A Medievil Festival and a Day in Passau.
Yesterday Kübra's mom took me to a mideval festival. It was very interesting. There were a bunch of people in costumes, and they had food from the time this festival was set in. They had games such as flag painting, archery and Mouse Roulette. For Mouse Roulette two people played at a time. Each have three stones. One person has blue stones while the other has green. There is a model structure of a colosseum from the time period. So the model is circular and has rooms with open doorways surrounding an open area. You each place three stones on top of different rooms. The people running the activity will then place a live mouse in the center of the model's open area. The mouse then has to go in a doorway and into a room. If the mouse enters a doorway with your color of stone on it you win. It was definately interesting to see. There was also a show. The show explained the different outfits for battle for the time period and then they had a competition to see who was the best sword fighter. It was a funny show. After the festival, we went to Passau, Germany, and I got to meet Kuebra's brother, John. He was very nice. We also walked around Passau. Did you know that three rivers meet in Passau? I didn't. I found that out yesterday. Those rivers are the Inn, the Danau or in English it is Known as the Danube, and the Ilz. We had dinner at the Innstadt. It was a nice day.
