We made it to Germany!

Phuong and I have had many jollies, having difficulties with the simplest tasks (like using their public phones!). Although sometimes the cultural barrier has made things a tad stressful, all in all we are having so much fun!

Currently, I am on a pay computer with 3 minutes left, so I apologize if I have to cut this post off abruptly. So far, Phuong and I have gone to see the Neues Rathaus and the Alten Rathaus, and we saw the Glockenspiel dance. I ate a Bavarian pretzel, and we've also enjoyed the small cafes where you stand to eat and drink.

The Virketualien Market was our favorite. We've gone there a few times to buY fresh produce and fresh squeezed juices. I have fun trying to talk and order in German, but often, I have to settle saying something like 'ein, bitte.'

Time is almost up, so I must go. Love you all.... off to Prague tomorrow!

The Glockenspiel was really our first impression of Germany and Europe. I'd never seen anything like it before.

We found our first hostel! Are you supposed to be able to climb out of the windows?

Wombats was our first hostel. We chose to stay at the newest Wombats in Vienna later, too!

We expected to see lots of bakeries. While they were around, there were definitely many more fresh fruit stands!

Here I am, drinking my freshly pressed juice! These stands were everywhere, and they offered so many different varieties of juice!
