Hallo Uelzen

After coming back from Copenhagen, Jette, Jarno, Edelgard, Zach and I headed to Uelzen to see the Hundertwasser Bahnhof.  The renovation of the train station was designed by Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser, which translates to peaceful realm, rainy day, dark colors, hundred waters.  He is a contemporary Austrian artist who has renovated buildings all around the world.  We have seen a few in Germany.  Although I am not a big fan of his style, our tour was amazing and his design philosophy is inspiring.  He included some themes throughout all of his architecture: dark colors, organic form work, a play between civilization and nature, individualism and no straight lines.  Our tour guide was great.  He works as a professional translator and suggested the website iTalki to improve language proficiency.  Have you heard of it before?  It seems like a good idea!  After the train station we walked through a nearby park.  We sat down to eat lunch and the funniest thing happened.  Zach ordered a cheeseburger and you can see what he got above.  How great is that?  After a walk around Uelzen, we headed back to Jette's parents house for dinner.  We had fresh fish, which was delicious.  That evening, Jette's parents had agreed to take care of a new horse for some friends, so we got to meet her.  Zach and I also got to explore Edelgard's bee hives (we have been eating her honey since we got here, it's delicious).  What a great day.
