Below Brunnenburg and Dirf Tirol is Meran/Merano. This small bustling city has many stores with a larger variety of items then the stores in Dirf Tirol. It also has a train and bus station that allows people to travel out of the area. Jane and I took the students down on Friday morning to check out the market that happens every Friday. The market has everything from food to rugs to shoes and goes for about five blocks. This market provides for the residents of the area and also the tourist that come to Meran. The food comes form local vendors but many of the other products came form various places. The market is a great opportunity to become submerged into the culture of the area and to even practice your German.
Waiting for the bus to Schnalstal, a ski resort on a glacier. The students were told they were going to see a concert, but did not know what sort of music there would be. I knew that the concert was going take place in an ice dome but I had no idea what kind of music we would be treated to.
