One of the first matters of the day was my room change. When I got to Brunnenburg I was sleeping in a room that was supposed to be for two people, now that the students have arrived, I had to vacate. But I am happy with my new room. I no longer have a personal bathroom but the room has a grape feeling to it. Nik used this room as a drying area and this batch of grapes still needed some more time. I get the pleasure of sleeping in the presence of these wonderful smelling grapes.
Nik has also started to show me how to use the tractor on the farm. I have never ridden a tractor but I was really excited to learn. I am nervous to use such an expensive and essential aspect of the farm but Nik is patient and I believe I will get the hang of it. The tractor can have a bucket as pictured below or a forklift attachment that can carry pallets around.
