Greetings from Germany, meine Lieblinge,
I am currently ina lovely city called Freiburg, which is practically bordering to France. I arrived yesterday by train from Frankfurt and I was surprised by two things:
- how expensive the friggin´ return ticket from Frankfurt to Freiburg was – 111 euros (that is from one city in Germany to another city in Germany. The entire journey took 2 hours and 15 min). As a comparison, I can tell you that a return ticket from Ljubljana (the capital of Slovenia) to Graz in Austria costs only 30 euros (and you go across the border and the journey takes 3,5 hrs – hello?!)
- how wonderfully orderly everything was. Well, is. All the upcoming stations were on display, there were no delays, everything fuctioned perfectly. Ordnung und Diszipline, as the Germans would say.
As I was saying, I am visiting my friend Sonja in Freiburg and after a little walk around the Schlossberg and a muscle cramp in my right thigh, we had a really lovely dinner with Mediterranean spices and garlic. Sonja´s boyfriend Simon was the cook and after a long day´s journey, a hearty dinner was all I needed.
Simon prepared chicken with potatoes and carrots. As a side dish, we had salad with a homemade yoghurt dressing. Yum.
After that, I slept for ten hours straight like a baby:)
Here are a few snapshots from Freiburg:

Tschüß for now,
