October 19, 2005
I nearly forgot to write about an important event on our floor:
Last Sunday, we had a cool Fiesta Mexicana in our kitchen! Some people had the brilliant idea to prepare delicious mexican food for 20 people and others prepared stylish sombreros. I was in the third category (the ones who enjoyed the evening…). Nevertheless, I had the task to take a group picture… this is the result:
Again I am a little late to report about last weekend…
Anyway… Last Saturday, Silvi and I joined a group from the Chaplaincy to a trip to a tour along a nice Canal with lots of locks and to Stratford afterwards. We started at 10am and soon arrived at the canal, where we walked for about one and a half hours. It was amazing, how many locks there were! We saw several boats working their way up and spending at least 5–10mins per lock…
After a nice lunch we went to Stratford, where we spent about 2 hours – we went to Holy Trinity Church, where we saw Shakespeare's tomb and afterwards to his birthplace.
You can see some pictures in my gallery of this nice excursion!
This week has not been very exciting up to now. Besides another firealarm, there is nothing special to note… Therefore, I am looking forward to the next weekend, when I will make a trip to Manchester.
