I took a silly Facebook quiz today that one of my other friends had taken. It was to find out what your inner nationality is. My friend got American and that's what I expected to get, too. I spend a lot of time here witnessing my Americanness in contrast with German society, so it's always on my mind. Instead, I got German! Have I been assimilated? :D
This beautiful weather has come with a price: allergies!! I dug out my stash of soft American tissues. This was a mistake - now the German tissues feel rougher than ever!
Note the boat in the foreground of the photo - you can rent either a pedalboat or a little motorized boat near the bridge that crosses the river near the Bismarckplatz, on the Neuenheim side. It looks like they have more motorboats this year than before, for everyone who's already experienced a pedalboat and knows that it's hell. :)
