Hello everybody!

Today, I arrived in Uetze, a small village near Hanover. Two future TVs welcomed my very dearly. :) And my host-mum really love the gift I brought with me.
I will come back to you. :)

Yours, Katie

To be honest, this is not a ladybug, but also a beetle: a shield bug. :) The beetle was lost in the bathroom of my host-family.

Posted Mar 6, 2012, 1:08 pm
Today, a new TV arrived. I was so exciting, that I could not wait until he  got out of his envelope.

It is Winter Bear! And he brought something with him! :) Yummie.

Posted Mar 6, 2012, 1:29 pm
These are the first flowers on the terrace of my host-family: primroses. And they smelled so good. :D

Posted Mar 9, 2012, 2:00 pm

My host had a doctor's appointment today, so we drove to Burgdorf, the next town, where my host had her date with an allergist.
Next to me in the first picture is the guardian angel of the car. :)

Posted Mar 9, 2012, 2:04 pm
Because of the excellent weather, we played a little bit in the garden.

Posted Mar 9, 2012, 2:10 pm
The treatment room looked really nice.

Posted Mar 9, 2012, 2:17 pm
Whoops! My host is so colourful. :)

Posted Mar 9, 2012, 2:18 pm
Back to Uetze: with the bus.

Posted Mar 9, 2012, 3:12 pm
The TV-family gets bigger and bigger. Krtecek just arrived. We welcomed him warmly and gave him a big hug.
Afterwards we met the two pets of the host-family. They have a budgerigar called Racker, like the little tortoise of the movie "Finding Nemo" (in german the turtle is called Racker, I'm not sure of the english name) and a cat called Dicker, because he is so fat (dick is the german word for fat). Dicker looked a little bit hilarious. Was he afraid of me?

Posted Mar 14, 2012, 4:52 pm
We helped to prepare the meal today! Pasta bake! I thought that I was responsable for the salami. But Krtecek wanted to do this job. Thank goodness, he saw me before he started cutting the sausage. I am not so fast! Maybe it is true what people say about moles. They can't see very well...
So I did the cheese-job. :)

Posted Mar 14, 2012, 4:55 pm
A new TV arrived! Mo! He is a little sheep with little rucksack on my back.

Posted Mar 14, 2012, 4:56 pm
Unfortunately, in Uetze is no TV-weather at the moment. But on friday we will travel to Göttingen, where my host studies. Hopefully there will be a better weather.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:14 pm
Our getaway to Göttingen started in Uetze of course. We went by bus to Dollbergen, our first intermediate goal.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:17 pm
In Dollbergen, which is a little village and belongs to the township Uetze, we had not enough time to take pictures. But now I have a new entry on my map.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:20 pm
The next intermediate goal was Hannover, the the capital of the federal state Lower Saxony. We took some pictures on the railway station and in the train.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:29 pm
Here is a picture of the landscape between Hannover and Göttingen.


Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:32 pm
Finally, we arrived in Göttingen.
Göttingen (German pronunciation: [ˈɡœtɪŋən]) is a university town in Lower Saxony. It is the capital of the district of Göttingen. The Leine river runs through the town. In 2006 the population was 129,686.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:37 pm
First of all we visited the old botanic garden. Göttingen has two botanic gardens, the old and the new one. But the old one is much more beautiful... however I think the flowers require more time. Everthing is still brown and grey.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:39 pm
Then we visited Weende. This is district of Göttingen. My host live there during the semester.
There was a very strange tree...

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:42 pm
There was a stone which tell something about Weende. It was founded in 966 and was an independantly community until 1964. At this time it became a district of Göttingen. As a consequence, it is the second oldest district (and it is the most beautiful side in town :) ).

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:45 pm
The St. Petri- Church is the oldest building in Weende. It was built in 1180.  :o

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:48 pm
There is also a river called Weende. The spring of the river also provides the people in Göttingen with drinking water.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:53 pm
Afterwards we drove back to Hannover.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:56 pm
In Hannover, we drove by tram to Altwarmbüchen, where the mum of my host works.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 7:58 pm
There was a very nice sunset on the car park of host-mums working place.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 8:05 pm
Back by car.

Posted Mar 17, 2012, 8:11 pm
Back in Uetze. Wow, this was a strenuous day.

