After a couple months of planning, the day for me to leave for Germany has finally arrived! I’ll be traveling with my roommate, his brother, and my brother. Between the four of us, my brother and I are the only ones that speak German, and my vocabulary and ability to speak are both fairly limited. I’m hoping that David’s four years of high school German will help to ensure a smooth trip for us all. Also, everyone says that a lot of Germans know English; we’ll see how much truth there is in that statement when we try to get around with our poor understanding of their native tongue.
Because I’ll be gone, I won’t likely be responding to any e-mails or Facebook pokes, and definitely will not be able to return any phone calls. I’ll tend to all these things after returning on April 6.
