A LETTER FROM JIL—IN GERMANY

Hi, my name is Jil. I'm 11 years old. I live in a city called Krefeld in Germany. Krefeld is on the river Rhein (Rhine), in the western part of Germany, not far from the border with the Netherlands. What I like about our city is that it has lots of parks and public gardens, where you can go for walks and play. Krefeld also has a big zoo. I love to visit my favorite animals: elephants and zebras.

My family and I live in a house next to the Krefeld town forest. I have a sister and a brother. My sister, Hanna, is 13, and my brother, Gabriel, is 17. Gabriel works after school, and he often is not home. But I know he loves me. He took care of me when my parents traveled to the city of Dresden for three days. Hanna sometimes helps me with homework, and she teaches me things about hockey—we both love to play field hockey!
