Thursday, March 4th
This was the first "real" day back from our amazing trip to Athens, Greece. Wednesday was a day to relax and to also get back into "Vienna" mode, if you will. Thursday was the start of classes again for those of us who have Statistics; the rest got to sleep in. Our transition back into Vienna was slow because we had to come back to depressing cold weather, when we had all just been in beautiful, sunny 70 degree Athens. Even though we all may not like the weather, Vienna is our home, and we are all settled in. We also know how to get around the city pretty well now. Thursday was also our second class of German, and it went very well. We learned greetings, and we had to pick a partner to write a quick description about to be presented to the class. Even though we have only had a few German classes, I have found it helpful to the point where I am picking it up rather quickly. I think the hardest thing is trying to interact with the people and understanding what the cashiers say to you for the price of your order. If they did not have the digital display, we would all be in trouble! After German class we had the pool available to us, from 8:30pm to 10:30pm. Mostly everyone on the floor took advantage of it, and we all went down to swim in the indoor pool. Besides that, nothing else is really new. We all are very excited to start traveling again. Traveling through Europe will be an experience that we will never forget, and we will have photographs to help us look back and tell the story.
