#8 Bonn, Germany
Michele Azar and her daughter Lizzie brought the best arrow of the first day - a bold, colorful arrow festooned with actual gummi bears pointing to Bonn, Germany. It was a bit of a head-scratcher to me at first. But, Michele explained that she told Lizzie about the project and asked her "If we could make an arrow that pointed to anyplace on Earth, where would it point?" Lizzie responded, "Wherever gummi bears are made." Awesome.
When Lizzie and I exchanged arrows, she apologized for biting the heads of a couple off the bears from the sign on her way to Mt. Holly. No apology needed. Thanks to you, Lizzie, I will never forget that the Haribo gummi factory is in Bonn, Germany.
