He was very funny and always in a good mood. In the afternoon at Calais we took the ferry to Dover. In the evening we arrived tired at our hotel in Folkestone. It wasn’t very good, because it was a little bit old and spooky. It was right next to the sea, but we were not allowed to swim. We had English breakfast every morning. Unfortunately the food was not so delicious there. On Tuesday we made a “trasure hunt” in Folkestone. After that we went to the town Rye. They say that Rye is one of the most beautiful places in England. We watched a presentation about the town. The very next day we visited the amazing Dover Castle and its surrounding area. After that we went on a hike in St. Margret, but we ran out of steam soon. So we got to the town with the funny name, Sandwich. The sandwich that we all know was invented there. On Thursday we made another “treasure hunt”, this time it was in Canterbury. After that we went to the big and old Canterbury Cathedral. It was pretty amazing and we learned a lot there. But definitely the best day was in London! Ludgar took us to Greenwich and we went to the Tower of London by tube. After a long and interesting stay there, we made a passage over the River Thames to the centre of London. We walked through London, took a break at the Buckingham Palace (the flag was hoisted, so the Queen was there) and we saw a lot of sights. It was just amazing!
Also, we were at Oxford Street, the most famous shopping street in London. In the evening we got back to our coach by tube. At 6 o’ clock on Saturday we arrived at Mülheim, so we traveled over night.

This was a really exciting week and a great experience.
