Dia 9 / Day 9 - July 11/2012

Estuvimos todo el dia conociendo Bonn.  Fuimos a la Universidad de Bonn, estuvimos visitando el palacio Poppelsdorf, estuvimos en la Minster-Basilica, fuimos a Sterntor y finalmente visitamos la casa de Beethoven (courtesia de Jürgen y Silvana).


Hoy es nuestro ultimo día en Bonn.  Jürgen y Silvana nos recomendaron visitar Aachen, una ciudad fronteriza con Belgica.  Jürgen nos consiguio un car-pool, a pesar de la decepcion del primer car-pool, decidimos intentar de nuevo.  Jürgen y Silvana nos llevaron al punto de encuentro.  Después de esperar por varios minutos pasada la hora acordada, aparecio George.  Nos fuimos con el desde Bonn a Aachen.  Conversamos con el todo el recorrido y resulta que habia viajado a través de Estados Unidos por 2 meses con su novia también haciendo couch surfing.  Cuando le fuimos a pagar nos dijo que no nos preocupáramos que el sabia como era viajar con presupuesto limitado y que no le pagáramos.


Llegamos a las 7:30pm a la casa de Zuzana, una chica de Slovakia que contactamos a traves de couch surfing donde nos vamos a quedar por 2 noches.  Zuzana nos hizo sentir como en la casa desde un principio......con decir que a la media hora salió y se fue con su novio para un curso que están tomando para prepararse para ser papas......estan esperando bebe para Septiembre.

We spent the day around Bonn.  We went to the University of Bonn, we visited the Poppelsdorf palace, we went to Minster-Basilica, we went to Sterntor and finally we visited Beethoven's house (courtesy also of Jürgen and Silvana)


Today is our last day in Bonn.  Jürgen and Silvana recommended us to visit Aachen, a city located in the border with Belgium.  Jürgen contacted a car-pool for us, even though the first one let us down, we decided to try again.  After waiting for several minutes pass the arranged time, George showed up.  We got into his car from Bonn to Aachen. We talked the whole trip and he told me that he had been traveling in the US for 2 months with his girlfriend doing couch surfing.  When we went to pay him for the lift he told us not to worry about it that he knew how it was to travel on a limited budget and that it was his treat.


We arrived at around 7:30pm at Zuzana's house, a girl from Slovakia that we contacts through couch surfing where we were going to stay for 2 nights.  Zuzana made us feel at home right away......she left around half hour later with her boyfriend for a pre-natal course.......they are expecting a baby for September.
