Dodge City (by Hannah F. / Kathi H. / Lena K.)

One of the highlights of our time in Kansas was our afternoon in Dodge City. First of all we went with Becky and Gail to a photographer where we made a Western shooting. We had a lot of fun and in the end we had some great pictures. After that we visited the Boothill museum which showed us the lifestyle in the old Wild West. Later we got a privat tour through the jailhouse of Ford County because the brother of Gail, whose name is Bill, is the sheriff. It was very interesting. Because it was 9/11 we visited a memorial in a park. Everyone of us got to hold a flag and it was a great experience. In the end of the day we got some tacos at the taco truck and for dessert we had some ice cream. It was a great day with a lot of good memories!

Homecoming Dance – A Night to Remember – written by Patrick S.

The Homecoming Dance is one of the most important events for every American student. It is a normal ball dance in the gym where people dance and have fun. That’s why it’s our mission to be part of the Homecoming Dance this year. The gym was decorated with strings of light and other decorations like balloons which created an amazing atmosphere. Furthermore we had a delicious meal and a lot of candy. A lot of photos were taken. All of the American students showed us the typical line dance. That was fun!

Lake Wilson – Burgers & Boarding, what a BLAST

Traditioneller Start des Austauschprogramms ist ein  Wochenende am Lake Wilson, einem sehr schön gelegenen Speichersee im Norden von Kansas. 

Während Becky, Gail, Skyler und Dave uns kulinarisch mit Burgern, Hot Dogs, Salaten, Cookies und S’mores verwöhnten, war Brad unermüdlich mit seinem Boot unterwegs – hatten unseren Spaß auf dem Wakeboard und vor allem mit dem Tube.
