Update from abroad

Hello everyone. I’ve been in Germany for four days. The food situation is going ok. I did not have a refrigerator in my room at the hotel, which was disappointing. The next day I was complaining to one of my co-workers that my drinks are always warm – there is no ice-machine here. They asked why I didn’t put them in the refrigerator.


So, it turns out some of the rooms have refrigerators, with a two burner stove top, and a sink. I asked the front desk if I could switch rooms, and they said they would have one available the next day. So I now have a refrigerator.

There is a supermarket within walking distance, so I was able to buy a salad in bag to keep in the fridge. I also bought some cheese, and some oil and vinegar.

The restaurant I have eaten at is a Mongolian grill – well it was really a Chinese restaurant that had a Mongolian grill. I had the salad bar and then plain grilled meat and vegetables. That all worked out well.

The German restaurant menus I have looked at and tried to decipher don’t seem to have anything I can eat. So I have been sticking with my salad with tuna for dinner, since the restaurant meal.

The hotel does have a nice breakfast buffet. There is cheese, fruit, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, and tea that I can have.

Lunch is the hardest meal of the day. Since I am working a trade show and can’t go anywhere, I pretty much rely on my Lara bars, the Trader Joe’s raw trail mix, and bananas. It’s not too bad, it just doesn’t feel like a real meal.

So that’s how it is for now. I have two more full days, here before my long flight home.
