Germany is such an interesting place. I'm sure you all know by now how much I love the Germans, in spite of all their silly quirks. Over the past couple weeks, I've remembered a few more things that make the Germans oh, so lovable.
So. Only in Germany....
- do people get a kilo of asparagus as a birthday gift. I'm not even kidding, you guys. Almost every German that I have ever met is obsessed with "Spargel." They buy it by the pound (or the kilo, even!), and they will eat it as often as humanly possible. And yes, someone I know really did get a kilo for her birthday.
- do people wear socks with sandals and consider it fashionable. I hate to say it, but the stereotype is true. At least in this town it is. I think they're a little more fashionable in the big city. But not really.
See? The Germans can be silly. But you bet your bottom dollar that I will have a bajillion posts like this once I get back to America and am dealing with that culture shock.
So. What things "only" happen in your town?
