and stupid laptops...

Yes, even here it was a bit cloudy for two days, but now again one can sit in one of the innumerable cafes on the sidewalk and enjoy the the warm breeze of the night. I have also been to another
open-air concert which was a great laugh, because before the
first band actually began to play a terrible DJ was entertaining
the croud. And succedded... The Spaniards are just a bunch of
happy people and I was positively surprised when the group of
approx. 1000 people suddenly began to follow the DJ´s dancing
instructions: to the left, right, back, forward, hands up,
hands on the shoulder of person in front of you, jump up and
down, applause...This was serious aerobics in the early evening,
not to forget the alltime hits to those the leg was swung
("Macarena" is only one example)!
I´ve never experienced something like this in Germany, guess in that case the stereotype is partly true and the Germans are a bit more serious, or otherwise have to be tipsy to let loose.
Monday, began my language course and there are about 20 more
Germans in class. Have to stay undercover! I then spontaneously
made friends with a nice Norwegian girl, who is the second
oldest after me and the teacher. As expected, I am the oldest
student and the only one born in the 70's. People were quite
surprised when I revealed my true age (thanks to my parents for
the great genes ! In the course we´re are repeating quite a lot
of grammar, but the teacher is a nice chap who always forgets to
turn of his mobile and then receives a phonecall at least once
In about an hour I´m going to move to my new flat, can´t wait!
It´s really great that I get along with my new flatmates so
well and I´m really looking forward to make myself at home.
Apart from that, only one annoying thing happened. Guess I
caught a virus and now my laptop isn´t working any longer. Hope
to get it fixed soon and wish me luck that I can recover my
pictures and music. If I´ve lost them that would really be a pity!
