In German 202 we were forced to watch all 53 hours and 25 minutes of a horrendous docu-drama (I just made that up) called Heimat.

That really doesn’t have anything to do with anything besides that I find myself in a new home. I moved into my Kölner apartment this evening, and have already rearranged the furniture (though unfortunately have one chair that I don’t know what to do with), found the nearest grocery and drug stores, and made an epic list of things I need to make this place complete.

I’m already living the high life in comparison to my last place, at the very least in the fact that I have a full length mirror and will no longer have to catch my shadow in the balcony sliding door to check out my outfit below my neck.

I’ll post pics in the near future, but for now I’m going to enjoy whoever’s free wireless I’ve been able to snag and dream about a trip to Butlers in the near future.

    Oh Heimat…what a treasure. Your new apartment looks fabulous. I’m thoroughly impressed that your bathroom wall tiles are the exact same ones I had in Freiburg. The sink too. I guess that’s further proof that once the Germans get something good, they just keep going with it…like lederhosen….still popular since the 18th century.
