3 Monate Denver & Kärcher North America

week 10/14

Hey everybody! Week 10 was amazing! On thursday we had our good bye party.. it was held at the tavern in the denver tech center south. Hannes (CEO) also said some words to thank us and we got some goodbye presents. One was the t-shirt of the colorado university boulder (CU) and the other one was a dictionary for american idioms... because we learned a lot of them here. It was a great good bye and we also prepared a little speech to thank everybody and to say good bye. I really felt sad this day because I will definitely miss some of my colleagues and stuff like our fitness center or Lower Downtown... But I think i am also ready now to fly home because I know there are some people waiting for me and also I am really looking forward to my work there. Friday was crazy. We went out for tapas and ended in 3 clubs and were at home at 4:30 a.m. but it was a real great and long party night! I can't belive that we really had such a great party night at our last weekend together (Grazyna leaves next friday to florida with her husband). We always tried before to go to clubs but we were too tired or not motivated.. SO this was our private perfect good bye Saturday wasn't calmer. Jim Lombard (Grazynas supervisor in Denver) invited us for a Colorado university football game and for tailgating. Tailgating is much fun! At university football games it was a long time not allowed to drink alcohol in the stadium. So people met at the parking lots before the game to tailgate.. that means they open their trunk for having a pre party and grill. Jims daughter is a student at the CU so the whole family had a CU tent, CU shirts and so on. We had a great barbecue (Jim grilled burgers and hot dogs) and prepared for the game. In total we were like 10 persons (colleagues and friends of jim) tailgating and then heading to the game at the stadium. The show around the game was really impressive. There was a pretty good marching band which entertained all the fans and the cheerleaders were like the typical american stereotype. Also " Ralphie" a real buffallo (the sign of the CU buffs which is the football team) ran around in the stadium...The game itself wasn't that good because it is hard to understand the rules because it is very strategic and there are so many rules.. but when you know the rules then it begins to be a fun sport! It was amazing that for just a university football game around 70.000 people came to see the university team! I also loved the CU campus which I already mentioned in my first blog posts at the beginning of my stay. I really felt like I wanted to study again! Today was a much more calmer day. We picked up some sales reps from the airport because next week there is the national sales meeting in denver where all our sales reps come together to have some trainings, workshops and presentations. We are also invited tomorrow and will attend the dinner after the meeting.. I am excited. So for me there are just 2 weeks left of working and i am busy now organizing everything for my holidays afterwards and to arrange everything here and to get the stuff for my final presentation which is at my last day of work (26th of September) So I wish you a great week and you hear my news soon!
