Today we visited Heidelberg, Germany. It has a University that dates back to the 1300's with the obligatory castle on the hill above town. Nonette shopped as long as she could and I took a few pics. We had lunch with college students from the university and enjoyed talking to them about their education. The girl at our table was an Education major. It takes 6 years to graduate but they all have a masters degree when they finish. She speaks 4 languages. They do a year and a half of student teaching for which they are paid 1600 Euros a month. When they finish student teaching they make around 3600 Euros a month as a full time teacher. Today we learned: A drivers license costs 2000 euros, You have to have winter tires in the winter or your insurance drops you, most people don't have room to store the 4 tires so they have tire hotels where they rent a space to store their tires, gas is 6 euros a gallon and motor oil is 30 euros a liter, if you have any alcohol in you while driving you lose the 2000 euro drivers license Here are some pics of the day. There is a picture of the student with Nonette.
