Our German theater trip was excellent. Although different, I really enjoyed the variety of German theater we saw. It is clearly very different for Americans to go to the theater there than native Germans and it was interesting trying to figure out how we were supposed to act and think in response to a piece. Some shows here require the audience to reflect, but in Germany, every show requires that. Everyday provided a fun new experience and I truly felt like I was on vacation, but still being productive. It was also nice to spend the time with people my age and to forge experiences together. I was worried in going back to Germany ( I lived there for a year) that my warm feelings for the country would have changed. But nothing has. It is still my second home and a completely natural environment.
I can't imagine having done less on the trip. I've learned so much by going to Dachau, other museums, wandering around, and even the Alps, that I can't imagine not being able to have gone!
