The last couple of days have been filled with surprises regarding this mandatory health insurance--things I wasn't aware of when I first came to Germany. I hope to sort it all out soon... but I shan't bore you with details.
Instead I will say that we are in fact three days away to the opening of the Christmas markets here in Germany! Nuremberg is all ready to go, all we need is our darling Christkind to read her poem and then the glühwein will pour out by the liters and the lebkuchen will be munched on by the bag full.
This week is Thanksgiving in America. I don't think I'll replicate my attempt at cooking a big bird like last year, probably just keep it simple but for all those celebrating: Happy Thanksgiving!
