Jetzt fange ich an!

Hey everyone, wie geht's?

Today, Tuesday the 18th, the semester started here at the Uni Mainz in Germersheim. I took the placement test and now know which courses I am supposed to take. I just have to figure out how to sign up for them. I'll have that info by the end of today I'm sure. Had a good Easter weekend, the weather was cold and rainy, though, so I didn't get out much.

This morning was cool, I went to a cafe/bar for a cappuccino (how do you spell that?) and to journal some. It wasn't that great. The place is call Picasso's and seemed to be for older-midlife crisis types. I'm not quite there yet. I left smelling like cigarettes. At least I got to look sophisticated writing and drinking my capp. I'll look for another cafe next time
Mmmm Lecker! (It was ok)
I also stopped by the Buchhandlung today and bought some supplies. I had to buy a dictionary, because I forgot mine. That was an unnecessary expenditure, oh well. I feel like I stand out like a sore thumb here in town. I am having a grand time walking around and browsing in shops and stuff.
Here are some more pictures. Looking forward to starting my classes here. I will also be able to lead the English conversation evening for English learners ('Murican English) here every other week or so at a local cafe/bar. Cool!

Little nature pond near my place, swans and ducks. beautiful.

Dictionary i bought. Not sure why I added this

This is the town square. Pretty neat

I'll take better pictures, hopefully on a shinier day. 
Love and miss all you guys,
Alles Gute!

  2. Looks like a great place. We finally got a gig at the Alley on April 29th. I'll let you know how it goes. We play from 6 to 9pm outside.

    1. That's awesome! Wish I could be there. I already miss playing guitar. Hopefully I can find a guitar somewhere here to play. You guys will rock! They will want Rockslide back for sure!
