Went to the Frankfurt zoo today with the family! We grabbed Donor Kebabs (Turkish sandwhiches with meat, cabbage, tomatos on homemade bread mmm) to eat while in the zoo from a little stand outside and then ada lead the way pretending to be mowgli for the majority of the zoo excursion!
After the zoo we walked through a shopping square and in the middle of the square was a glass closet type thing full of books. People can take and give as they wish so the books get swapped out constantly. So neat....
When the girls began to get tired we headed back home on the u bahn and made a dinner of pasta with italian sauce. I then went into downtown Frankfurt to meet Marius (Denises' brother) at nachtliblen (night life) where I bought my first beer in Frankfurt, a Jever Pilsner, from there we went to jazzkellar, an underground bar just for jazz music and dancing! My partner was this lovely large spanish grandpa, so great. Next we hit up Sauchsenhausen, full of bars and donor kebab stands. I took the nachtbus home making some new friends on the way.
I woke up this morning and went to Yoga with Denise. She taught two classes which were fantastic and then afterward she flew me! (flying is an acro yoga term where you get llifted and in some case thrown around by your partner who is lying on their back as the base) When we arrived home ada had made pizza which was delicious. I ran to the grocery store for them and right when I walked in they were closing but since I am Amerikana they let me grab what I needed which was funny because Denise had written a list with all the German names and I was trying to quickly figure out which items she wanted and decipher words, 15 minutes later though I had what I needed and had the salesclerks laughing so all in all what could have been stressful turned out quite well!
Now I am in need of a nap then time to celebrate NYE! IN EUROPE, WHAT?!
