Well I have a lot to tell, too much to tell on this blog. I'm back from Germany, which was great. The best part was just hanging with Dan and the other volunteer Ben. I loved being able to relax, grill out every night, try some German beer and bratwurst. We went into the city a couple of times to watch the games and to do some typical tourist type things (see the gate, the memorials, parliament building) Berlin is a crazy city since the World Cup is in the country. I loved just walking around and seeing people from different countries supporting their team.

The weather was perfect and I can't wait to go back in July when us three are going to drive around Europe for about 2.5 weeks.

Unfortunately the U.S. wasn't able to have any success in their game. I waited 4 years for that game and they decided to play terrible and got thrashed 3-0! Oh well, they can still advance but they need a big wins against Italy!

My trip back was eventful because the plane was delayed due to a stewardess getting sick. My train stopped on the tracks because a guy committed suicide by jumping off a bridge onto the rail.

I love the fact that everyday there are 3 football games on! We have a television at work so I ended up seeing all the games yesterday, whereas on my days off I don't feel like sitting and watching that much T.V. (although some of the games are so good i can't pass them up!)

No longer am I here then I am away again. Next weekend I am heading up to the Isle of Skye with some of the volunteers. If the U.S. advances in the World Cup I'll be spending the one day searching for a place to watch to football matches! Then the following week I leave for the Europe trek.

That's all for now
