Today marks our two-year anniversary in Germany. We arrived in Heidelberg on September 13, 2006. What an innocent post I wrote that day, wondering why there were two buttons on the toilets and no screens on the windows!
In other news, I am now only 6 pounds away from my pre-Germany weight. The new jeans I bought on the day I felt like the fattest chick in Heidelberg are too big. And I'm still eating Eis and regional specialties, just being more careful about it!
To celebrate these events, how about round 2 of German v. English? (Here's round 1! It was a tie!)
Which of the following words do you prefer - the English, or the German? There will be a food theme this time. Submit your ballot in the comments!
1. ginger v. Ingwer
2. cloves v. Nelken
3. potato v. Kartoffel
4. bean v. Bohne
5. mustard v. Senf
6. cinnamon v. Zimt
7. garlic v. Knoblauch
8. lemon v. Zitrone
9. cumin v. Kreuzkümmel
10. coffee v. Kaffee :)
Edited! I've added a photo of Kreuzkümmel (cumin) next to Kümmel (caraway) to show they both exist, since there was some confusion. :)
