As we are getting more and more accustomed to our new life in Vienna, there are inevitably things we are missing from our "old" life. I think I can speak on behalf of both of us when I say that the number one thing that is missed is all our friends back in LA. (Not that we don't miss those of you in Denmark/Iceland, but it's different because we are used to being far away..) We are doing our best to get out there and meet people, because that is obviously what it takes in the beginning. Nobody will knock on our door and say: Hey, let's go and drink coffee and be best friends. And if somebody did, I'm not sure I would want to be friends with them anyway.
I miss my dear neighbors, but even though my new neighbors don't cook for me as Nazish and Kiss, I must say that I have quite a good impression so far. I have talked to three of them and that is more than I have ever talked with any of my neighbors back in Copenhagen. One has a dog and I of course had to mention that if he is ever out of town I will happily dogsit. He replied that I was also welcome to walk the dog anytime. Weeh! Then there's an old lady from Romania and another guy just knocked our door to ask if he could take the broken lamp we left outside and we chatted a bit (in German mind you...). Nice guy too.
Tonight we are going to a birthday party to practice our German and hopefully meet more people.
