Saturday morning we said goodbye to Beate and Ellen and drove our rented car to Rosbach where we're staying with Lena and Peter. Beate and Ellen have promised to visit us in the states again.

We arrived at the home of our hosts in Rosbach where we soon left for a polterabend. We arrived at the party to
find a pile of broken dishes in the driveway. As we found out, a polterabend is a German wedding tradition where guests to the party bring old dishes and break them to wish the couple good luck and chase away bad spirits. Good food, friendly people and even fireworks filled the evening.

Stay tuned for the next Germany installment.
