III Congreso Nacional Alemanes del Volga


It's been over a month since our visit to Coronel Suarez and our presentation at the Congreso. It was a great day and I met some fabulous people.



The people at the Congreso celebrated our German heritage in song, dance and food.

One of the speakers, Nestor Baier wanted to meet people from Kansas so I introduced him to Harry and Marge.




My three new friends, Sophie, Haffner and Agustina.




Judy, Jerry and Jan review the settler lists in the library.




Everyone toured the booths and I purchased the Jakob Riffel book in Spanish as incentive for me to learn the Spanish. So, Spanish for Dummies, here I come!
