So, what’s different?

Feb 13, 2005

As the snow falls outside (yay!), we start packing up our stuff to leave the Heidelberg area. Tomorrow, we plan on turning in our rental car, and hopping on a train. Not sure yet where all we’ll go tomorrow. Maybe a boat trip on the Rhine and a B&B in a little town, maybe just hightailing it to Bruges. We’ll see. Also, a few housekeeping things: I have no idea what access I’ll have to the internet once we leave our lovely free high-speed internet here at Mark and Kathy’s. So, if you dont hear from me for a week or two, that’s why. Also, this post comes on the tails of another one from our lovely guest author, Aaron. So make sure you see that one. Now, onto the actual post!

So, since we’re leaving Germany soon, ever since I got to Germany I’ve wanted to tell you some of my observations of things that are different between Germany and America.

I love that this stuff is different. And I love that it’s so consistently different, too. I’m not sure what it is, but I just love that there are things you can only find in certain areas of the world. If everything looked American over here, it would just drive me nuts. It’s kind of like why it creeps me out that you can buy tomatoes and raspberries at the grocery store in January. I like seasons. I don’t want June to look like January. I don’t want America to look like Germany.
