My last day in America started off like all the other normal school days. I got dressed, went to the bathroom and then I packed the rest of my stuff. I put it in front of the door where my host dad later picked it up to put it in the trunk.

Our journey to the new continent ended with another trip across the big ocean and a lot of tears. The four weeks were over faster than we all thought at the beginning of our voyage. We were all sad about leaving our new friends and families, because we had a really nice time in the US. No matter in whose eyes we looked, everybody cried except for Niklas.

At 8:00 am our schoolbus with our German group left the capital of Indiana - Indianapolis! It's Wednesday, 05 April and very stormy and rainy. Our first stop was the famous Lucas Oil Stadium where the Colts football team plays.

On Saturday, I woke up early because Sherry had a Softball game and they had to get up early. I was really tired this day because we played “just dance” until 11 p.m. the last day.

In contrast to our German friends, over here we had a two week break. We had lots of opportunities and since Levi, my host brother, has a car, we drove around a lot. Furthermore, I also met some friends and we did things like rollerskating (that I totally failed), movie and game nights, bowling or just hanging out.

Today was our farewell party. Everyone did a great job and it was an amazing show. My job was to host the show and guide the audience through our program together with Cora.

We did a lot of fun things during spring break. We drove 22 hours to Florida/ Fort Meyers Beach.

Slowly it is getting closer to our departure... Today we had our farewell-party. It started at 2pm, but the participants (all the German students) needed to be at school at 1:30pm.

In the second week, my host family and I went to a bowling center in Anderson. The bowling here is different to our bowling at home because you have more lines in America.

Today was our second trip to Indianapolis and our first stop was the Lucas Oil stadium which is the home of the Indianapolis Colts.

Today we had to wake up earlv for breakfast. Yesterday I had to wake up early too and we didn’t go to bed that early so I was super tired. The breakfast was better than I expected.
