Neue Eutiner Festspiele
For lunch we ate in the Cantina inside of the opera barn. The opera barn is a rehearsal space, but it just happens to look like a barn. We were served bratwurst, mashed potatoes, and vegetables. I can't get over the food here. It is delicious. Even the airport food! There were grocery stores in the airport that sold fresh fruit and bread and meats and cheeses. So far Germany is winning in the food category.
Yesterday we were given bikes and it has been a blast riding around getting to know the city! The bikes were donated by the citizens of Eutin, so that the American visitors would be able to have use of them. Mine has a basket on the back and a bell, and I found out last night that there is a generator on my back wheel that provides power to a light in the front and in the back. Much safer for riding at night. Before our evening rehearsal yesterday a few of us stopped in the town square to get a snack for the evening and I was able to order and inquire about it in German :) small step in the right direction, but it made me happy!
