We are safely arrived in Mainz, Germany, after a beautiful flight through beautiful weather from Chicago to Montreal to Frankfurt. Upon arrival, day one involved trekking 30 minutes with backpacks to our youth hostel, unloading, then trekking back into Frankfurt, returning for dinner, and hearing our first student presentation. Everyone went to sleep happy and tired after dinner, and we start this morning (Tuesday) with a trip to the Guttenberg Museum in Mainz. Yesterday was Pentecost Monday (Pfingstmontag) so everything was closed, which means we can't get our SIM-cards for international cell phones until this afternoon -- but as soon as we do, we'll call you and post the numbers. Pictures coming soon.
