Five times curry rice in one week…
I’m feeling like an old man. Elbow and jaw are getting better but now I can’t put pressure on my left ankle. Last night, I had to turn off the air conditioning because I didn’t know how to tell it that I wanted hot instead of cold air (works now). It got ice-cold, my cold that’s been on the mend got worse again and I got a cough as well.
I know I was completely healthy when I left Germany.
My calendar shows the next four weeks. That’s the time left, here in Germany:
I don’t know if it’s really that hard but in Germany we drive on the right side of the street. So if you’re the slowest car on the Autobahn your place is the inner lane and only the inner lane!
Unlike Nanx I was only two hours without water and it was because of renovation works two floors below. But I don’t think that in her case a worker appeared every thirty minutes to look whether the water is finally turned off or to tell that from now on the drain mustn’t be used as well. And I had planned not to stand up until they’re done.
Update: Arrg, there’s no hot water anymore. The best I get is lukewarm. :(
When the lady at the doctor’s office had learned that I’m at a private rather than the compulsory health insurance two weeks ago, the next appointment was no longer in January, it was yesterday.
Another one at another doctor today, but the outcome was similar: They didn’t send me into the waiting room where others have been sitting for some time. I was offered a chair next to the reception and led into the doctor’s office soon.
Moral: All humans are equal, as long as they’re at the same health insurance.
Since November 1st you don’t only need a mugshot to apply for a German passport, they also scan your fingerprints…
The fact that Tongji needs the serial number of my passport revealed a minor bug in the passport application software. The number on the screen was not the same as on the print-out and no one knew which of them was correct.
After a while we found out that the field isn’t long enough, the missing characters are just hidden and it’s possible to scroll to the end and show them. So I hope I have all the things they need for the visa.
Same wrong way, same traffic jam, but this time I took the right road back and only lost twenty minutes. So how could that happen again? I usually take the highway when driving home from university and the autobahn when I go to Munich. The problem is that they closed the highway due to road works and I have to take the autobahn in the other direction. Well, I’m not used to that, followed my habit and took the wrong ramp…. twice…. 🙄
