My German face

Exhibit A: I'm posting this picture for a few reasons...
1) You can see my kitchen at my new apartment.
2) Tall boots and a trench coat? But it's only September 18th!
3) However the main reason I took this was to show you a unique phenomenon which I call the "German face." This is the preferred expression of many Germans in public settings, like when walking around the city or waiting for the train. You have to look like you're contemplating your mortality or something. No smiling.

Exhibit B: another girl on my program took this concept to new heights. I can't look at this without erupting into laughter.

I've been living in Dresden for about 10 days now and I'm enjoying it a lot. I'm excited to discover more of it. :-)

PS: Another hilarious factoid is that I hear "It's Raining Men" on the radio at least once a day!
