Nice flower hat buddy
It was 5pm. Wednesday, we agreed, me and my wonderful colleague to meet at the office lobby for a small shopping. We got into her car, a nice car and head first to a book store. I must tell you all about my wonderful colleague, a pretty sweetheart with Big Heart. She bought two books to be sent to her friends, one just as a present and another as a birthday gift. By the way, she is a lawyer (not normal for lawyer to be this crazy) and not normal to hang out with an engineer. AWs, she always does this, everytime she goes back to Berlin
or Hamburg, she sends back post cards to make friends Happy. I have received 2 thus far. She is my best and only friend in this gloomy Kassel
and she is also my counsellor so to speak.
Serious looking lawyer
So we head then to Deutsche Post office and sent out the books wrapped in envelopes. I had to be the unpaid 'servant' to help with wrapping. Fantastic. Then we head to the Butcher to buy some smoked meat and encouraged me to try a smoked lamb slice after much persuasion from her and the owner. Fine. Nice. Ok, then we head to Kassel downtown as I mentioned of wanting to go to Cologne
(her hometown really) to join the Carnival. So, let'g go, she said to look for suitable costumes, 'what do you want to be'....HAH...what a fantastic question....... hmmm....so I said I always tot I was an Amerindian in my last birth and my name was Standing Eagle...zo...we went on shopping spree and I have to add some photos to show how civilized is a lawyer and engineer team when comes to shopping.
Yeah funny looking lawyer
We did shop-hop to check options and then we really had great time shopping. Trying on some Carnival hats, cloths, accessories while taking pcitures in a Prestigious Shopping Center oblivious to curious German on-lookers who might have thought these are 2 crazy 'hooligans' from elsewhere than Germany. Well, who cares, we are 2 little kids having fun so why bother society......especially in Germany, it is so easy to be yourself, I guess.. We continued to engage in a very technically challenging analytically pursuing motivating shopping selecting what best to wear for the upcoming Cologne Carnival. What I was missing really is an axe or a bow and arrow. I still need to look for these lol. Being a Red Indian, is just easy for me, I am already an Indian, just need to paint me red ...hhhmmmm.....There was so much of fun, we decided not to buy anything right now.
..so we head on shopping for some food while thinking, well my lawyer friend suggesting if I am nice to her, she would cook for me...then again, being nice, I said we will have dinner outside (not because she is a bad cook...no no no..she is an excellent cook. She had cook for me in Berlin too) because I want her to have good time so I said it is my treat...so we went for dinner and never knew how much of fun we would have there...I will write in another travel blog...
It was very unfortunate I could not go to this Carnival to Cologne as I had to fly to Yemen. But, I am going to Cologne for this Easter next week and hope it will be fine and super.
