We have enjoyed another Culture week at Afnorth. A variety of events were held over the week. Abi took part in the talent show. She did 3 cheers with her squad. They opened the show and were very good. I've included one photo of her cheering. She also was a magician's assistant. They did 2 tricks and it went well. Jacob didn't want to take part! He was in a recorder show and I've included a photo from that performance. At the end of the week there was a parade. Abi went as a cat and Jacob was a gangster. I was teaching that day so didn't manage to get a photo! I have included one from them as the parade in Sittard though. At the end of Culture week it was then the Carnival break. Ruth, a friend from University days, arrived for the week. We went out in Cologne for the night to celebrate carnival. We were lucky enough to meet up with some German friends who took us out for the night. Everyone was dressed up and it was very traditional music even though we were in a night club. It was a great atmosphere and felt a bit like a New Year in Edinburgh. We stayed the night in a very posh hotel and then did a bus tour of the city the next day.
