After arriving back in Germany last week from Africa, I spent a few days relaxing at a Frankfurt hotel. I returned from Africa with a terrible cold which quickly turned into much more and I ended up spending my last 8 days in Germany very sick. With this, it was nice to finally get to relax and just take a breather after so much traveling over not just the past three weeks in Africa, but also over the past seven months! However, being so sick made it so I had to sit out on the last big adventure that I had planned for Germany: Oktoberfest. I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't able to join a few of my newly made German friends on a day trip down to Munich and to Oktoberfest, especially after we had such a great time dirndl shopping together! But, I know that someday I'll get to return and hopefully we can all make it to Oktoberfest together after all! So, as I mentioned, I spent my last week abroad relaxing, getting well, uploading pictures of Africa to Facebook, and of course, practicing my German for my oral test coming up next week. Tonight I went out for my last German dinner with Carolin's parents at a wonderful little restaurant that only serves food specific to the state of Hessen, which we are in. I enjoyed authentic Radler and Käsespätzle for the last time now for a while and we ended the night with some wonderful German dessert! Now, it is off to bed for, hopefully, a good night's sleep and then up early tomorrow morning for a long day of travel back home!
