On Sunday I said good bye to my wonderful host in Gelsenkirchen- The Gill Family (Thomas and Suzanna)- they showed me a really great time and I thank them for there generosity and amazing hospitality. Gelsenkirchen was a good experience and I met alot of kind, fun and thoughtful people and never did I think I would go down in to a working coal mine!
Sunday afternoon I arrived in Willich and met my hosts for this week the Ormanns- Katya and Walter, they too have exceeded my expectations and I am enjoying getting to know them. The last 3 days have been vocational days. The first day I spent with Dr Muller in Willich who owns a small animal practice similar to where I work and he was really busy! The second day I was with small animal vet Dr Johannes in Kaarst- he was doing surgeries while I was there so we compared techniques and shared ideas. Today I spent with Dr Kruger a small animal dental specialist- I observed dental referral cases and we discussed some questions that I have always want to ask a specialist. The vocational program has been exceptional all 3 days.
On Tuesday Katya took me to visit water castles Rheydt and Dyck- it was a great afternoon wondering the castles and gardens. The castles were very impressive and Im glad I got to see them!
I am including pictures below from both Gelsenkirchen and Willich
