That's where the apple trees grow. Gays Mills is famous for its orchards throughout Wisconsin (seriously). The trees are dwarf trees and you seldomly need a ladder. I was sore the second day and thought I would have to quit on day three, but slowly I got used to it. They grow some varities that we have in Germany too, like Gala, Jonagold, Granny Smith, Red/Golden Delicious, Pink Lady and Fuji, but others were completely new to me: Greening, Cortland, Macintosh (Yes, Apple Inc. is named after it), Ida Red, Bailey Sweet, Honeycrisp (their most popular variety), Jonathon, Red Rome, Empire, Tollmen Sweet and some others. I had been completely unaware of the whole apple world!

The date is drawing closer... We'll be heading to the US in four weeks! Let the adventure begin. I will use this blog to let colleagues and friends know what we are up to. I will try to post one photo every week that shows some cultural differences...
