DAY 20 TO 23 (03.25.13 - 03.28.13): SCHOOL BEGINS, BUT NOT REALLY...

Hello there! Many people have asked me how school has been since I just started on the 25th of March.. Well.. Let's just say school is very different here in Germany. Half of the teachers did not show up to class because of an upcoming holiday called Easter, or because they just didn't feel like coming lol... Easter is a larger holiday than Christmas and breaks begin Thursday and end Tuesday. Anyhoo, my first two classes where my professor showed up ended up being boring because I had to sit through six hours of German lectures, which I don't understand at all. Lesson learned.... Later I bought some art supplies because my dumb self didn't pack anything. Worst decision ever... NEVER AGAIN! Lol... I don't know what I was thinking, but I barely packed anything.. and even forgot to pack my German booklet. Sigh* This is the life of a rebel...

Before my trip to Köln with Bailey and Colleen, I ate at a well-known Trier restaurant called Kartoffelkriste, which has dishes based around the kartoffel (potato). I also went to a Kaufland, which is pretty much Trier's Walmart lol.. It was pretty interesting. It had an escalator that didn't have stairs... Kind of bizarre to me, but I didn't slip off so I suppose it's okay :)

DAY 24 to 25 (03.29.13 - 03.30.13): SHORT TRIP TO KÖLN!

Bailey, Colleen, and I decided to go to Köln for some adventures. I believe the trip is about three or so hours by train.. I never rode in a train before, but I can say that it was very soothing and peaceful.... Somewhat... This old guy I happen to ask to did not speak English and was VERY odd.. He kept looking at me and being obnoxious. He played his radio super loud and made gestures... Later in the train ride he started banging on the chair/random objects. It was disturbing.. I couldn't help but think that he was not straight in the head. He was a nice old guy, but made things a tad bit awkward... ANYWAY when we arrived, we checked into our hotel and visited St. Gereon's Basilica and Great St. Martin's Church. I wasn't expecting much, but was surprised in the end. St. Gereon's basilica was beautiful inside.. I have a thing with vaulted church/cathedral ceilings. In Great St. Martin's Church there was service and I didn't get any photos, but I got a video of the haunting singing.. The acoustics were wonderful and it was kind of creepy, but beautiful at the same time! See for yourself down below! After some sight-seeing, we went to Museum Ludwig, which displayed Modern art work. It was nice seeing art work in person.. It really makes a difference from studying it in class. Museums always make me feel very worn out though, but all I am really doing is walking around... I don't know.. I need better walking shoes. For dinner we ate at a Spanish restaurant that serves tappas called La Bodega, and although I only got two tappas, I was satisfied with both! Wish I had more, but definitely did not want to be a piggy. The next day we had breakfast for the first time at a McDonald's, which was surprisingly good. I was originally trying to avoid McDonald's, but it was interesting how the menu differs, for instance they had a McCurrywurst on the lunch menu. Afterwards, we visited the Römisch-Germanisches and the Kölner Dom, which is the cathedral that Köln is known for! I didn't bring my camera because both Colleen's and mine had little to no battery and my phone also had low batteries. However, since I had a higher battery life for my camera than Colleen, I let her use my battery to take photos! The photos do no justice to the beauty of the Dom itself and especially to its interior.
