One of the most memorable "going-away" events was a 2-hour boat cruise down the Main River after work one day. Our boy Kyle hooked up this event and everyone benefited from it. We packed out this little boat with people, food, and drink and tore up the Main before being dropped off in Sachsenhausen, where we proceeded to sit and watch Germany take on Greece in the knockout stage of the Euro Cup. The pictures tell all....
Katie brought a wonderful surprise batch of American box cupcakes, complete with sprinkles and flags that represented the nationalities of those on board.
The heavy hors d ourves kept us afloat until landing.
My former colleague, Elyar, joined us for the weekend away from his graduate studies in Physics in Berlin.
The pack of fake mustaches were a hit!

After disembarking, the group poses for one more shot - with the guy who gladly took our recycling.
