New Experiences

Sorry for the delay, I had problems with youtube since the video was longer than 10 minutes. Just click on the icon and you can view the video. Next week I'll be back to the YouTube version!

Things I forgot to mention:

-Marien, Bea, and Nuria who all cooked and had dinner with us the first night.  The three of them plus Fran and Victor are all from Spain.  I've met people from all over the world here, Brazil, France, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Latvia, Turkey,Nepal, Benin, Hong Kong, Belgium and of course Germany.   It has really been a unique experience to have so many people from so many different parts of the world.

- Thank you Gokahn, Onur, and Elvan for having me over to eat last week, the Turkish cuisine was great!

-  "Zimmer" means "room" in German.

- When I arrived here March 1st, I was one of the first new students to move in.  I was very lucky in finding gold mines in the halls from past students who had left.  More than half of all my kitchen wear I adopted from those who had moved out :)  I even scored two ping pong paddles!

-My cooking facilities include a refrigerator w/ freezer section, sink, stove, and Microwave.  I purchased a toaster oven for 25 euros as well.

- Food is relatively cheap to buy at the grocery store in Germany.  The Turkish döner is amazing.  Something we are definitely missing out on in the US.  Unfortunately, No Mexican food here...

Here is a German song I found that really speaks to my position in life these days.  Lyrics are written below.

He is alone in his room stands before the mirror And sings his songs

She has written years To all firms in your city But it never came back what

He really wants to always Travel world-wide Saves all that he has

She plays a thousand small roles And wants to go Hollywood have it all here, so sick

Let your old life behind you And go through this new door

This goes out to all spinners We are the winners We know no limits From this day - forever

This goes out to all spinners Because all had no meaning Without spinners like you and me

He's actually Elvis Presley Only born again People are already seeing

She brings the plates for many years and saves every penny For her own cafe

Let your old life behind you And go through this new door

This goes out to all spinners For we are the winners We know no limits From this day - forever

This goes out to all spinners Because all had no meaning Without spinners like you and me

This goes out to all spinners Because they are the winners We know no limits From this day - forever

This goes out to all spinners Because all had no meaning Without spinners like you and me (spinners like you and me)
