Everyone was tired from the Wine Festival the night before, and we had a long bus ride to Dresden. On the way there, we stopped at the previous border between East and West Germany, watched a video, and ate currywursts (bratwursts smothered in curry sauce).
After a quick stop at the hostel in Dresden, we went on a walking tour of Dresden’s old town, got a Czech dinner courtesy of UCLA, and went back to the hostel to rest for another day of travel.
What’s been going on in last week’s classes:
German 1: We had our first test on Monday. We’ve started to learn tremendous amounts of vocabulary and also how to finally start to piece together sentences.
German 102: Munich was very much the starting point for Adolf Hitler. We learned about his rise to power and how The Weimar Republic came as well as the artistic movements that followed it.
