I think it's really funny- in the US, I think just about everyone would know what you mean when you say "Que pasa?". Here, though, I say that and people look at me in wide-eyed horror.
Okay, that's a slight exaggeration. But it really goes to show that the US is a veritable mischmasch (our German word of the day) of cultures and languages. Here, only Jochen has any idea what I'm talking about.
Today I finished my suesses klienes schaechtelchen! It's ganz pupsiges. Maybe tomorrow you can have a picture.
I was thinking about New England the other day- I don't really think that our leaves are brighter than anywhere else, I think that it's just the quality of light that makes them so famous. The leaves here in Germany get very bright, but because it's a perpetual fog they don't appear so. New England's unique indian summers are why we're famous for foliage, I think- we have sun! Or, at least, a little more than some other places.
That being said, all the leaves are gone here, now. We've had snow, too, but it only lasted for a day, thank goodness.
German weather this time of year is a little depressing. It rains almost every day and gets dark around 4.30, if not earlier. I just need to keep in mind that it's always dark this time of year, though, regardless of whether I'm in Germany or Boston. And it's not too too kalt yet, so that's good!
Anyway. I can't find the song of the day! It's Desengano, by Los Panchos... maybe you can find it on iTunes or something. Sorry folks. In the meantime, this is pretty cool.
Okay. Bis Morgen!
