|Monday was a beautiful day in Buxtehude. I first came to this town in 1994 and this is my 7th visit but first without being part of the student exchange. We went to school in the morning where I met a few colleagues from previous exchanges. Melanie was a part of the 2004 exchange and Kristina was in 2013. I walked through the town and remembered previous visits. I got my lunch at the train station-a doner kebap. Then I got an ice cream. Back at school Herman and I watched the teachers play soccer at 6 PM. They play every Monday and in the early exchanges I would join in. After it is a beer an laughter in the locker room. I enjoyed talking with some younger teachers and especially with Bernd Lawes. I have known him since the first exchange and 2 of his sons were participants in 1994 and 1996. The one is the selfie in the previous entry as we were going into the Hamburg stadium for the soccer match. It was a great day!
