The 2012 Meet-UP will be in Berlin!!

Come over to the forums and vote on which dates you can make it, if you're an expat blogger in Germany and plan to come!  Right now some mid-September weekends are in the lead, but with very few votes in.

I've got some posts on our Easter weekend trip coming up, but it's been a bit slow.  Yesterday we had a big ol' dim sum feast at our apartment - yes, dim sum in Heidelberg!  A friend of a friend who lives in Mannheim makes fresh dim sum out of her house and sells it - so we got together a big group and made a huge order.  It's hard to believe that dim sum is so hard to find here when it's common as dirt in the US and Canada.  Chicago even has a fast food chain dedicated only to bao.  I think Germany will catch up, though. It's really good and really really easy to love, so how could they not?  They're certainly making time on the whole bubble tea thing - it was impossible to find a couple of years ago and now you can get it at many cafe chains.  (Reports are not good about the quality, though.)


  1. Ooh, how exciting! I really hope I can make it! Berlin isn't all that far away from Hamburg. Sounds like fun!

    Have you been in previous years, too?

  2. Thanks for helping to spread the word!


I love commenters!
