My first German language class
Well, today I went to my first German language class. It went well. It is for beginners so it was vaguely familiar. I think over time I will pick it up quickly. Of course, as you can imagine, it easier to learn a language living and breathing it all day. I have two other students in my class. There is a guy from the Czech Republic and a lady from all places--San Francisco! It is great to have her in my class. She moved to Gemany to be with her boyfriend--another American in Germany for love. She and I will go out for lunch someday after class. What a weird coincidence, huh? I travel all the way to Duesseldorf and meet a fellow San Franciscan in my class. My school is only about six blocks from my current apartment. Now that I am on the subject of apartments...Our apartment is not exactly what we expected. The bathroom and the kitchen are smaller than the ones the agency sent us photos of. So, needless to say, we are looking now for a more permanent, unfurnished apartment. The neighborhood is not the best, but will do for now. We are now going to look in a neighborhood north of Old Town. That is suppose to be a better area of town. I am going to begin checking the internet for unfurnished apartments and after my language courses I will go and look at the apartments that I identify online. This time we won´t be signing a lease before we see it first. Oh well, at least our current apartment is furnished and centrally located. I will be posting more later along with lots of photos I have taken. We should have our internet connection on by Wednesday. One last note: today it is sunny, not a cloud in the sky. However, unfortunately, it is still cold....Bis bald.
