Phew.

Apologies for the lack of cake on Friday… I was running around all day and to be honest, it was too darn hot for cake anyway. So no sweets this week. Mostly it’s been sweat instead. And if you teach Germans, they tend to pronounce those words exactly the same way, so that’s what we worked on this week. Small difference in meaning there. Yep. It’s been too-hot-to-function-hot, as I like to say, so this week was pretty much spent working, drinking beer, and searching for the ever-elusive breeze. Spoiler alert: there isn’t one. 

Luckily though, we had a pretty insane lightning storm last night that finally took some (note that I say ‘some,’ not ALL) of the humidity out of the air, so it’s slightly more bearable today. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before, but if any people out there reading this are considering moving to Germany, please take into consideration your level of dependance on air conditioning. If you can’t live without it, you might want to consider moving elsewhere. Because it is definitely not the norm here. And on that note, I’m off to throw in another load of laundry because it’s very important to keep the few clothing items that I can wear to work in this sort of weather clean. And maybe have a beer too. Because when do you get to drink something in the U.S. that’s been made since 1050?

  1. @cliff: haven't tried it at an abbey biergarten or elsewhere. Putting it on the list though!

    @steve: everything is better vom Fass in my opinion. Also, I'm typing this at 7.30am while waiting for my ride to work and listening to the cover mix. Country 'gin and juice' definitely makes Monday better so thanks!

  2. It's part of the charm. The hot, sweaty, charm. 🙂 Luckily it's really only nasty hot like that for a few days. We'll live.

    Thanks for the comment!
