Guten Tag!

Just a quick note...
I arrived safely here in Germany on Monday afternoon--my flight over was great! I landed in Frankfurt at 10:00am local German time, had a 3 hour layover and then landed in Basel, Switzerland at 1:45 local time; BFA is just a short 25 minute drive from Basel. I am just getting over jet lag. :)
My days so far have been filled with German class in the morning, and then in the afternoons we practice driving around the surrounding towns and get acquainted with the culture, many driving laws/signs, and a manual transmission. I have to give the credit to my Dad for teaching me to drive a manual shift--I have only stalled out a couple of times and I even drove on the Audubon today!
I hope to post some pictures soon--it is absolutely beautiful here!
Thank you so much for all of your prayers!
