totally enjoyable! We once had a German exchange student along on a boy scout trip, on the # chain. He thought he was going on a fancy "boat ride"....I think he was disappointed.

Thanks for the report. My brother's family had a German exchange student with them down in Texas this year and we really wanted to take him up to the Boundary Waters and he wanted to go, but it didn't work out. I think he'll come back to the States and we'll do a trip later. His family lives in the Alps so there is a plus side when visiting Europe too (although I'd be happy just taking a newbie to the Boundary Waters without that plus side!).

I enjoyed the report and the pictures - I just love a good latrine pic :). We usually try to get a pic with the number visible ;). I'm glad it worked out and everyone had a good trip.

Joy is a great teacher, but so is dispair. Wonder is a great teacher, but so is confusion. Hope is a great teacher, but so is disillusionment. And life is a great teacher, but so is death. To deny yourself any of those in any aspect is not experiencing life totally.

Es freut mich, dass die Lotte auf der BW gereist ist!



(wow, I don't really know if I said that correctly, LOL...it's been 18 years since I could speak German...I am really not sure about that "ist" with reisen in the past tense like that...)

And, Nola, I don't have a freakin' clue! Amanda would be able to tell us, but she's not home and Lottie left on June 14th - boy do we miss her!!!

I tried to say that I am glad that Lotte got to travel to the BW. I am not sure that I have my verb agreement correct or if that is quite how it is said. It's just been so long since I spoke German. The funny thing is now that I haven't been around it for so long, I can understand it much better than I can speak it, so if I were talking to Lotte, she could speak to me in German and I could speak back in English and we could understand one another. Provided she speaks English, which I assume that she does. ;-)
