On Wednesday, March 15th we went to Indianapolis. At first we visited the capitol. After it we went to “Beef and Boards”. It is a dinner theatre. You could eat there and watch a play afterwards. We watched “Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat”. 

Today, we met at 7:45 am at school. Than we took our bus to Indianapolis. We arrived at the State Building in Indianapolis after probably an hour. 

Today I woke up early. After having breakfast and waiting until it was 7 am we went to school. When we went in I saw some of the others. Then Brittany my host partner introduced me to a lot of people. After that we met in the library. There we got all important information and our t-shirts and diaries. Also we tried to open the lockers. Yeah we tried because only half of us could opened their lockers. For third period our partners taken us in class. First I had German class with five other Germans. It was very funny because Mrs. Withers the German teacher is happy all the time and she is a little bit crazy. 

Today was a busy day. We met at 7:45 am in the school because a bus took us to Indianapolis. The ride took 75 minutes. When we were in the building, we sat in a big room with 8 statues. A woman was introducing them to us and then she showed us the rest of the building. The tour was interesting but also a bit boring, because it was like in a big museum tour. When we were in the big conference room, I liked the chairs with these you were able to drive through the room and lean back and lean back and relax. 

Today we had our first day in school in Alexandria, Indiana. We got to school by car within a few minutes. Walking into school I got a bit nervous. What would it be like? Could I find everything? Those and many more questions were going through my head.

Today is Tuesday and it was our first time teaching the little kids in the intermediate school. Before our trip to America, we had to prepare five lessons with things we want to teach them, for example we had to prepare worksheets. Also Mrs. Rohde told us we have to teach a 4th or a 5th grade class. We teach in groups of two or three and each lesson is 30 minutes long.

For me, the trip to the U.S. started at 5:00 o’clock in the morning. Unexpectedly, I had miraculously managed to sleep well the night before, but still, under normal circumstances, that would not have been enough sleep. But these were no normal circumstances.
