It was the arrival day, but just the Italians and the Spanish had arrived, they arrived on Sunday. We met the Netherlands and the English at 1 o’clock after the lessons in the forum. We had lunch together and so we also made new friends from different countries. Then, we were divided in 6 groups to do a treasure hunt. It took 2 hours and we were walking to different sights in Lemgo like the ‘Junkerhaus’ or the St. Nicolai church. With this game all the students learned something about Lemgo: The Germans learned more things about their town and the exchange partners learned how the life in Lemgo and the culture of the town is. Teachers and teenagers were very excited about the new experience and all were interested in that.
At 4 o’clock we finished the game and went to the forum again. There, the parents were waiting for us to go home. Then at home some students watched films, others went cycling or finding out what their exchange partners hobbies were. And at last the host families ate something with their guests and then the guests (they were very tired because of the long journey to Germany) went to bed…
