I am in Frankfurt, Germany. Not alone, there are seven other guys, one of whom is dressed as a lobster. Nothing too unusual then. The details behind how all this came about will be the subject of a future post but for now I have a pressing need to find espresso.
This is a civilised place where cigarettes are on open display, cost less than half UK prices and you can smoke indoors. Yes, even in bars. There’s not much whisky around but I have seen a bottle of Tullamore Dew for 29 Euros. I should have brought a bigger bag.
The UK could learn a lot from Frankfurt. If I can learn German as well as Danish this year I think my options for moving to somewhere worth living might be considerably expanded.
