Goodbye to Erlangen
Parting is such sweet sorrow...
Leaving Erlangen today, on the Odzucks' express. (It is not an express; Sebastian drives 140 km/hr on the Autobahn, in the far right lane. Ducks flash their beaks at us, and pass on the left, scornfully). But I am headed for Berlin, and am grateful for the chance to visit with Eva and Sebastian, and argue about the "American Dream" (our selected topic for car trip) today.
A final note about Erlangen: the weather. People have been saying that now that I am leaving, summer is finally here. Here is the forecast:
Thursday Partly Cloudy Rain
High: 22°C / 72°F. Winds: W 16-24 kph (10-15 mph)
Thursday Night Mostly Cloudy Rain
Low: 10°C / 50°F. Winds: Calm
Friday Overcast Rain
High: 21°C / 69°F. Winds: Calm
Friday Night Partly Cloudy Chance of Rain
Low: 11°C / 52°F. Winds: E 8 kph (5 mph)
I'll miss the bread, the beer, and most of all the good friends. Even thinking of the friends I made here, and how much I will miss them, makes me start to cry a little bit. But the weather....I will NOT miss the weather.
