I always forget how much I enjoy being alone. It’s hard to even get a minute to yourself when you have 40 people living in one house.
I just got back from wandering around Heidelberg for an hour and a half. I’m beginning to become obsessed with this town. Actually, I’m ALREADY obsessed. There’s always a ton of people briskly walking down the Haupestrauße. There were a couple people with guitars or accordions serenading those walking by. Pastry shops and little cafes dot the sidewalk. It’s amazing. I legitimately felt like a German version of Belle.
“Little town / It’s a quiet village / Ev’ry day / Like the one before / Little town / Full of little people / Waking up to say” … GUTEN TAG!
Except they wouldn’t because I learned today that German people don’t like conversation. Or talking about themselves. Or really talking a lot in general. Or at least that is true of most people over 40.
I can’t wait to do more exploring sans other Americans.
