Our time in Horb-am-Neckar came to a memorable close with a written final exam, followed by a party that included our instructors and our host families. Each class prepared a few skits or songs, and a few students performed songs ad hoc, inspired by the cheers and laughter that followed each close of the curtain. Our class, Zimmer 9, performed two skits, videos of which can be found in my previous post titled “The End/Beginning.” The party was held in the very same room in which we had, just six weeks prior, sat in anxious anticipation of meeting the families with whom we would live for the next month and a half. This time, however, the room was buzzing with excitement over our successful completion of our language program.
Here are a few photos from the last week in Horb, as well as a couple videos of the skits that our class put on for our going away party at Hermann-Hesse-Kolleg.
It is my last week in Horb-am-Neckar, and I don’t think time has ever flown so swiftly past me. It is outrageously difficult to express my feelings for this captivating town, this beautiful country, and these unforgettable people. I have made some memories here that will stay with me for the rest of my life, and I am sad to see the end of these short six weeks fast approaching. This town will be a home to me for as long as I have the ability to foresee.
I have been posting mostly photos of locations and things, so I thought I’d post some photos of myself and the people that I have been studying with!
I thought one or two people might want to see a bit more of where I’m living at the moment, so during my lunch break today I went on a walk and took some photos. Enjoy!