Posted Mar 21, 2012, 7:21 pm
Wow, one more TV arrived today! We are a big family now. :)

... oh, there are two TVs! :D Owen H.M-Fips and Bernie R.G.Bear, they come from Trinidad and Tobago.

Posted Mar 21, 2012, 7:28 pm
We helped baking american cookies today. :) The cookies were very sweet, but delicious.

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 7:41 pm
It was such a lovely weather today, so my host decided to show us TVs Uetze a little bit.
First station was the Junkernhof. It is the oldest building in Uetze. The Junkernhof was build 1635 from the family von Uttensen. Uetze was called "Utisson" (1022) and "Utessem" (1215) in the past. These names are deduced from the name von Uttensen. So the building had a great impact on the village.
So here is the Junkernhof and a stone next to the two-storey half-timber house. :)

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 8:05 pm
The next station was the river Fuhse. The Fuhse is a stream of Lower Saxony, a left tributary of the Aller. The Fuhse originates on the west slope of the Oderwald, foothills of the Harz range between Bad Harzburg und Wolfenbüttel. The source spring lies in the municipality of Flöthe near Schladen. From there the Fuhse flows west of Salzgitter. It turns to the north and flows through Peine, Dollbergen and Uetze to Celle. In Celle (borough Neustadt) it joins the Aller. The most important tributary is the Erse, that joins the Fuhse at Uetze.
There were two ducks on the river. Unfortunately, we had no bread with us... Maybe next time?

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 8:22 pm
There is also a very nice bridge over the Fuhse. ^^

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 8:33 pm
Here you can see the "Neuer Garten". It is a part of the Junkernhof. In former days, it was a restaurant. Today, you can buy it. :(

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 8:45 pm
The church is called "Johannes-der-Täufer-Kirche". It was built in 1867. The tower is 65 m high.
The predecessor was built in 1837, but it was destroyed in 1863 by a great fire. A stone reminds the people.

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 8:54 pm
We went by bicyle by the way.

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 9:04 pm
After our trip through Uetze, we relaxed in the garden.

Posted Mar 23, 2012, 9:15 pm
Krtecek leaves us today. :( We are a little bit sad, but he will travel back to Paris to his mummy! Have fun in Paris. :D

Posted Mar 28, 2012, 9:48 am
We went to Göttingen once more. :)
It was a very nice day: sun and a blue sky.

Posted Mar 28, 2012, 9:53 am
This is a stature next to the station. It shows Miss Charlotte Müller, the oldest street trader of the world.

Posted Mar 28, 2012, 10:25 am
On this picture you can see the town's landmark: the "Gänseliesel". The Gänseliesel (English: Goose Girl, Goose Lizzy (Liesel as pet name of Elisabeth)) is a fountain which was erected in 1901 in front of the mediaeval town hall of Göttingen, Germany. Although rather small in size, the fountain is the most well-known landmark of the city. Today, it is an essential part of the graduation celebrations for every student who finishes a doctorate at the George August University Göttingen to climb the fountain and to kiss the statue of the goose girl. The Gänseliesel is the most kissed virgin of the world. It is forbitten now to kiss her, but tradition is tradition. :)

Posted Mar 28, 2012, 10:34 am
This is a very small guy. Unfortunately I forgot his name, but he was a physicist in Göttingen and became famous for his work.

Posted Mar 28, 2012, 10:43 am
We went to the botanic garden once more. The last time everything looked so brown and grey, but now we could see some flowers.

Posted Mar 28, 2012, 10:54 am
The next picture shows a historical lantern. It stands next to the "Deutsches Theater" (German theatre).

Posted Apr 2, 2012, 1:20 pm
Today, Mo and Winter Bear will leave us. Mo will travel to Finland and Winter Bear will go in the USA. Have fun guys. :)

Posted Apr 2, 2012, 4:40 pm
Happy birthday to you,
happy birthday to you,
happy birthday dear host-mum,
happy birthday to you! ;)

Today, we eat cake and help unpack the gifts.

Posted Apr 2, 2012, 5:08 pm
I'm leaving today! Good-bye Uetze, welcome Hagen. The other TVs said good-bye to me and give me a big hug. Then, I wrote down the address of my next stop and Emma, the squirrel helped me. It is not very easy to hold a pen which is as big as you are. :)

Posted Apr 16, 2012, 1:26 pm
