First of all, happy Reformation-day! I was told, it is some religious Holiday, but since Iâ€™m not allowed to enter any Churches (The Holy Water boils the Moment I enter the door) Iâ€™m not sure what is celebrated/mourned/whatever. But, since I donâ€™t know, I donâ€™t got an opinion at all. And, since Iâ€™m already 2 Months in Dresden, I could sum up my experiences with these strange people:
The City itself is rather beautiful, but it depends on the comparison. l Since Iâ€™m bavarian, I consider the stuff they call beer around her an insult. Tastes like water, smells like the yellow stuff, all in all disgusting. The folks itself are a pretty strange crowd. They all vote either conservative or right-winged parties, but they donâ€™t think it through. Which is kind of their signature – the not thinking – thingi. The decided to enter capitalism a few years ago, now they complain on loosing in the game of money and power. Well, duh, who doesnâ€™t?
They drive like psychotic maniacs and see driving rules rather as a guideline than a rule. But that is still nothing compared to the streets, which remind me of topological maps.
Also, if you donâ€™t have your life planned out at the age of twelve and do it with a lot of sports and enthusiasm for boring, stupid stuff, I wouldnâ€™t course my worst enemy with, you are considered â€œStrangeâ€. Says who, I ask myself. On the Plus – Side there has to be said that they have a lot of beautiful houses and architecture round here, and I donâ€™t mean one or two, I mean whole quarters. And the rent is pretty cheap. The girls also. Not mine, but the others.
Another Strange fact is that there is a Asian Food and Turkish-Food-Stand around every corner, and with them being so spread, you should think everyone around here eats lots of shish kebab and Moo-Fung-Bo-Pei, but Nope, they donâ€™t. Strange, Isnâ€™t it?
The people I got to know (and In one case, got to Like a lot (I have to say that, or I get the Icewater-treating the rest of the week) Seem pretty much crazy to me. Donâ€™t get me wrong, they sure are nice, calm, funny citizens, but the question is â€œOne which planet?â€. Iâ€™m sure far away from home.
And since I am where no man has been before (Her father gave me permission!) the next few Updates should be pretty exiting…….
Oh, and concerning the Newest President of the United States:
Bush is asked how he knows that the Iraque got weapons of mass destruction. Bush replies: â€œIâ€™m sure they have, and I can prove it!
I retained the receiptâ€
Letâ€™s all be happy and Cheerful, cause with this idiot in the White house we wonâ€™t have anything to laugh soon
