Guten Tag!...Strolling down the street

Hey everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well.  I haven`t completely recovered from the jetlag because I could not fall asleep til about 4:30am (11:30pm in Ottawa).  Although I slept really late, I woke up around 8 am.  I got cleaned up and went to get some of the continental breakfast that the hotel serves.

Most people in Graz have some knowledge of English.. especially the younger people..some are even fluent.  When I got back to my room around 9:30 am, I decided to brush up on my German.  Anna, who`s a good friend of mine, got me a German CD language course before I left Canada (Thank God! haha)

So far, I know the important phrases such as the following..

Guten Morgen         - Good morning
Guten Tag                - Hello
Guten Abend            - Good evening
Gute Nacht              - Good night
Auf Wiedersehen      - Good Bye
Tschuss                    - Bye
Ich habe eine Frage - I have a question
Danke                     - Thank you
Bitte                        - Please 
Entschuldigung         - Excuse me
Tut mir Leid             - I`m sorry

After working on my German, I fell asleep. I woke up around 3:30 pm, took a stroll down the street and did some groceries (No way was I going to eat that tasteless McDonalds again haha).

I bought some instant foods, a few drinks, a loaf of bread, peanut butter (skippy ofcourse ;) ) and some snacks.  It only came up to 15.06 Euros.

Now I am packing my bags to check out tomorrow morning and move into my apartment. 

Til next time,
