VAT, SCHMAT. In Germany there still exists the concept of "quality of life" (and even quality of residing), and living in a neighborhood or on a street where half of the people don't call the place home can and often does reduce your overall quality of life/residing (perhaps especially for families with children,…
It's Saturday; the sun is shining, the air is clean & crisp, and it's a beautiful day. And to make it even more beautiful, we're going to tackle everyone's favourite aspect of German & English ... hmmm, what could that be? This afternoon, a 3pm start, The Exchange.…
look for schwarzer Tee or Klassik Tee or Traditional Tee.
Germans don't normally add milk so images are not what you'd expect.
Black tea can be found in every supermarket inc Lidi who stock three kinds of black tea (above). Weather it's worth drinking is another question.

Hi Amanda, I hate smoking in bars as well, but the people on Tuesday nights are so awesome that I attend anyway, more often in the summer, and I will definitely be heading back in the warm weather when they open the doors and windows. Must be soon huh?
Just wanted to say that thanks to BlueCow…
We've put our disco shoes back in the closet after an incredible first party on Saturday night. If you missed it, no worries, the next event will be in May or June. In the meantime, we're going back to basics again this week. Beer, beer, beer, vodka and tonic, beer, vodka shot, vodka…
I thought I would offer my services as a hair designer for men and ladies. I used to work at a top salon in Victoria and have worked with some of the Canadian greats.
I charge 25E for a cut and blow dry. I will come to you!
Colours? Foils? Chunks? I do it all! Drop…
Dolores is OK. And by "OK", I mean, Just OK. If you've lived in Germany for a while, you're happy to get a burrito sans remoulade and corn, but if you're fresh from the States, you'd still much prefer Taco del Mar. I am of the conviction that I make a much better…
The croup really sucks. We have gone through that. Do you have a cortison suppository at home for emergencies? Your Kinderarzt will prescribe some if you don't. Ours also prescribed a Pariboy inhalation machine. In the winter I still just take my daughter onto the balcony for…
As a note, unless you or your spouse is American, you can't go JFK: by Senate rule it is only for Americans and Germans, no other anglophones.
We put our kids in a German school and are very happy with it- we were accepted at another bilingual English school and looked at JFK but we actually…
Hello nice people!
Next Saturday we're organizing our 12th Homeless Veggie Dinner. Lately the word about our humble event has spread greatly and these dinners turned into big, community events averaging on about 150 guests per dinner.
Our small team, joined by an extremely enthusiastic…

This week, come down to see the finest lineup this side of Berlin, with those Wonderous Wildfires kicking off the evening from 8.30pm, followed by UK folkie J.Mills from 9.15pm and last (but certainly not least!)…
Working building sites are not only attractive to burglars, they may even be more so to tool and material thieves who could be more of a nuisance to the owner and his contractors. External motion-detector switched LED spotlighting may be the most effective discouragement albeit only effective…
I would suggest going to see your local Schreiner or Tischler and asking if you can help out for a couple of days just to get a feel for things.
If you are lucky they will take you on as a helping hand for a while and you can learn the work-specific language that you need.
