I will live as an only child, because my older brother is going off to college after I return. Here, I had the experience of having a sister who became one of my closest friends. Megan helped me adapt to my host community. On the first day of school, she showed me around and introduced me to her friends.
It has also been exciting to see with what interest the Americans are following the changes in all of Europe, especially Germany. I have found that, generally, a reunified Germany is favored here.
The opening of the inner German border in November is considered a historical moment, and I am personally delighted about that development. It is a strange feeling to leave Germany and observe one of the most dramatic times in its history from another country, and then, after 11 months, return to a changed homeland.
I will be able to share a great time spent in the United States with my family and friends. It is interesting to meet people from different countries, and it is also very important to establish international friendships.
