Ratingen, Germany - 16th November 2011

By: RedSwan

Hey home,

I finally arrived in Ratingen, Germany. Mr. Scraps, another Toyvoyager from Austria, opend the envelope

This is him and me. My host explained me where Austria is and I thought that it isn't that far away from my home.

Nat - my host - also found the letter you wrote and yeah, we both and also Mr. Scraps will have a good time over here. I'm pretty sure.

Later on this day my host, Mr. Scraps and I went to the hospital for visiting my hosts grandfather after having an heart attack. First I tried to drive on my own but Nat told me, that I'm not old enough for driving.

So I sat at the window where I had a great view of everything.

Unfortunately my host didn't take any pictures of me in the hospital. She doesn't want to photograph the sick and injured people and truely? I do understand her. But on the way back, we took this amazing picture with the church during the sunset in Heiligenhaus - a city next to Ratingen. I love it.

I know, you can hardly see me.

Acutally we don't know what we're going to do on the weekend. My host planned to visit Cologne or Venlo (Netherlands) but isn't sure though. It is said that the weather shouldn't be that nice anymore. So it might happen that we three will end up at the university just for a bit learning - and showing me around.

Miss you,

Miss you,

Ratingen, Germany - 19th November 2011

today we went to a christmas basar of a school for mentally and physically handicapped students. At first we had to go by bus.
http://home.arcor.de/uhhuhherpics01/ottolux_0011.jpg http://home.arcor.de/uhhuhherpics01/ottolux_0012.jpg

As we left the bus we had to go a bit - around 3 minutes - and on the way we found this sign. I guess you know what it means.

Finally we arrived at the "Helen Keller Förderschule".

We went inside and looked a bit around about what they're selling. Afterwards my host had a soup.

Then we already left and went to a shop for christmas. I found this funny hat and had to wear it. Do you like it?

In the end we went to a playground where we played. I climbed up the climbing wall.

I had a great day and miss you! Send you lots of love from Germany,

Ratingen, Germany - 22nd November 2011

By: RedSwan


I'm pretty well although I had a quite stressful day. My host mum changed her minor subject of her studies from Musicology to German Studies. So she had to learn really hard for German. I and of course the other Voyagers decided to help her with her major. So everyone of us got a different subject to study on. My subject was called "Introduction to English and American Literary Studies: Methods of Literary Analysis / Overview American Literature." It seems to be quite interesting.

So I read with the others.

In the evening her girlfriend came around for watching a movie. So we decided to watch a queer one and both of them gave us four movies we had to choose. At first I had a look on my own, later on we decided together which one we wanted to watch. So we came up with "But I'm A Cheerleader".

Oh, btw that's us in front of a queer banner.

That's it for today,
Love and miss you
Otto Lux

Ratingen, Germany - 24th November 2011

By: RedSwan

Hello home,

today my host showed me her part of Ratingen, she lives. It's called Ratingen - Homberg and is the second smallest part. It has around a population of 5500 people. But I don't know how many cows, pigs and stuff like that. I'm really surrounded by fields. If it wouldn't be that cold and if my host mum would have more time, we'd go for a walk into the fields. Maybe tomorrow or so?!?

First of all: This is the oldest church in Ratingen. It's said to be older that 1,000 years. Amazing, isn't it? It's the catholic one.

We turned around and I saw the hill we had to go up first with this amazing old framehouse.

These are also old houses. One of them as it's one fountain. Actually in the white one is the library of the catholic church.

We went much higher and found the youngest church in Ratingen. Is going to be 100 years next year. It's the protestant one.

That's what I saw from Homberg, as it doesn't have anything more. Okay and we had to go to university so we hadn't any more time. But I hope I will see more.

In the evening my host had to had a look for new ballet classes as she can't dance in her old balletschool anymore. So we got ready. Do you see me with those pointe shoes? She really has to dance on it.

But she also allowed us to play with her clothes.

Don't be afraid. I don't wanna do ballet.

Miss you,

Essen, Germany - 26th November 2011

By: RedSwan

Hello mummy,

first of all I ought to say sorry for the delay. My host mummy was really busy but now she has the time to update everything. She took a couple of pictures so I let you know what happend.

Today we went to Essen - a city close to Ratingen.

As the christmas market opened there a couple of days ago I got the change to see it. Unfortunately it wasn't dark enough to see all the lights. So I saw the slight of Santa Clause, sat in a Christmas tree and saw a big wheel.

Furthermore she explained me bit about Essen. Here's a sign.

Later on we saw the "Coca Cola Truck". Maybe you know it from the advertising. I saw it in real. Amazing!
http://home.arcor.de/uhhuhherpics01/ottolux_0036.jpg http://home.arcor.de/uhhuhherpics01/ottolux_0035.jpg

At the end she showed me the place she used to go for fotoshootings, dancing, learning or just meeting people. It's called "Unperfekthaus"

Love you mummy,

Hey mummy,

this is just a small note. Today was the day and I leave my hosts home. So sad to leave my new friends back, but another one is going to be handed to her next host tomorrow.
