I had to buy toothpaste the other day, and I think it’s kind of cool to buy a brand that we can’t get at home… adds to the adventure! Except when you open the tube and it’s a pinkish putty colour. Looks gross, but I can handle that. But when it tastes so god awful you can barely finish brushing your teeth with it? No way. Katie did a google translate on it, and it said something about it having a salty clean feeling, or something like that. I like salt, but not when I’m brushing my teeth. Really, I think it’s an herbal toothpaste with minerals. Good in theory, but there’s no way I could use it again, so Colgate it is.
This has been a big part of my life for the past 3 months!
Ah, my first beer at Manfred and Karin’s house. I really need to curb my beer and crunchy nut habit or someone is going to have to roll me home. As it is, I’m going to have some serious (and I mean SERIOUS!) cardio to do when I return. Ah well, I’m having fun, and that’s all that matters! I’m staying with some relatives in Germany right now. They live in a small village called Bomlitz, it’s about an hour from Hannover where they picked me up from the train. Karin greeted me with a rose when I got off the train, so very sweet!
I had mail when I got there. My parents and Aunt Charlotte both sent me birthday cards because they knew I’d be here with Manfred and Karin on the morning of my birthday. I almost peed my pants laughing when I opened this card. I used to be obsessed with the Brady Bunch in my early elementary school days, AND I was in love with Peter Brady. Such a stupid show, but such good memories. Thanks Mom and Dad, that
was a really, really good laugh.

My bedside table at Manfred and Karin’s. Sour lemon candies, dark chocolate, mixed nuts and roses… the way to my heart!
