Some days being an expat is super exotic, interesting, and blah blah blah. And then other days, it’s more like this….
Yep, that’s my boys, the Green Bay Packers, with a side of German beer. And it’s halftime so you get a quick post.
There aren’t a tremendous number of things I miss from the U.S., but I do miss relaxing on the couch on a Sunday afternoon with a fridge full of football treats (guacamole or bean dip, Snyder’s pretzels, normal pizza, etc.). Huddling around a laptop like a hobo is just not the same. (Do hobos have laptops?) Not to mention staying up late because football games start here anywhere from 7pm to 2am. Gah. But German beer complements American football just fine.
Speaking of beer, here’s a sure sign that winter is approaching….
Oktoberfest is out, Winter beers are in. Additionally, construction has started for the Nürnberg Christkindlesmarkt, so expect photos on the way from that!
And lastly, here’s something you wouldn’t see in the States… in case you can’t quite tell from the bottle above, here’s a close-up shot!
Yep, sweet, angel-faced cherubs or Kinder enjoying their seasonal beer. I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a bottle of Miller, Bud or Coors with kiddos on the label. Cultural differences are fun! And in this case, kind of adorable.
