*Someone Else's Comparisons*

Check out this post for some American/German comparisons (some are ones I've mentioned before).

I have only recently seen my first seedless grapes in Germany. Most of the time, they have those hateful seeds and I want to spit them out because they leave a dry, bitter taste in my mouth. Such a disappointment after seeing huge, juicy grapes. However, everyone else eats them, so unless I'm alone, I either avoid grapes or follow the crowd.

*Mini Dogs and Men*

I keep seeing these strong German guys walking teeny, tiny dogs that would fly through the air if you tugged on their leashes. It makes me laugh every time because American guys seem to want to be seen with what non-yappy dogs.

Once I even saw the Gohlis punks with such a dog in tow. Do the dogs belong to their girlfriends?

It's no wonder I freeze in German houses. Instead of having insulation between 2x4s and sheet rock, there are enormous stacked rock-bricks covered with bumpy wallpaper that just emanate coldness. They may be sturdy, but I miss the warmth. When you knock on a wall here, there's no way anyone on the other side is going to hear it, the knocking just gets absorbed into the rock. Thus the cold walls and the cold floors and the house shoes and sweaters around the house.
