Cake for breakfast (Sara)

We are going to visit our friends in South Germany in the summer holidays and I want to share with you my absolute favorite moment whenever we visit them:

I wake up in the morning to the chirping of birds and I can hear the lovely mother, Maria, rummaging around in the kitchen downstairs making breakfast. I sneak into the bathroom, trying not to make any noise because everybody else is still sleeping. When I come down the stairs, I sit down at the kitchen table and Maria has a hot cup of tea and a piece of her freshly-baked cake ready for me. (Maria and her family eat homemade cake for breakfast, yummy!) By the time that I finish sipping on my hot tea and eat the last crumbs of the delicious cake, everybody else will have smelled the mouthwatering scent of tea and cake . They come down the stairs and sit down, read the newspaper, have breakfast and talk about what we are going to do that day. These are moments of total peace and happiness to me.

Looking forward to seeing you guys!

Get your feet tapping (Lia)

If this song, “Pencil full of lead”, sung by Paolo Nutini doesn’t get your feet tapping, I don’t know what will. For those of you who are interested in Paolo’s origins, his wikipedia page says he is Scots with Italian roots. What better combination to woo the hearts of women fans?

funny (Sara)

May is finally showing its sunny side and a lot of guys from my school walk around in shorts. My friend looked at all of the hairy man-legs and made a comment, that really cracked me up:

Oh look, they are wearing nature socks!

Keeping our City Clean (Lia)

We have a lot of good folks keeping our city clean. There is this guy, for instance, that actually carries out a daily clean up route around our home.

He has this (looks like) home made tricycle that he uses to store his tools and the large trash bin he places all the garbage he collects off the sidewalks and from the small trash disposals in the pedestrian zone.

Birthday Wishes from a Flashmob (Lia)

Mukhtar is a bus driver in Copenhagen. You can tell he was worried when a trumpeter started playing on his bus. Would the other passengers complain? Then it gradually became clear that almost everyone on the bus was there to wish him a happy birthday! -Thanks, Hanan!

It is well worth waiting for the last scene. Sniff.
