So proud of myself!

Some old friends came down today from Bamberg. They got lost and couldn't find Toys R Us. We found them and went with them. I had been looking for a puzzle for my daughter and found one. So I get in line, the long A$$ line. Almost there and a very German sounding lady tells me (as much as I could understand) that she was opening and could take me on the next register. It was difficult to understand her but I did it. I am so proud of myself, mostly because I have been scared to go out to the economy mostly due to language barrier! I'm gonna get there before I know it!

Ok, yay!
But, when did Bamberg get a Toys r Us? Damn, things have changed since the early 90s.

 Awesome! The language barrier would probably keep me from talking to a lot of people. Im super shy as it is, but getting better!
