June 18th, 2011: Day One in Germany by Bryce Boone

Guten tag,

Today was an eventful day. It was out first full day in Munich, Germany. We started the day at the BMW museum around 11 o’clock. We had an hour to browse the new BMW models and current technology. Several of us tried to win prizes by a putting contest. After no luck at the putting green we ate at the BMW museum.  After that we went to the 1972 Olympic stadium.  It was a very modern design for the time but the sightseeing was cut short by pouring rain. After the stadium, we started the BMW museum tour. We saw the entire history of BMW. The old cars were very cool and well worth seeing. The only person who didn’t like the museum too much was our one and only girl, Bri. She stated that she rather she the Ford or Dodge museum. Who can blame her? What’s better than good ole American build cars? After the tour we had a short break time to get ready for our lesson in the traditional Bavarian dance, the Schuplatter. This literally translates into shoe dance. We had no idea what we were getting into. This was one of the most fun things we have done so far. We learned the basic steps and then we learned one of the easiest dances. Everyone had a blast. We even showed them our dance of “sawing varsities horns off.” Needless to say, we had a great time. When we got back to the hotel we were all to tired to do anything else. The shoe dance wore us out! Until next time, auf wiedershen!
