Day 14: Day off in Stralsund!
Today the WNT had a break fro training and games. The morning started off with a nice breakfast that included french toast made by "T" and Jenny Choi (with help from a few others). At 9:00, the team met with a tour guide in downtown Stralsund for an hour and a half tour of the city.
It was a beautiful day, and everyone enjoyed walking around and learning about the rich history of Stralsund, including many churches and buildings that date back to the 1400's.
After the tour, the WNT went to the local mal, where we were greeted by a team of cheerleaders at the entrance. Members of the team did a little demonstration with a goal that had been set-up on the main floor. Inside, the WNT met with the manager of the mall, and took a tour of the mall.
Everyone was really excited to be given "all access" to the mall cafeteria, which included delicious food and all we could eat!
The afternoon was given off so that people could take care of their laundry/shopping/email.
The team reconvened in the evening, all dressed up in their best clothes to meet with the mayor of Stralsund. Unfortunately, the mayor was sick, but the vice-mayor came and welcomed us to the town hall where everyone enjoyed a nice buffet with lots of local delicacies like fresh fish and soup, as well as other entrees and fruit and dessert.
Come visit Stralsund, it is definitely a fantastic city!
