A-Marketing We Go…

I decided to bring my camera along with me this morning to the open market. I am definitely living out my ideal grocery shopping scenario. We have a tiny fridge– think of a big dorm-sized one– so I can’t keep many perishables on hand. We have one rack in the pantry where I keep coconut […]

Settling Into Life in Germany

In the in-betweens… So there are plenty of big events, like going to Munich, starting school, flohmarkt-shopping, etc. But what about all of the spaces in between?

German Food

About the food… We are in a unique position to really find out what food is like here, since we have no kitchen and must eat almost all of our meals out. It has been very hard to find a bad meal here! We eventually did at an Italian place, but I suppose it’s our […]

First Impressions of Germany

First Impressions… Well, first of all, it is SUPER HOT here right now. Apparently, this is unusual. Also, Germans don’t seem to believe in air conditioning at all, but they do seem to be firm believers in cooling from the inside out– “eis cafes” are packed out, people everywhere digging into huge gelatos and ice […]
