After my course today, we went to the cafe downstairs, and practiced our German. We talked about the weather in Germany, and how we couldn't speak the language well enough, and languages in general and how they are thought in schools. We did it all in German. I really had forgotten, and missed the feeling of being stretched to the limit, with that conversation. Maybe some of my sentences came out badly, and maybe the grammar was crap, but we still had the conversation. We talked about a range of subjects and managed to get our points across in German. Fantastic! It was the first time I've managed to do that in a situation where I couldn't switch into English and had someone translate for me.
So, we moved all our stuff to the new apartment in Daglfing over the weekend. It took us three trips, in a van and the car with the seats down. We should be able to get everything else done in a single trip on Wednesday :-) Haven't figured out how we're getting there yet - we'll fill the car and take the train while Andreas drives maybe? There are some bookshelves to move too, which are 3m high. They can be dismantled and will fit in the car if the front seat is down. That means only one person can go with the car. Yummy, logistics. We're not going to have an Internet connection straight away either, so I have to make sure that everything gets done for the guys in London before the end of tomorrow. Its all finished now, but I need to go see if I can break it before I give the code to them ;-)
