Today is Diana's last day in Germany. She will be leaving early tomorrow morning (their time) to take a short flight from Hamburg to Frankfurt, then a non-stop from Frankfurt to Portland. Tonight is their "American Evening" where our kids do a performance for their German Host Families (like a little talent show). Diana has a group doing a sketch her dad told her about. Hopefully it will run well & get a good reception :)
All the American students also brought something (or parts of something) to make as a dessert. Diana only needed to bring Graham Cracker crumbs, because they will have all the other ingredients to make a New York Style cheesecake. The German Cheesecake is made with Quark which is a very different taste from Philadelphia cream cheese <-- yeah - they have Philly over there too. I'm really looking forward to hearing all about the trip, and seeing all the photos. Diana would like to create a journal blog about her trip, so she'll do that once she's home again. It will be invite-only, however, because while I trust my daughter, I am also a little protective right now. :) If you're interested, shoot her an email once I post the link, and she can add you in. I absolutely love this photo of Diana & Leonie. They were at a Knight's Castle, role-playing being peasants in medieval times. They were split into 3 teams (all wearing different little hoods) and I guess Diana did pretty well at balancing on a log & making her opponent fall off. I'm gonna put that down to fencing training, plus an Opa who used to do the tightrope.
She'll be in the air for most of the day, so please say a couple of prayers or think positive thoughts for her "Uneventful" flights! Thanks!
