but first, new friends in the train station. i arrive in munchen this morning at 5:30 and had to wait for a few hours for my host’s wonderful boyfriend to come and scoop me up. in the meantime, three drunk germans and i shared a laugh. this one is andre. we are going to get married, and he is going to teach me to make schnitzel. we had a photo shoot. our prompt: “george bush.”
on the way home from the river, we saw a giant circle of people standing around having a dance party. people who were good dancers and amateurs alike were boogying to the middle of the circle and busting a move. everyone was clapping and cheering each other on. they all seemed to be having so much fun! just a bunch of young people dancing unselfconsciously in the square. i am pretty sure i love germany and germans and want to move here and learn to breakdance and eat sausage with them until i turn into a frumpy old frau.
