As soon as Martina picked me up from the airport, she drove me home to the apartment, where I changed clothes and then headed to a wedding with her and her parents. Since my flight had been delayed, we showed up late (so I shouldn't say we went to a wedding, but rather a wedding reception)...but this meant free food and drinks and I was starving. Here are some photos of the apartment, etc.
^^^^ view from the kitchen... where I have been eating with Martina...she has been so gracious and feeding me every meal, even when I say no....weird - I am used to eating one meal every few days (Caroline can attest to this).
^^^^ living room... where Martina and I watched Du, Ich, und der andere (You, me, and Dupree) last night... definitely funnier in English...Owen Wilson dubbed in German just isn't quite the same.
^^^^ kitchen....Caroline, there is a dishwasher and an oven. Can you believe it??
^^^^ view from my bedroom window...I will post pics of my bedroom as soon as I get more settled in...
Note: While moving into the apartment with Martina's help, I had a major flashback to moving my things into IK....Martina lives on the 3rd floor (which, in USA terms = 4th floor) and there is no elevator in the building... I immediately thought of Gena and myself moving our extremely heavy suitcases up the stairs of IK that snowy day in February 2009.... that was rough.
