Ashwin at the start of the internship: " Germans are quiet. They always follow rules."
Ashwin while returning back: "Man, Germans are crazy."
So what exactly happened in between : " FIFA World cup 2010 "
Literally half of the city meeting at one square, german flags everywhere. everyone everywhere dancing to the tune of some german songs played at central square. Thousands of supporters singing : " Super Deutschland, Super Deutschland, Ole Ole ". No traffic rules being followed. So much noise in streets that Kolkata all of a sudden seems so quiet. This is football in Germany. This is the crazy side of Germany.
Other than this what I would probably miss is the variety of food I had the chance to taste in this journey. From turkish food ( doner kebaps, lahmacun, pide ) to italian ( pizzas, pastas) to some mouthwatering german breads (pretzel) and other items like auflauf and traditional arabic meals. We also tried traditional german beer and wine. My favourite is the doner kebap , Italian ice cream and rose wine.
That's it. Hope you enjoyed as much in reading the blog as we did in sharing our experiences.
