First day at school…

So, I woke up. Wonderful. Had a cup of coffee and a pretzel. Gathered my stuff and went to the S-bahn, so far so good. I positioned myself on the platform and started to wait. A lady said something on the speaker, which I didn’t understand. It was two minutes until the bahn was to come. I waited 30 minutes… AND I had to walk from the main station, it took me 10 minutes to get where I wanted to be. Found the classroom and waited a bit more. After a little while all was there and the session could start. The frickin’ teacher spoke German during most of the time! I REALLY had to concentrate in order to understand bits of it… At least I’ve learnt something today. Wer bist du? 😉

The Speed of Germans

Now I have been living here in Germany for soon four weeks, there’s a thing I’ve noticed about Germans; they take a lot of time to answer e-mails. At least this is the case in public/governmental offices.
I have written an e-mail and waited for about a week for the answer, nothing.  Then another through a “contact form” a few days ago. Nothing.
I mean, how hard can it be to write a fricking e-mail?! It shall be interesting to see how long this will actually take.
