Grüße aus Deutschland! Torstai 12.06.2008 01:42

Hallo, Servus, Tschüß! Those are the words i've been repeating the whole time in Germany. I just smiled and said hallo to everyone. Zuletzt habe ich ein altes Paar gegrüßt, wenn ich mit Lena in der kleine Stadt (Emmerthal) in der Nähe von Hameln spaziert habe.Why I'm even trying to speak or write in German?

One thing that surprised me is that I can really understand a little German (or should I say Deutsch) although it's still schwer, das heißt difficult, to follow fast speaking. Haha now when I have spoked both German and English there in Germany I want to mix them together all the time. And I guess this will cause problems in reading this blog to people who can't German at all. Sorry, I do it on purpose, but still can't help it! But it's geil to notice that seven years working my ass off to learn German (or maybe not that hard working after all) has finally paid off.

I like Germany so much. All those suburbs and little towns with Fachwerkhäuser, high sharp roofs, greenish nature, leafy trees and patchy, hilly surroundings. I could definitely see myself living in Germany. And of course I was eying coming husband candidates with whom I could own a house nearby hills or mountains and rivers, but I found none. Boys were so small! I mean where are those Schrank-lookalike guys? Please prove me wrong and show me that Deutscher haben breite Achseln! However I love Deutscher, especially their eyes: dark Augenwimper und Braue.

Kulturaufschläge, I mean kulturbumbs oder kulturkrocks in swedish were a little bit.


2. Why don't German people hurry? My host family's girl Lena woke up at six o'clock when the school started at 8.30 am. Is this a common habit all over Germany? If my school begins at eight o'clock I woke up frühstens at seven.

3. Auch Essen dauerten so lange. I was always the first to finish eating and then I just said "I won the eatingcompetition, again."

4. And in the stores cashiers put changes to the table not to my hand despite I reached it.

5. I was also amazed that people didn't know much english, but because of the dubbing it's understandable and obvious.

6.One thing that is zusätzlich different to Finland is the fattening and unhealthy food. Cheese is so fatty and the slices are very thick. Even in the milk there is 3,5% fat. I've used to drink milk that contains 0% fat. But anyhow people don't look like they're eating such greasy food. Finns are fat people with all those big people's diseases like cardiovascular diseases, but our food is so much lighter. I wonder why it is the way it is. Maybe I just made up the theme for my future master's thesis (if I even go to an university).

7. When I said "Ich möchte Wasser, bitte.", I got mineralwater. Why I don't get water without bubbles?

8. The clothes for women in the stores are somewhat weird. Or then I just didn't find the right shops beispielsweise when walking alone down the streets of Berlin. I just walked 7 hours in the downtown Berlin while others were looking at Flocke und Knut im Zoologischen Garten Berlin. Once in a while I left the heart center to view places. My legs were hurting in my high heels and I just wanted to take my shoes off and walk with bare feet, as normally. Next time I want tips where to buy geile Klamotten. Ok?

In spite of all the little differences I'm going to move to Germany some day. At least go back for another five days. Also du komischer, spontaner, freisinniger, prächtiger, selbstständiger, interessanter, liebender Abenteuer mit ein bisschen Lust auf Reisen ruft mich an. Ein Bild wäre toll.

ps. you can find a few pics in my albums.
pps. Finland or Finnish isn't the same with Russia or Russian and our currency is euro as well. Oh yes, and we don't have polar bears or cold weather in summer either like somebody thought.
