Bass thanks Luke Hoskin
Thanks Luke for stopping by the club last Thursday to tell us all about your adventures in Germany. Luke did his exchange to the small city of Viersen near Düsseldorf in northern Germany. His host parents were both doctors at a local hospital. Luke was able to see a lot of Europe in his travels with his host family and, along the way, became quite fluent in both German and Russian. Since his return Luke has been working as a roustabout and is about to go to Hillston for a 10 week stint as a brush cutter.
