Today was a lot better than yesterday. I found friends, which was very exciting: Stephanie from U of M, Sean from U of M and Mark from New Jersey. Oh, and Marissa from New Jersey.
Anyway, Stephanie and I journeyed to the Muenster, which is a beautiful gothic cathedral in the main “Platz” of Freiburg. It only cost 1 Euro to go up! And the view of Freiburg was gorgeous. After that, we got 1 “Kugel” of ice cream (I got Stratiacella, which is basically just vanilla with chocolate chips) for 80 Euro cents! How cheap is that?! Well, probably not that cheap, but it was good. 🙂
Getting a better view of the city was very nice. Freiburg is actually quite big, bigger than I at first thought it was. I still really don’t know much about the city, but I know where the dorm is and where the school is so that’s a start!
Speaking of finding the school, Steph and I went to find it. Upon reaching the school, we found our new friend Mark, who was just as lost and hopeless as we all were when trying to reach the dorm. Luckily we found him and showed him the way! Of course, the Zivis were no where to be found and he couldn’t get his room key so he put his luggage in my room.
Anyway, after that, we chilled on the balcony for a little while until we re-found Steph, who had found Sean and Marissa. Sean goes to U of M and lived in Markley. He’s also a FIJI, and has a FIJI tattoo on his ankle, which I find hilarious and ultimately a very dumb decision on his part. But that is beside the point – we all went to get food and I got my first Doener of the trip! Num num!!!! I missed them!
After that, we found our way to the Irish Pub, where the waiter politely asked us to speak in English. Funny. The beer was cheap and good and we all had a really great time. Turns out, Monday is trivia night which reminded us U of M people very much of Charley’s. And they do the trivia in English! OMG WIN.
Once back at the dorm, we finally found some Zivis and got Mark’s keys and my sheets. They didn’t do any help because Mark and I quickly figured out that the bugs in my bed are in fact fleas! Cool, I know. Again, I was very upset and this stupid Goethe-Institut is very stupid. Right. So tomorrow we are going to kick ass, as we will finally deal with adults rather than stupid Zivis.
Welllll tomorrow I finally get to go grocery shopping, since tomorrow is not Sunday or a holiday (that we know of…) and I will no longer be hungry at 2 AM, like I am right now. Grr.
Nothing too much more exciting. Tomorrow, after exploring more, I will make a post with some pictures and more details of the city. 🙂 Yay!
