THINGS I LEARNED FROM CRAZY BUT ULTIMATELY FRIENDLY GERMAN WOMAN WHILE TRYING TO GAIN INFORMATION ABOUT SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
-200 mosques in Berlin...4 in Arlington...think about it!
-there are wild boar hunts in Berlin city on a regular basis
not today, porky!-protestantism is the basis for the great style Schism: Italy(indulgent luxury) to the south, and IKEA's stark but adorable egalitarianism to the north.
-Frederick the Great used to take tall, dangerously young soldiers into his--er--offices. As a result, the bars around the palace still serve cheaper beers (used to be free as a means of keeping the boys out of the palace)
Beer actually prevents the jay!
-There are American libraries all over Berlin...not saying you should go, but they're there
-American women "always wear so strange the shoes!" referring to my tan ballet flats
