thanks for writing this about me lol, albeit not completely truthfully :) In my case I didnt need to learn English, nor was I a college student, nor did you hire me, I offered but I still had fun with you guys and all the times we got lost, your friend ending up in the youth hostel in dachau, sleeping in the kitchen, by climbing through an open window hahah.
Seeing Raf's family was great too.
I cant say I have a fav thing about Dachau, as I did not go inside, both times that I was there. I just cant do it.

A Strong Message to all
One of the things that you will get from a visit here is a very strong message about life and freedom.
This is a place that everyone should visit if they are visiting Europe. There are lessons to be learned here.
This is a part of history and it should be told.
The Bavarian way of life is never more evident than when you travel into the heart of Dachau and enter one of the Biergärtens. Since all 4 of us had never really been on a trip to Europe while we were in college, we tried our best to experience this type of environment first hand by going out drinking once in a while.
We mainly planned these excursions on nights that we did not have a whole lot of driving to do the next day, and in Dachau, we needed to prepare for Oktoberfest.
Here is our table full of bier... in mass and en masse.
~~~ there's a castle, too ~~~
Ontop of the city, you'll find a nice castle with a nice view to Munich. After checking the castle you can rest in
the park or at the
coffee shop with tasteful cakes within the castle or adjacent to the park.
The castle is opened April-September: 9 am-6 pm and October-March: 10 am-4 pm
This picture shows the level of security that the camp had. The first barrier is a manmade ditch that was filled with water, followed by a barbed wire fence, then an open area, followed by a 10 foot wall, topped with barbed wire. If any prisoner got between the ditch and wall, he was shot immediately. Many prisoners in order to escape the life of the camp would purposely throw themselves into the forbidden barrier just to be shot and end their misery.
