So what is it like... being back in Germany after two (way too short) years in New York City? I have to admit it took a while to adjust and I guess I still haven't realized that I'm not going back to my American home for a while. I've been insanely busy cleaning up since I got here, you would not believe how much stuff one accumulates over 22 years! Thus I spent the entire last week on throwing stuff out, donating clothes (5 huge bags - thinking about Sandy's victims), meeting up with family members and friends, and working on my blog. I have to say I'm really not bored in Germany (unbelievable but true)! I'm still expecting a major breakdown though - the moment will come when it hits me that I'm not going to live in New York for the next couple years, when I realize that this is a new chapter in my life (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). Anyway, I'm quite positive about the times to come, I think Germany also has its charme and I'm gonna make the most of my life here as I did in my second home New York City.
However, today you get to see the first pictures of my home country Germany, with a new hair color (hey, it's a new start, right?)... some pictures of a real German "Weihnachtsmarkt" (holiday market) with all its glamour and glitter and wonderful colors, so enjoy!
