life in Germany

31 08 2006

Someone from Germany recently commented on my blog, so I checked out their site and found this article about how life in Germany is different.  A few excerpts : they don’t like having windows open to get fresh air; “thanks” means “no”; you can tell your doctor you’re stressed or mentally tired and he might write you a note to miss 3 days of work — and your employer is okay with this; people say exactly what they think (I have to admit this would be refreshing); shops close down during lunch because people go home to cook; you don’t wash your car or mow your yard on Sunday; you don’t shop on Sunday; etc.  It’s interesting.  You can read more here.

She also wrote an article about the ten things she likes most about living in Germany, and it sounds like a place I’d want to visit (for the hiking and food, particularly).  That post is here.
