A Memorial Day Visit

Michelle Roark came to town! Just in time, too, because the Mainz soccer team needed her! The soccer team was founded in 1905 and finally moved up to the premier league in 2004 when Michelle was visiting for a few days in May.

Unfortunately, Mainz only lasted two seasons in the premier league before moving down to the second league (roughly comparable to the minors). This year they fought hard and it came down to the final game again - they made it and will play in the premier league next year. Michelle was here to witness the crazy celebration once again!

2009 celebration
Michelle arrived on Thursday, which was a holiday in our part of Germany. Jan picked her up early at the airport and we hung out and took a walk to the park.

Michelle overcame her jetlag and Blaise was happy to flirt with her!

Reading Hour

Michelle even caught up on her reading

We relaxed and took a few day trips while she was here. We took a Rhine cruise and toured the small town of St. Goar. We also took a trip down to Oppenheim, a small wine village on the Rhine. We hung out at the market and drank good coffee. It was great to have you here, Michelle! Thank you for visiting us!
