Our honored guests from the Hessen region in Germany arrived Wednesday -- but not without delays. While Park Terrace was set with a BBQ and drinks for a 2:30 arrival, Customs lines in Chicago did not move quickly enough. Unfortunately, the group missed the flight from Chicago to Madison, but fortunately, Greyhound Bus Lines came to the rescue. The group arrived at Park Terrace at the college around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday. Understandably, everyone quickly ate. met their hosts, and went on to their final destinations for some rest after 24 hours of travel.

Thursday was the formal college reception to welcome the students and their instructors, Hagan and Corrina. Today, everyone will have a campus tour at 10 a.m. and then enjoy the Ford Family Farm for a hayride this evening. The dairy farm has several hundred dairy cows they milk and feed daily, and the students will get an introduction to the joys of farming (and smells!) this evening.

Tomorrow we head to Ledgeview Cave Tour in the morning, allowing the rest of the day for shopping and visiting. We plan to take Hagen, our guest, over to Sheboygan to enjoy dinner by that little pond called Lake Michigan.

We are delighted our guests arrived safely. Several hosts have commented on the delightful company and conversations. We look forward to the week ahead and teh continuation of this important exchange for our college.
