I would say that about half of the cars I see here are made by Mercedes-Benz, including the coach bus that took us to Lake Konstanz. Arriving in Meersburg, we had the opportunity to walk around the town for an hour. We were very entertained by Ben Bauman trying to catch pigeons. Though there was a monetary reward, he still couldn't catch one. Us girls soon tired of pigeon-catching and walked through the remaining part of the old wall that used to surround the city to get to the shops. After picking up some trinkets and souvenirs, we ran back to our coach. To get to the city Konstanz, we drove our coach on a ferry across the lake. There was actually another coach bus that got on behind us, which made me a little nervous. I soon forgot the nervousness when we discovered a cafeteria on top of the ferry. Snacks in hand, we arrived safely on the other side of the lake. I saw a huge mall on right which I pointed out to Katie, and we both got very excited. With strict instructions to be back at the bus in an hour and a half, Mr. Metzler set us loose in the mall.
Our tour of Konstanz was pleasant. The tour guide was informative and eager to answer all our questions. At the end of the tour, she left us on a crowded street lined with...more shops. The teacher accompanying us said that we could get ice cream and look around for about twenty minutes and then go back to the bus. Darting in and out of the many shoe shops (don't worry Dad, I didn't buy any), Katie, Lindsey, and I were gone a little longer than twenty minutes.
