So we drove south for a lot of hours (okay, 4) and checked into a hotel that used to be a brewery and had dinner with a colleague/friend of DrBob’s, and also the c/f’s adorable wife, and that was fun. We found a really cool coffee shop, with books! We watched half of the Super Bowl, but you know, kickoff is at midnight-thirty here in Central Europe, and we had to be chipper in the morning. And on Monday I met with the Dual Career Service lady for a sort of introductory interview and we talked about what sort of things I could do, what I’d like to do, and what I can reasonably expect, and then we rented bicycles from the hotel and pedaled around the city checking out neighborhoods in case we might want to move there! Though for some reason everyone seems to want us to move to Mannheim, which is weird. Anyway, dinner was Indian takeout from right down the street and then a sauna visit (srsly, I loved that hotel!) and then a televised soccer game of Angst and Frustration. Then on Tuesday DrBob has his negotiations which I will not talk about, and then we met with another colleague/friend and drove home to a very anxious cat. All in all a good trip, and I should be tired now, but no. Drat it.
I didn’t take any pictures of Heidelberg because it’s February and the light sucks, but there are quite a few of them in the video for today’s song du jour of the day: Ich hab mein Herz in Heidelberg verloren, by Heino. Um, maybe hit the mute button before you click that link, unless you feel like marching around your room a bit. We saw an interview with him on TV, he is… um. Er. Well.
