Woke up after at around 11:00. Stefan and Andrea were up already.. so we went to the SPAR to get some breakfast. After some chatting and packing up I decided to head back to Erasmushaus (again!). Took the next train from Ermatingen to Kreuzlingen and walked alll the way back to Erasmushaus ofcourse.

It was already past 14:00 and Agne was already up and ready I guess... except for a headache/hangover from the previous night. Surprisingly although Andrea was hungover too, I didn't feel a thing. Ha! Some time to kill till the barbecue, so we had tea/coffee and had some interesting discussion about Lithuanian and its Indo roots. And ofcourse some bitching about (Swiss)German language.

Around 15:00, we started to make our way to the other side of the river where the student house and barbecue was to be.
Had a nice relaxed stroll to the lake, crossed the river and to the grocery store for getting the meattt yum :-) Ran into Lucas there, who led us to the dorm. We set up the benches and the grill... all covered and all. This was to be the very first barbecue of the season... yeah!! And so it began, a whole bunch of more guys n gals showed up. There was tonnes of meat and salads on the grill one at a time. It took a while to get the grill going but then it was like a well oiled machine... thoroughly enjoyed the sun and an open air late lunch for a change. Around 5:30ish, we were a bit tired, and definitely quite full... so bid our farewells to Doro, Lucas, Clements, Viola and all the other nice people at the BBQ. Agne was tired but was nice enough to still give me a tour of the old town still. We sat a while at the lake, and strolled around. Saw Imperia and then walked across to the Muenster. The lake is serene and chilled, and the Muenster is quite magnificent... the best mix of straight faces and articulate decoration on the exterior I have ever seen on a church. We then headed back to the Konstanz station, just in time for me to make it for the next train. So that was the quick farewell... and an awesome evening many thanks to my kind guide Agne.
