Our first day of classes at Uni. Salzburg
Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Now that our intro. German courses are done, we're officially students at Uni. Salzburg. Here are the courses we've enrolled in:
Nationalism (Sandy), German (Sandy), Fascism (Sandy and me), Austrian Culture (Sandy and me), WWII (me), Hiter und das dritte Reich (me), Mozart (me). The last two are taught exclusively in German, which I like, but not as much as the fact that I don't have any class on Fridays!
I had WWII yesterday, and I knew the moment I saw our professor that I was going to like the class. He walked in wearing straigt-leg, slim-fit jeans, a button-down shirt with a cardi, pointed leather shoes, and thin-rimmed glasses. I have never seen the HP movies, but he reminds me of a nerdier version of Gilderoy Lockhart. The best part, though, is that he walked in with his dog, Bianca, on a leash, set a blanket down in front of the class, and began the lecture. The dog sat their patiently and obediently and I couldn't stop thinking about how well-behaved the dogs are here. And they're all so beautiful too; most of the owner/dog paris I've seen walking through Salzburg remind me of the opening scene in 101 Dalmations where Pongo and his master are looking for their prospective mates.
After class, I took the bus to St. Sebastian to see Sandy and Kayla. Sandy wanted to go to a coffee shop and do some reading by herself, so Kayla and i walked to Spar to buy dinner ingredients. WE bough spinach spätzle and cooked it with zucchini, tomato, carrots, pesto, etc.
And that's how you have a great first day of school!
