So my first day in Germany was a whirlwind. It felt like the span of 3 days (probably because I was trying to fight the jetlag). But I ended up doing that very european thing of sitting at a table outside with friends, drinking coffee and talking about life and men. It was the majority of my day. I officially had my first authentic German meal, which put me in a deep, dark food coma shortly afterward. After a few hours of rest, I ended up at some friends house to pre-party before going out for the first time. Its funny, because im the only one that cant speak German (obviously), but everyone is so nice that anytime they say something in german, they tell me on the side what theyre talking about. When we all went out to this club, I met even more incredible locals. I had really good conversations with people who were very happy to meet an American, as I was to meet the Germans. And though I try to shy away from all generalities, I have to say that every German I met thus far has been incredibly welcoming and kind. Its been only one day and Ive already been overly impressed with this country.
Today, im taking it easy. Ill try to take photos now since ive neglected to do so until now. :) I hope you all have a wonderful day, yourselves!
