On Tuesday, after a long Lufthansa flight to Leipzig, Germany via Toronto and Düsseldorf, the group of students from the CSS Leipzig Exchange 2013, Dawn and Ashley Schwantke, Katelyn Wegerson and Mariah Sis, and Dr. Karen Rosenflanz arrived in Germany. We went straight to the Berufsfachschule (Medical Training School) of the University of Leipzig near downtown Leipzig http://mbfs.uniklinikum-leipzig.de/ , where we'll be visiting classes and getting to know nursing students and faculty.

After a quick briefing on our jam-packed schedule of events we headed downtown on the streetcar to see the sights and dive into German culture. Already conquered: the words for "Excuse me": Entschuldigung and "Nonsense!": Quatsch!!
The students will be blogging about their exciting adventures in Leipzig over the next two weeks.
