannot get mad at me, reader.
We’re watching Princess Diaries right now and I’m tired of switching my attention between this computer and the television, so it’s goodbye for now! We can do dinner when I’m in Leipzig or something.
