Oh dear. What have I been doing for 22 days? doesnt seem like that much, i suppose, though there was a lot. Ben sazs that it seems like the activities are just starting and i agree. It seems like there really is something to do everyday. for instance...
My friends have been telling me about their play "Ende Gut, Alles Gut" for months, and finally came may 19, and finally i recieved my front row tickets to the PiPaPo theater in bensheim (somewhat reminiscent of 123) I even went to Frankfurt and bought the english version, namely "Alls Well that Ends Well". And it is actually a Year of Schiller, officially in Germany, and STILL they managed to sneak Shakespeare onto the German Stage.
here we can see the 3 most entertaining parts. Hellen (played by Inga) the jester(suzanne) and Parole (Nikolai). inga and nikolai take their acting very seriously and want to cotinue in that career direction.
But Sven was good too. Very noble looking.
Taking the bow.
Sven, Niels, and Sebastian in their Smokings
Oh yea, the famous Russians did reunite for 10 days. I waited in the airport, as earlier reported and they were there, the last to come out, having lost a suitcase of presents. LOTS of presents... the first thing my dad said, "look at his pants!" meaning my golf pants that i bought. but they are smiling big in this photo. my mom says she couldnt believe it, to see me again. it had felt like forever. and actually, we didnt know what to talk about in the car. hah.
we rented a car and drove to Brussels. My father had a meeting there for the transplant team. in an apartment on this square actually. Brussels is very pretty but also sort of dirty. Good museums and expensive fish and we had waffels but no chocolate.
Jay came with us. that is the last time that i will see him, i think. maybe forever. nah, not forever.
my mom has become a very avid photographer. and a funny one.
real parents and fake parents. who is who? decide please. look at these names: B�rbel, Ivan, Alla, Joachim. (my new family is hilarious. dont worry, I am very very happy there.)
We went to Frankfurt too, and remember that Nutella cafe that was always closed? yea well it turns out that it has moved or closed or whatever but look! its not there anymore! ahh! its just a telephone store! mystery solved. the man in the store is waving.
Good bye, see you in a month.
The day my parents left, an American girl came to stay with us for a month and a half. My host mom takes us out sometimes now to see stuff. this is the castle above bensheim and i have now been there only twice. teenagers, psh. it is a BURG and so means that a knight lived here.
Where the knight lived.
And the view of the Rhein Flatlands. B�rbel and Tabitha. B�rbel is pointing out the invading forces.
And the Odenwald (a big famous forest) and the general direction of our house in the mountains that run east.
My host sister Bernadette (not pictured) is busy celebrating her graduation. it is sort of like our graduation except that families and parents are more involved. we are at the Ball. Jacintha and Dominik, my other siblings.
Well, he does have a pimped out car.
