German-American Day

In 1683, on October 6th, 13 families from Krefeld, Germany, arrived in Philadelphia to settle and later founded the city of Germantown. This event is celebrated by German-Americans every year and this year, Anni and I were part of it.
After school, we went downtown to the German House. Classical Music, a weeiirrd choir with shrill voices and some talks made for the general ceremony.
Later on, there was free food and drinks and we had some conversations with first generation immigrants, which was pretty fun. Central theme of this years celebration was the 60th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift.
