kid - can't live with them and can't live without them
This experience will either turn you off teaching or else turn you onto working with kids with special needs. Is there anyone around to give you guys directions or are you all thrown into the room and then you figure out what to do? Reminds me of the time when my friend worked at a camp for kids with disabilities - she was in charge of two childeren and at the end of each evening, she was so exhausted she'd hit the sack and sleep until the next morning. Her kids were the ones noted for plugging toilets, cutting up clothes, putting salt in the sugar bowl, moving the outhouse over, you name it they probably did it. So, unless they are worse then this, you've got angels. No sympathy here Julie. Enjoy!

hiding out from "strange men"
When you get home ask Rosalie about her experiences in Paris - she spent a day hiding out in the partk from some guy who wanted to take her to his apartment so he could cook for her!

Compulsory visits
On our visit we read a letter from the camp commandant who was apologizing to the villagers because his soldiers had hunted down deers. He promised to discipline them for their behaviour - nothing about the fact that people were being exterminated. We visited thinking we would have a better undnerstanding of the attrocities committed and left just as confused. As Rosalie says, every country has a museum dedicated to teaching the public about the horrors of war and we still don't learn.

No, I didn't see the video. Our guide was kind of hurrying us along, so we didn't have much time to look at the displays. I would've cried for sure with a video. I almost cried just looking at some of the displays in the gas chamber and crematorium.

Having been to Ludwig's castle (Neuschwanstein?) I can tell you that you're not really missing anything. Impressive castle and cool stories, but if you've ever been to a (any) historic castle, you definitely chose a better option. VERY jealous!

It was cloudy the day I visited Dachau, too. Did you watch the video? By the end, a lot of the room full of tourists was crying silently.

Litres of beer
I definitely remember those beer "mugs". What amazed me were the ladies that brought them to your table. These little German women who could carry six full steins in each hand - full. Crazy. Can't imagine what they would have weighed. mind you that was during Oktoberfest so maybe they called in the heavy artillery. Oh the Haufbrauhaus.

church of bones
Cool! Maybe we can blow up the pictures and use them to decorate for Halloween! How odd that the monks would think to do that...isn't it a tad disrespectful? But very creative!

Ottawa bilingual
Ottawa is bilingual? Wee-wee.

I actually didn't find out about Farrah until late last night when I happened to see a newspaper - all the radio over here was about MJ, and even in the paper it was like 4pgs of him, for a paragraph on her. Pfft. And Ottawa is generally bilingual... or at least functionally bilingual. ;)

Haha, only you.

so... you didn't stay in Brussels?? What about the peeing boy?? The chocofigures of the peeing boy T___T *rejected* And omg.. don't even get me started on UofO.. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhh. I swear, I almost had an aneurysm at work on the 22nd/23rd. Anyway, so I was listening to the radio at work today, and (nearly) every song was MJs. Newspapers were: Big Headline=Michael Jackson, followed by a small blurb on Farrah Fawcett. Just a quick question, how come I was unaware that Ottawa is pretty bilingual (its University seems to prefer one language over the other)?
