Finally the end to Weimar was coming. I was very excited about Munich, and why wouldn't I be, Munich being such an awesome city. But it was an end to Weimar, we almost made it our home. I can't believe we stayed there for a month! Last days with our tutors, last time I'm probably gonna see some of those buildings, etc. The weekend was spent just resting and some studying for the finals. It was a good thing to do before hitting up Munich. We had two finals on Tuesday and a presentation on Wednesday. Everything went fairly decently, and we were all set to go to Munich. We also had a 4th of July party in Germany (yes, I haven't had that even in US!). But this one doubled up as our farewell party too since pretty much everyone that we met during our stay in Weimar showed up at the party. It was a lot of fun, we had red, blue, and white balloons everywhere, even got a group picture with them. We also sang the national anthem and then a few people gave performances of a couple of patriotic songs. It was a great last day.
On Thursday afternoon we all headed out for Munich. It wasn't a bad train ride and I spent most of it watching a movie (thank you ICE trains for those power outlets!). First impression of Munich- RAINS! Ahh, that was disappointing, but thankfully they didn't last too long. But it did rain hard enough that we had to spend 15 minutes under a passage on our way to hostel from the train station, so that our luggage and us of course doesn't get all wet. More about Munich in the next post!
