I went back home one mounth ago . With the europeans classes, we went for one week on our penpal ' family in Berlin . For me it was a bit different , I didn' t know my future host family before the trip . And when we arrived next to their school after 22 hours in the coach , it was the suprise !!!
My penpal ' s name is Gesa . She is 14 and she have a sister who is 18. But I didn't meet her because she was in Australia for the year so I slept in her bedroom. Her parents are teachers and with the family, we spoke french. They were very good at french almost bilingual !The meals delicious but the meal times were strange .. One day , we began to eat at 4 PM !! During our free time with our families , th firts week-end Gesa and her father took me to a special zoo !
Some photos of the zoo , a kangaroo and an ostrich ! I love her face !
The rest of the week was tiring but I discoverd many things . The first day ,we vivited the Est of Berlin by coach and we stopped next to the East Side Gallery .
The evening, french and german pupils went to a bowling party and we had a great time even if I lost the party !
The second day , we saw the east of Berlin before the visit of the Olympic Stadium where took place the football final of France against Italy in 2006 ! And the afternoon we did a ballad in the Charlottenburg garden.
The third day, we passed the morning in the Ravensbruck ' s concentration camp .
The french memorial in the Ravensbruck' s concentration camp.
The fourth day , we saw the Cecilienhof and , after a free time in the town center, we visied the Sans Souci castle . The evening a party was organized for all pupils and teachers ! everydody danced, ate and drink ! There was no alcohol ;-)
The last day it was a free time in Kurfurstendam street during 2 hours and a half . the afternoon ,we left Berlin with the coach for 22 hours .... This Berlin trip was my favourite and we discovered lot of places .. It was very interesting and happily !
