Endlich wieder Englandaustausch

Nach zwei Jahren Coronapause konnten wir uns im letzten September endlich wieder mit einer großen Gruppe von 38 Schüler:innen aus den Jahrgangsstufen 9 und EF auf dem Weg nach Enfield machen. Und das gleich zu einem historischen Zeitpunkt! Denn mitten in unserer Austauschwoche fand das große Staatsbegräbnis von Queen Elizabeth II statt, was man an der Atmosphäre in der Stadt deutlich während unserer gesamten Austauschwoche spürte: sie erschien sehr ehrfürchig und ruhig.

So musste nicht nur das Progamm etwas umgeschmissen werden, da der Montag zum Nationalfeiertag ausgerufen wurde, sondern man hörte immer wieder interessante Geschichten von Menschen, die extra zur Staatsbegräbnis der Queen nach London gereist waren, sich stundenlang vor der Westminster Hall in die Schlange gestellt hatten, um der Queen die letzte Ehre zu erweisen oder am Straßenrand übernachtet hatten, um der Prozession beizuwohnen. Aber natürlich gab es neben dem historischen Ereignis auch wieder jede Menge andere tolle Programmpunkte: neben einer Sightseeing-Tour durch das Regierungsviertel (Trafalgar Square, Downing Street No. 10, Changing of the Guards, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace) haben wir den Tower of London besucht, sind mit dem London Eye gefahren, konnten Eindrücke von unseren Partnerschule gewinnen, haben im Londoner West End das Musical "Wicked" besucht und einen Ausflug nach Cambridge gemacht. Genauere Eindrücke nun anbei. Viel Spaß beim Lesen und Fotos schauen!

My weekend in London

What we did on Saturday and Sunday:
On Saturday morning we got up and had breakfast. French toast with honey strawberries and blueberries, which was a really tasty breakfast. After breakfast we walked to the Lloyd park, which was nearby and had a large lawn for playing football and picnicking, there was also the typical Saturday market. They offered dishes from many different cultures like Mexican, American, Indian, and even more. Next to the park, there was an Art Museum called Winns Gallery Artist's studio. It was very cool to join in and the entry was free! After the walk we had lunch, pasta with Bolognese sauce. We took the tube to Kings Cross and walked past the Harry Potter shop, it was really full. After the Mikros floor we drove to Camden Market with Sophia and Milena and their two exchange partners. We ate a lot there, mostly chicken and chips, smoothies and American candy. I bought a London sweater there. On Sunday we started with a sandwich for breakfast and drove to the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studios. But that wasn't even the highlight, because after that we drove to Leila's grandma and grandpa. Her cousins were there, too. They served what was considered typical English food for Leila. For me, however, it was typical German food, baked potatoes with chicken, peas, boiled carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. After the meal we all played charades and then drove home.

On the 21 of September, we met at the Latymer School. Since the visit of the school on Monday got cancelled, because of the Queen’s death, we got the opportunity, to have a small tour through the school. We didn’t have much time, so we only saw some parts of it. We got split up in two groups, both groups got a teacher to guide them. We visited a lesson in German and answered questions about the exchange and school in Germany, we also saw things such as the break room for the older students. At the end both groups met in the hall were concerts and similar things are hold. We were told, that you need to do a test in this room, to get accepted in the school, this test includes Mathematics and just regular think exercises.After the short tour, we went to the Tower of London, where we could see the Crown Jewels or the armour of knights. We also got some time before and after the visit, before we took photos of the Tower Bridge and a group photo. After our time at the Tower of London, we had the opportunity, to walk around on ourselves, some got food, others went shopping and after about an hour and thirty minutes, we met up again. As a group, we all went to the Apollo Victoria, where we watched the musical “Wicked”. It’s about the witches of Oz, the show was about two hours. After the show ended we went back to the school, some of us were welcomed by their exchange partners on the way. Since it was the last day, before we drove back, almost everyone did something great with their exchange partners. Many of us went bowling, while the other ones went to the IFS Cloud Royal Docks.
