I've been having so much trouble with blogger. It won't let me upload any photos, and since photos are the POINT of this blog, that doesn't make updates very fun. I finally made a photobucket account to bypass the blogger uploader.
My second German course is over! It was a super fun month of meeting people, having totally new experiences, and learning lots of German. Good about that last part, huh?
We capped our experience off with a day-trip to Stuttgart. It was rainy, cold, and super crowded. We explored and then spend the evening in the Opera seeing "Norma" a tragedy. The Stuttgarter Oper was so pretty! I spent the day reading cookbooks, looking at clothes, and examining pricey kitchen gadgets. My friend Emily and I ended the exploration with a trip to Starbucks. That wasn't the only American thing I found! Kaufhof has a whole shelf full of American items from taco kits to beer. And 5 Euro Duncan Hines cake mix. Hah. I can make a perfectly good cake without it ;)
And Dirndls in the prom dress section:
I want this purse. A lot. Too bad it wouldn't match any of my clothes:
The juice bar. Yes, my tiny drink cost 3 Euros. Yes, it was my first American-Style smoothie since being in Germany.
Browsing and window-shopping is so much fun :) You get all the enjoyment of shopping-shopping without all those difficult decisions lol. We headed back to the Oper for our evening show. Lights go down, curtain goes up:
