Happy Nikolaus!

Also, today is the second Sunday of Advent. I am planning to stay at home, light some candles and prepare my Christmas mail which I want to send out ASAP (especially the mail that’s going overseas).


We went to the Christkindlmarket with the German Group yesterday. Besides the fact that a) the Christkindlmarket was indoors, b) it wasn’t really cold enough for Glühwein and c) there was no hot chocolate anywhere, we had a great time.

We strolled around the market that was set up in the downstairs area. We even got to buy some German foods from the German Butcher Shop, who set up a booth at the Christkindlmarket (Erdnussflips and German style liver wurst). Later we all gathered upstairs at the “Kaffeehaus”, had some not-so-authentic German Cheesecake (oh well!) and had some quite interesting conversations about the differences between German and American culture. It’s hilarious and entertaining time and time again, and although a lot of cliches are mentioned, there is always a little bit of truth in it as well.

The German Meetup Group

Surprisingly, there are more guys in our Meetup Group than girls. Kind of curious, don’t you think?

Have a great Sunday everyone!

  1. Well, if you exclude J, then the ratio is not so bad. Hehe. :)

    I haven’t done a lot of “German things” lately. I even almost forgot Sankt Nikolaus. Oh well.

  2. J looks so serious :-). By the way, do you want to come by next sunday for Gluehwein or Apple cider?

  3. You are so cute! Why in the WORLD was there no hot chocolate?! That is a travesty.

  4. I think I wanna join a German Group when I’m back in California. Looks like fun! :)

  5. Oh here, the German Club is nearly all women, and when Jack went he got a bit bored. He so wanted to go and use his German, but the women (all his age) just wanted to gossip in German. After two times, he stopped going.

  6. Oh, I’ve missed out on reading and therefore the German meet up club! That sounds really cool! You look gorgeous.
