Wow, it’s been two weeks already, and interterm has been hectic. Who knew having one class for a whole month would be so full of reading and lectures? It has not been all bad, there has been fun and games as well.
3 on 3 basketball intramurals has begun and the race is on to find the best 3 on 3 teams–men and women–on the Bethel campus. Also basketball has heated this below-freezing winter right up with both the women’s and men’s teams in top competing spots in the conference.
Greetings from Karlsruhe, Germany! It’s a ten-hour bus ride from Leipzig (Leipzig did not have free internet, and this place only has it for twenty minutes at a time in the lobby, so I must be quick), and we also stopped at Buchenwald concentration camp. That hour-and-a-half stop on the way here deserves far more time than I can give it in a blog, so it will have to wait.
Hello friends. Currently I am sitting in my hostel/hotel room in Leipzig, Germany, after another long day of traveling and singing. To be honest, I never really envisioned myself being in a position to travel around Europe with a group of my friends, staying in nice hotels and singing to people all over the continent. So far it has been a fantastic journey, albeit very cold and snowy. We have both of those conditions back in Kansas, but the cold here bites a little bit harder and there is definitely more snow here right now than we probably get in an entire winter in Kansas, and it snowed every day for the first 4 or so days that we’ve been here.
So right now I am sitting in the lobby of a Leipzig youth hostel. That’s right, folks…I’m also on choir tour! It has been wonderful so far! We have been in Berlin the past few days, and we just arrived in Leipzig today and gave a concert tonight–our fourth one in the week and a half we’ve been in Europe. I haven’t had much of an opportunity to see Leipzig yet–we’ll get a tour tomorrow–so I’ll focus mainly on Berlin.
As the title suggests, we have made it to Berlin. What I have to say next I will type very slowly so you are sure to completely fathom the significance.
Did you get that? Good. Literally the only bad thing about anything here is that the weather is terrible and cash exchange places are closed on Sunday leaving me euro-less the day before the night of the opera.
