welcome to Berlin?

The first few days here in Berlin have been a little bit of a blur due to jet lag, but for the most part it has been an easy transition.

Except for the toilets. They are awful. It has gotten to the point where I'll find myself daydreaming about toilets back home. Sigh, they're soooo dreamy.

To your right you will notice EXHIBIT A: the dreaded Poop-ledge toilet, which is hands down the worst invention I have ever heard of. When you go number two, your poop will just sit up on that ledge, watching you. Judging you.

My flat-mate, Jake, informed me that it was possibly designed because the Germans ate so much meat that they would need to inspect their poop for worms. After this little bit of info was passed on to me we both agreed going Vegan could be apart of our near future. Although Jake did order PEPPERONI pizza last night, which was actually quite delicious.

I'm only here for four more months. Wonder if I can hold it that long...


  1. Think I prefer the Asian style squatty potty to this German model. Good luck with that! :-)

  2. This is funny. What's not funny is you disappearing from facebook never to be seen or heard from again. Where'd you go? I don't know if this comment will reach you but if it does I'd love to know what you're up to. Unless of course you disappeared on purpose in which case FINE!!! It's Theresa Walker, just thinking bout cha. : )
