Ich spräche

Today:

*Completed my first fully in German conversation with a city employee (regarding the garbage bill). Didn’t achieve what I wanted and have to return again Monday with more forms, but it was all in German and we pretty much understood each other. A pitiful first that left me ridiculously happy.

*Successfully interacted in all German with the Post Office mistress and even walked away with the correct (expensive!) stamps (and found the self-service stamp machine on my way out. Whoops.)

*Made it home with chicken fresh from the butchers (again, completed in German. See a pattern here?!)

Looks like maybe this German class is starting to pay off.

Happy Friday!
