Today we all (teachers included) took a day off of classes to explore parts of Ludwigsburg (home to a fantastic Baroque palace), Stuttgart (namely the Mercedes-Benz museum), and Esslingen (for a wine tasting). It was a very, very long day. It was also lovely weather (in the high 60s) and the company, food, and experiences were great. Without further ado, Ludwigsburg (pictures inside the Schloss were, sadly, forbidden):
We came home and relaxed in a pub filled with board games. I wish we could play hooky every day.
