Week 28: April 16th - April 23rd
In this week relatively much happened for an Altanticweek. Because we didn´t have much lessons, we had to hurry up and learn for the two exams we had to write this week. One of the exams was German and one English. For German we could study very much but in English there was not much that we could learn. But we were lucky that we wrote the exams on the beginning of the week and so everyone of us was happy that we managed the last exams. In this week we also had to clean our ship on the day named “Großreinschiff”. Our Johnny was cleaned up very well because all of us would like to sail in the harbour with a sparkling ship. On the movie night, which was earlier than usually, we watched the movie “Wüstenblüme”. That´s a very good movie about the circumcision (Beschneidung) in Africa. In the middle of the week we also had very much wind in the night. There were about 40 kn. Just before arriving two pupils found about 30 kg flour so we could bake more bread for breakfast and dinner. Apart from that Adrian and I could bake our yummy yeast pastries called “Hefezopf”. In the end of the week we had our last lessons. Many pupils were very happy about that. On Thursday the “Stammcrew” told us that we couldn´t arrive in Hamburg on the 7th Mai and had to sail one week longer and would arrive on the 14th Mai 2011. Manypupils were very sad when they heard that but other pupils were very happy and glad about this. On Saturday came finally the best news for weeks: Acores in view! Everybody was crazy because of that. And after a few hours we arrived in the harbour in Horta of Faial and went on land. In the evening we celebrated our arrival on the Acores in the famous “Peter’s Café Sport” a bit. This was our week from the 16th April to the 23th April 2011.
