Elephants and Camels
there are elephants in my front yard. No, I'm not kidding. And I woke up to the sound of a heard of horses and poneys. This may sound like the begining of a story, but its not, there is literally a circus camped out practically in the front yard! Across the street is a huge field and the circus has come to town. I don't know if we are getting any lions or bears or something, but so far there are camels, dalmation dogs, horses, ponies, and elephants. I can see some of them from the house. I took some pictures and maybe I can get them posted tomorrow. Tonite my host dad and I, and Diane (from S. africa) and a new mexican exchange student are going to a soccer game in Bremen. Germany vs South Africa
School is going better. French is my favoirte class because I can understand it. Maybe I can even keep up enough to take the tests! I have a presentation in 2 weeks on Martinique.
Monday I move to the Hoyers house. So, I have been starting to think about what and how to pack my stuff. My new address is...
c/o Hoyer Familie
Germany (Mom!... send my stuff to this address please!)
Yea, so I'll be about 7 minutes by bike further from town (Esens) but its not that big of a deal. I'm actually closer to school. Yesterday I lost the key to my bike lock and today one of the school teachers had to break the lock off so I could use it again. Its 15 minutes to the Hedlefs (where I am now) by foot but only 5 min by bike. and btw... its really hard to find gnomes in germany. You wouldn't think so, but it is. Maybe I'm just in the wrong part of the country. lol
