Die Sonne scheint, und der Himmel ist blau. (The sun is shining and the sky is blue.)

This is the first compound sentence my cute little German class learned at the Academy. Although initially used to describe the weather, we began to use it to answer the question Wie geht's? (how's it going?). It was rather odd for visitors to hear that the sun was shining and the sky was blue when it had been cloudy for a week, but the nine of us understood completely.

What does this have to do with anything? Well, today die Sonne scheint, und der Himmel ist blau in every sense. My first few days here were very dark (only in the literal sense), and today it is so sunny and beautiful out (but freezing!). I'm going to take some pictures of the place where I run so I can post them when I figure out how.

GrĂ¼sse aus Deutschland!

  2. Okay, so commenting requires you to open a blogger account (annoying, but quick and painless, so I did it for you.)
    Happy Groundhog Day!...I hadn't noticed that it was groundhog day, so I'm not sure what Punksatawny Phil said, but it seems that we're just going to skip winter this year. I'm good with that cuz my snowboard buddy is overseas:(
