Today is Rosenmontag, an important day in the Fasnacht holiday. There was a big parade, which was very different from Americans parades. People of all ages dressed up as Narren (fools) and wore masks and other costumes. The kids were especially cute; they wore everything from traditional costumes to Captain America. I also got to try Glühwein, which is a warm mulled wine that is very popular in the winter.

We also started the two-week language intensive courses today, but that is not so important.
