Monday :(

After waking up and getting ready, I headed down the hall for class with Heinz Kroll. Vienna Across the Ages was much more interesting today because we learned about sculptures and how they have changed over time. The athletes that won the Olympic games used to be sacrificed and considered a hero. Years later they started to make sculptures of these heroes that started out as only a shape that looked like a person. They developed into very detailed statues that matched the person’s strength.

Heading into the kitchen from the class room everyone realized that the sink, the refrigerator, and the washing machine were broken. Since it was my day to do laundry I was very disappointed. Everyone had to put their food in the windows to keep it cold.

My scavenger partner and I decided to go out and take pictures of the ATM’s that we had already found previously for our scavenger hunt. We went into an H&M to check out some of the sales to find something that might make us look less American and fit in a little better.

When we were done shopping we headed back to the Theresianum for dinner. There wasn’t a lot of people in the dining room so I expected the students weren’t fans of whatever was going to be served. I understood why no one was at dinner after getting my plate of a cake with rice, apples, and raisins. It was the first time I had cake for dinner and thought it was interesting. I was hungry after not eating dinner and decided to take the microwave into my room (since the whole kitchen had no power) to try some Austrian bagel bites, which were much better than the dinner.

Martin had announced at dinner that the old gym would be open for all of us to use. I was excited to play basketball or soccer with some of the students. I got ready and headed down to the gym expecting to have someone to play with. When I got there no students besides for the ones that came from Franklin Pierce were in the gym. Not one of the students had shown up to play with us.

  1. Samantha,
    I think the reason they didn't come to the gym to play was because they heard rumors about girls who play ferocious rugby & they were afraid!
