young people from the old country Germany they dis covered something different cultures a thousand miles apart could not separatekids are kids no matter where one goes A group of local youngste s recently returned from Ger many after spending time w th hosts from the area of Ger many where many of the fa inders of New Braunfels orig inated The group which includec Kent Schulz Teresa Supulver Jennifer Owens and Shaun Snider traveled to Germany through a program sponsored by the Wurstfest Association The Wurstfest Association has been sponsoring these groups which consist of sophomores and juniors in high school for more than 20 ye ITS The local group stayed wi h German hosts Florian Rathe Sondra Abbel Nadja Grelner and Jens Kuckenbecker and will now host their German friends for the next month The students are learninj about each others culture by actually experiencing it I think kids there ares Two weeks were left in tl While in Germany they i some historic places but day Germans live 1You go to a caft or rests uint you can sit there and stay the rest of the night They dont make you lesve or any said Schulz wnt to a disco or dancehall it was so picked it wu tough o breathe But you can stay the whole night if you want Theyll even reed you in the Snider said one interesting aspect of young adulthood in Germany was that Qermini can legally drink slchohol when they are but get their drivers license until students return from Germany age 18 Its drinking at earlier age just accepted there I think it teaches them to be more he said One German youth Rathe said a drivers license can cost more than marks higher than and make take two or three months to get Of course once you get one you may find yourself out on the German superhighway known as the Autobahn which has no speed limits The fastest I went was 160 in an Audi said Snider The skin felt like it was peeling back on my The German students will spend about a month longer here in the States sightseeing and shopping especially for blue jeans which can go for about 160 marks in Germany said Owens Germans are also well aware of American customs Many television shows are seen in Germany includ ing classics like Dallas and The Beverly and more modem ones such as Beverly Hills 1 really want to see an American football game W just one team in Germany the Frankfurt Galaxy and not very good I want to see real football and baseball said Greiner The students have already traveled some and plan to take in some local sites as well as travel to other parts of the state 1 went to Oklahoma I wanted to sea the country the Indi an sites and said Kuckenbecker Everything is very spread out here Its also very dry no Abbel said she wanted to travel down to the border because she can speak Spanish in addition to German ind English They plan to go to Laredo and possibly the South Padre Island area One thing is certain experiencing different cultures is much more existing md maybe even more educational than limply reading shout them HeraldZeitung photo by DAVID SULLENS Officials of the United Way of Comal Countys Advance Gifts division this week mailed letters setting In motion the
