With the IES group, today I went to a brewery in the Black Forest. Our tour was in German, so I only understood about half, but it was very interesting. Then we had lunch, which I found very strange. First of all, drinking beer before noon is a very German thing to do. Second, I had Käsefleisch, which literally means cheese meat. It was basically a loaf of baloney, but surprisingly not terrible.
After the brewery, we went to a town on the Titisee, where I got to try real German Black Forest cherry cake. Apparently it has alcohol in it. Who knew? I also got to go souvenir shopping a bit. After this, the group went to a church, which was very beautiful. Germany has such gorgeous old churches, and they make the ones in America seem so bland.
