Day #4 of the cheese spaetzle watch

Hi again from Bonn. Today was the first day of the orientation. I am super excited that the program has finally begun. My mentor came down from Berlin for the day and said he liked my presentation, which was a huge sigh of relief! He also said he I can work at the foreign ministry for a week or so and he wants to arrange a trip for me to Cairo and/or Jordan (mom, don't freak out!) The other projects sounded interesting too, but it was difficult to understand the Russian-accented German that was being spoking by some of my fellow fellows.

In other news, today is day #4 of the cheese spaetzle watch. I know this is not really the right part of Germany for this delicious German dish, but I can't believe that there is not a single restaurant in Bonn that makes spaetzle. I am on a quest and have already checked the menus of 10 restaurants or so:-)

I hear Baghdad's nice this time of year. Sheesh.

Keep me posted on the spaetzle situation. Niki and I are very concerned.

What the heck is spaetzle? My concern is that it's something weird. Think fondly of us as we batten down the hatches anticipating Katrina's visit...

Yeah, Bonn is definitly the wrong part of germany for spaetzle. You would have more luck in Baden Wuertenberg. But have a nice time in Bonn, its a small, but nice city.

Good luck on the spätzle search. And please also report when you have your first Apfelstrudel mit Vanille-Soße :-)
Looking forward to more photos.

Gutten Morgen!
Did I spell that correctly?
What a great day you had!
I really like the shoes!
Dad and I can't wait to come for a visit! I will have to try to access your blog at school before school in the morning. There are so many filters on our computers, I might not be able to get to it.
We love you! Mom
PS Did you take your vitamins? :)
