After more than a year here, I feel pretty comfortable with things. I know where things are and how to get there, I am getting used to the insanely high prices, I am okay with my awkwardness with the German language, and I am used to my role as the foreigner who occasionally gets looks for being different.
And then something small happened that wasn't expected in the least that threw me for a loop.
I went and acquired a taste for water with gas, or wasser mit kohlensäure. With sirop no less!
Is nothing sacred?
