One year later
Me: “It’s cold in here. ”
D: “I turned off the heat.”
Me: “Ohh… okay then.”
The heater is off, but the sun has come out finally, this weekend particularly. It’s glorious. Coming from Florida I take the sun for granted. Here, I appreciate the warm sunny afternoon alot more. The weather today is very similar weather to when D and I arrived here a year ago. Geez, it’s been a whole year.
We took the train to Aachen last night for our co-worker’s birthday party at his place. It was warm enough to sit on their patio, the first time this year they got to use it, and it was quite nice. Met a few people I knew from before and more of his family since they are all from this area.
Tried a German drink for the first time called Bionade, I guess it has become popular throughout Europe and getting popular in the U.S. It’s a lightly fruit flavored drink, what makes it special is that it is created in a method that is similar to beer, with malt. The creator isolated a strain of bacteria capable of converting the sugar that normally becomes alcohol into nonalcoholic gluconic acid, which he used to ferment the new drink. Anyway, it’s nice. I don’t like sodas, but this would be a good mixer or just alone like we had it last night.
