Meet the mayor!

On Friday, June 22nd, we met one of the mayors of Krefeld (their system involves multiple mayors), who invited us for breakfast and told us plenty of interesting things about Krefeld, its art and theater scene, wresting and underwater rugby (which none of us knew existed but all are dying to watch now). Our crowd of extremely well-dressed students had prepared questions for the mayor and - after some initial shyness - interacted on Krefeld's political scene as if they had never done anything else. We teachers were pretty impressed, and, admittedly, quite a bit proud of them! At the end of our visit we got a lovely book about the city, took a picture of the students with the mayor and signed the city's guest book.
