For the first time, I’m spending time with some actual Germans (as opposed to English-speaking Germanists). They are wonderful, fun people with an amazing sense of humor, a Spanish that’s almost as good as mine, and a lot of local pride.
“I love German food,” I shared with one of the German professors.
He gave me a perplexed look.
“But you just said you’ve never been to Bavaria before?”
“No, but I’ve been to Berlin.”
“But their food is horrible. It’s disgusting swill. The only good food in Germany is in Bavaria!”
