Re: Living in the Wilderness

Things I've learned living in (what used to be) a lovely little farming village in the boondocks...

1. Do not be surprised when, while at the post office, you are accosted by a lady you have never met before, asking: "I heard from Frau Müller (who heard from Frau Marti, who heard from Frau Weber) that you have ordered a turkey from the butcher. How are you planning to cook it?"

2. Geranium etiquette is taken very seriously. Study local traditions - this is dangerous ground for making a serious social faux pas.

3. Nothing says 'Integrated Auslander' like a pair of snowshoes.

4. Chilbi. Be there.




All the best to you and MN - your new home sounds idyllic.
