Day 20 and 21: The Magical Land of Flowers and Butterflys

WEDNESDAY:

School.

In the afternoon, Neil, Kaitie, Sarah, and I went to Mainau. Mainau is an island in the Bodensee that is basically a giant park/garden. It was insanely hot and we sweated quite a bit, but the flowers were beautiful!

Afterwards, we went a drank a beer by the Bodensee. The weather had cooled off a bit, and it was perfect.

We accidentally missed the last regular train, so we had to wait until 10PM for another train to come. Not fun. Ended up getting some McDonald’s for dinner. 😦 McDonald’s outside of the States is really expensive—2.30 EUR for french fries!! Not worth it FYI.

I then came home, did some homework, and went to bed.

THURSDAY:

School. Wochentest—which I obviously didn’t study for since I got stuck in Mainau. Though luckily, the material wasn’t difficult! Several students gave presentations in class today. David, the Swiss guy, did a presentation on Swiss Army knives (Victorinox). You can buy one with over 80 different parts, including a flash light!

I cooked dinner: curried basmati rice with veggies. YUMM.

And, it is finally raining! YAY. Now hopefully it will cool off. 🙂

Tschüs!
