After such a wonderful meal plus the alcohol, the couple wanted to take us to a local bar. We waited in a short line to be admitted where we paid 3 euros each to proceed. When we entered the main floor, we were surprised to find that the majority of the attendees were young. Yes, I know Tim and I are young but I am not being overdramatic. We were easily 8 years older than 90% of the population especially since the drinking age is 19. But they were even admitting “kids” younger than 19 but just not allowing them to drink. Obviously we went on “teen night”. What was even funnier was that fact the main floor resembled a junior high dance. The girls were literally on one side of the room and the boys on the other. Tim and I felt like lame chaperones so we decided to call it a night.
I believe we are settling in the new country quite well. I still feel rather intimidated with the language. It sounds like a jumbled mess when the natives speak. However I plan on getting back into Rosetta Stone shortly and know that I can practice my German with the natives daily. Tomorrow we are headed to another town for sightseeing and Italian food!
Auf Wiedersehen (Goodbye! in German)
