** Decided to do interviews with the kids on their first impressions of Germany. I’ll try to update every month as they experience new things. I did these in no particular order with no questions in mind. I typed out the responses as they answered them.
We’ve been living in Germany for about ten days now. What are your first impressions of Germany?
There is a lot of candy. It’s good so far.
What’s been your favorite part so far? Why”?
The hex bug game we got. Definitely. So you basically are a chef and you have to trap the hex bug. The hex bug is a maniac and it can’t control itself. You have to make a path with forks and knives to lead them to their trap.
Most difficult things about living in Germany?
Definitely the walking. It’s really difficult. If it’s short it’s fine. If it’s long … it’s difficult.
Are you nervous about going to school? Why?
Pretty much nervous. Cause there is going to be a lot of people. Some of them might not know English.
What do you think about living in a tiny apartment versus our big house?
Difficult. First it’s uncomfortable to sleep with little J. J is fine but I’m not.
(He hasn’t slept with little J.)
What’s been your favorite food so far?
Potato pancakes with apple sauce (Kartoffelpuffer mit apelmus)
What are you most excited about getting to do or try?
To go to the next zipline place. The first one was awesome. I’m exciting about going to the next one.
What’s your favorite German word far?
Is there anything else you want to tell me about Germany?
