Actually this is exactly one year ago, and finally i am Posting IT today :)
Last weekend my friend Mai I met in New York visited me on her way home to Tokio, Japan. I was very happy, when she told me she is coming to my town Freiburg to meet me So I made some plans, what I could show her, what we could do and especially what we are about to eat!
So this is also kind of a little Tour Guide for you as well ;)
After work I went straight to the trainstation to pick Mai up, unfortunately we missed each other and so I went to the hotel she was staying in near by. She haven’t arrived yet so I waited for her some time and when she finally showed up I was so overwhelmed to meet her again!!!
I waited for her in the lobby for she could bring her stuff to her room. We walked through the city, I showed her some place but we both were starving. So I took her to one of my favorite places “Oma’s Küche” (granny’s kitchen) and we had dinner. Yummy!!!
I had “Käsespätzle” and a “Radler” (beer mixed with sprite), Mai had the same, for I highly recommended Käsespätzle (and I always do!)
After dinner we went to the place I regularly go every thursday. “Freiburg Bar” for tonight’s karaoke night. It was sick! And with sick I mean great! It was the first time, Mai sang karaoke in front of more than a box full of people. You know, in Japan it is “tradition” to sing karaoke in boxes and not in front of an audience.
Andi and Luise :D
With Carina and Luise
Me, Jun and Mai
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew…
She was singing “Colours of the Wind” (Pocahontas) and it was so beautiful!!!
But when “Ich war noch niemals in New York” came up we were partying so hard, happy about the here and now and happy about having met one year ago in NYC!!!
After the last song (2am) I brought her to her hotel and I went straight to bed, for I had to get up in the morning for work, as I have to every day :P
Mai visited me at work and I showed her around.
