Once Lost,Now Found
After breakfast the next morning, Kathy and Evan say goodbye to Gertrude and her mother and take their leave.
K: They were sweet. Everyone is so friendly here so far.
E: I can't believe our luck. Even our "bad" luck turns into good luck!
K: The route Gertrude suggested is sure pretty. There ar e so many farms along the way. So many trees, ponds, rivers.
E: And castles. You can notice some of them on the tops of the hills. Many of them are ruins, but you can sense that Germany has a lot of history.
K: Uh-oh. What if the people on the border to Denmark don't speak English?
E: Don't be silly. Nearly everyone here in northern Europe speaks some English. Of course, the customs officers must know some English.
K: I hope so. I'm part Danish, but I don't know any Danish.
E: Like me. I'm part Dutch, but I don't know any Dutch.
K: Maybe we should learn a foreign language.
E: I think you're right. But I would want to learn German. And you?
K: Japanese. I love Japanese food!
