Farewell party and fishing

The party took place in the auditorium from the Alexandria Monroe High School. We had a 40-minutes-program, which was like a talent show with dances, songs and a short theatre. Of course we also had a great moderation! During the farewell speech everyone got at least a little bit sad, because we had to think about the amazing time we had in America and that we have to leave soon… Then we gave our prepared “Thank you”-cards and a flower to our host families and everyone said “Thank you” individually to their host families. I saw many eyes filled with tears.

After that, we went to the cafeteria, where we could eat some food and watch the pictures which were taken from each family and the German student, so we remembered the amazing time again. After the party I went fishing with my host family (it was my first time fishing) and it was a lot of fun. It was pretty windy, but it was also so warm, that we stayed at the lake for more than one hour. The day was really good and I think everyone had fun!

Thank you for everything, we really had an amazing time here. Everyone met new friends, found a new family and made a lot of new experiences. I am really sure that I am not the only one, who wants to come back.
