Patriotism, Soccer and Heat

Hey you guys,
I'm truly sorry that I didn't blog as much as I wanted to but a lot of stuff was going on. First of I passed my theoreticaldriving test, which gets me one step closer to my drivers license. Since I'm going to be gone most of the next 6 weeks, I'll take the practical test (aka driving the car without crashing the car, running over red lights or even worse pedestrians while a man or women is looking at you and trying to find the mistakes you make) after the new school year already started.

Before the game
The next BIG thing, and I mean REALLY BIG, was the World Cup. In case some of you didn't know, GERMANY WON THE WORLD CUP, for the first time since 1990! Some friends and me went to public viewing for the finale. Unfortunately it started raining - no, not raining, POURING - during half time. But as supporter of the German team we stayed and got soaked. It didn't matter in the end though, because Germany won and everybody was so happy/excited. It was an amaziing feeling being there. But I think a little visual impression would help imagining:


After the game

I should probably mention that the only time Germans wear German flags, or have a German flag in their houses is during the World Cup. It's like the only time Germans get patriotic. 

And now I had to get ready for vacation. Since Friday all my friends have holidays too (not to mention that I'm having holidays for 6 weeks now ;D). Summer holidays in Germany are 6 weeks long, which isnt a long time but I'm going to travel around a little. Of course, I'll try to blog about it every now and then but I can't promise that I will have time and/or wifi.

The first week, or better tomorrow I will go with some friends to the Baltic Sea, which is up north in Germany. We have our own holiday apartment and I'm sure we are going to have so much fun!

While it was rather cold when I first arrived back in Germany, it is so hot at  the Moment. I mean it is already 10.18pm over here and I'm still sweating my boody off. Plus Germans don't believe in AC as much as Americans do, so no house has an AC here. Sometimes during the summer it is so hot that I just can't sleep in my room at all (My room happens to be under the roof too, so it's as hot as possible up there, plus my window is toward the side where the sun is in the afternoon...). On those days I prefer the guest room, the couch downstairs, or even the floor. The main thing is that it's cold(er).

I hope y'all have a great time too! Enjoy the AC for me.
