The students and Herr Blumberg had a great time at the Konisgstuhl – 548m above sea level.

Unfortunately it has rained a lot since the group arrived, but in spite of this, spirits are still high!

Wednesday June 28th

Day Two began with a shower of rain.

Despite this, the students went on a two hour walking tour of Heidelberg, followed by a visit to the Studentenkratzer (student prison).

After a day full of laughter and walking they returned to their host families with a blue sky and sunshine.

Arrival Day: Tues June 27th

Today our student group from San Francisco arrived in Heidelberg.

They had a tour of their host school—the Englisches Institut—and despite being jet-lagged, a few of them managed a visit to the historic old town before meeting up with their host families.

Here they are on the bus from the airport, heading to the beginning of their three week adventure in Heidelberg!

July 7th

What a great Thursday the girls and I had! After lunch, we boarded a bus with 20 other students and headed straight for the train station. About 25 minutes later, we were headed straight to the center of the village, Villefranche. We had an afternoon there of some quality cultural exchanges, and then, of course, some quality time spent on the beach! After returning home, the girls and I ate dinner, showered off the salt water, and headed back into Nice to watch France beat Germany 2-0 in the Eurocup! IMG_1333

July 6th

Today the girls participated in their favorite activity put on by Azurlingua yet: shopping! Wednesday, July 6th marked the first day of city wide sales, so the girls went with a handful of other excited shoppers into Nice this afternoon. With their winnings in hand, we returned to the campus for a relaxing night in!  IMG_1314
