Rafting and rating

SO there was the last and the most important day of the CEOI 2014 in Jena. We started with a rafting tour on the river Saale. At first it was pretty cold. So it wasn’t too much fun of getting each other wet. But then we stopped for a break. Had some very bad grilled bratwurst. …

Competition and freetime

Thuringia

Germany is divided in 16 states. Thuringia is one of them. It is the 6th smallest state. And there are more than 2 million people living here. The capital is Erfurt. Thuringia is also called the Green Heart of Germany. Well “Heart” because it’s located in the middle of Germany and “Green” cause it’s close …

Germany

So now I’d like to present you the place where you landed… it’s Germany. I don’t know for what Germany is famous for in the world. There are some dark moments of the history which everybody knows about. But I will talk about those early enough. Before China came up Germany was the Export master. …
