I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me. The group of friends that Jan went to uni with are having a kind of reunion in Karlsruhe. Most of them live here anyway, but we don’t see as much of them as we’d like, but others have moved away so they’ll be coming down.
It all starts tonight when Jan and I shall be cooking. Last year his friend Eff married a Japanese girl. I didn’t go to the wedding because it was on a Friday, 10 days after I started an internship. Not the best time to ask for a day off! Jan was there though. At some point during the evening all the guests played musical chairs (kids games at a wedding – strange people the Germans!). Whenever someone failed to get a chair and had to leave the game they were given a piece of paper with instructions on, some nice thing to do for the happy couple. Jan’s said “invite the bride and groom to your place in May 2008 and cook something nice for them.” Of course, Jan being Jan, he didn’t actually manage to invite them for dinner in May. So tonight he’s finally getting round to it. This means I’ll be going round to his place tonight to help him cook, and I’ll be staying the night (a fact that his flatmate wasn’t too pleased about but tough. it’s not just his flat!)
The cooking shall be followed tomorrow by an activity for all – karting. There were various options for things to do (I wanted to go paintballing but too many people said no to that. Boooo). The choice was eventually made for go karting, because it was the only indoor suggestion and the weather forecast doesn’t look good. So karting it is… my legs hurt just thinking about it!
The evening shall be spent recovering with a meal and some drinks at Vogelbräu, a local brewery, then on Sunday morning we’re all going for breakfast somewhere… location to be decided.
Phew. Lots going on. Told you it was going to be a busy weekend! So I’ll be back on Sunday evening to tell you all how it went.
In the meantime have a great weekend people.
