Happy 4th of July!!!

Dear Family and Friends,

we wish you a Happy 4th of July from the old world!

We spent a lovely afternoon on the grounds of the Castle Linn in Krefeld (here is a link:, visiting the castle and celebrating the day by dressing in blue, white and red (including many of the host-parents and host-siblings), eating a gigantic buffet with lots of German and American dishes, playing football, and generally having a lot of fun. We had our big, one-time-only exception to rule #1 (Don't Speak English!) by singing the national anthem of the United States of America, and I must say, we did a pretty good job at it, too! One of our host-mothers took great pictures, and so here it is: Happy 4th of July!
