Hello, Germany, I have missed you!

Today was a travel day. We left Prague relatively early and spent the majority of the day on public transportation of some sort traveling through the Czech Republic and into Germany. The moment we crossed the border, I felt like I was at home. It was so nice to see the familiar landscape and rooftops and countryside. Once we arrived to Germany, we had to transfer to a small bus to get where we were going...
Trรถchtelborn. This sleepy little village has a population of 340 people. Someone met us at the bus stop and took us to the house where we will be staying the next few days. We got to know our host family over some cake and coffee after they assured us that the church would still be standing in an hour and that we didn't need to rush. After this, we went to the church and I practiced and worked out registrations. It was wonderful to be playing an instrument like this again. After a good practice, we headed back for dinner, which was served outside. We ate slowly and talked as we got to know each other a bit more. We sat outside late into the night, enjoying the sounds of the birds and other wild animals as well as their very crazy cat, Willy, who not only jumped from tree to tree, but brought us a mouse that he had caught. It was wonderful to just sit and relax, and I am looking forward to a busy day tomorrow!
