Die Welt zu Gast bei Freunden
When you can't travel yourself to go and see the world, it is almost as much fun to have the world come to your own place. So many cultural differences, so much potential for misunderstandings, so much to learn ;).
I just picked up my Seattle friend Kamil Michnicky from the airport last night (yes, this time I picked him up, although I let him in doubt about that until the very last minute ;)).
After feeding him and putting him to bed last night, the pupil got his first lessen this morning: Do NOT talk to your friend/temporary roommate for the first hour after getting up - he will be grumpy ;)
Intricate questions about Germany grammar are for after breakfast, DUDE - THAT'S the time to make friends! (by the way: same goes for guitar playing ;))
