Texan Geneticist in Eastern Germany
Sunday, April 27, 2008
I realized that I am in fact learning German when I was able to understand this unusual sign I saw when walking by a hospital in Martinsried. "Hubschrauber Flugverkehr - Drachensteigen verboten!" That is some classic German.
And then on the same trip as I was waiting in the airport to get on the plane a Lufthansa employee came by and conducted a little interview with me about my travel habits and plans for statistics - and to my enjoyment without switching to English. It was like an extended German class exercise.
