So, it's been a while! But I have at least a couple of pictures from the last few weeks, so I thought I'd use a little computer lab time to dump them here. Not too much has been going on, although tomorrow I'm heading to Stuttgart with Rina, so that should produce some more news. For now, though, just some things I've found around Heidelberg.
First of all, food. I've found a larger supermarket, and that has been nice. But I've only gotten a couple of noteworthy things there, such as these. I had to buy them, and I'm sure you understand why.
It was just necessary. They're kind of expensive for the volume, but worth it.. at least once.
My bag was mostly green eyes.. I'm more a fan of the yellow, though.
The white of the eye has a fluffier texture. Actually, any gummi candy here involving white has this same texture. The iris was standard.
Then there were these things. Some sort of cereal bar, but not. Naturally. They were kind of odd..
In that they were a bunch of not very sweet fruit paste with some sort of weird rice paper on them. Very unexpected. I couldn't decide at first if I was supposed to eat that stuff or peel it off.
Then the most awesome thing yet, which really needs no explanation...
Another thing I've found is a new pond. This one is actually a pond, with plants and the like. And it is teeming with frogs. Teeming. It's right in the middle of a bunch of buildings..weird. Wee, thereÄs construction going on until the end of July which has caused the bus routes to change. Annoying, but it did force me to wander around looking for a new bus stop one day, which led to the discovery of this thing.
Now, I don't know how well you can see them here (as it's been resized for viewing ease).. but all those little bumps on the surface? Those are frogs.
I got a video, but I don't know if I'll upload it or not. Needless to say, I have a new favourite frog spot.
Anyhow.. back in a few days with some pictures from Stuttgart!
