. We have only one bathroom for eleven people. It is fun living with lots of people though even if you never get to sleep or shower. I certainly have become less picky in terms of what we eat or do. For example, I wanted to go to Munich but since I have people to go to Prague and Vienna with, then why not go there? (Actually, Vienna is my idea - Bourak, one of the Turkish guys, wants to go to Prague because he has a girlfriend there but he is 17 and needs an adult to go with so I said I'd go if we could also go to Vienna so we are leaving Sunday morning. Peter from England and Eren, also from Turkey are coming too. Myself, Tatianna and Lisa are designing an Obstacle course or Hinterslauf for the Olympic day but it is quite difficult since some of the residents are in wheel chairs or have limited mobility. We are hanging strips of garbage bags from trees that they have to brush aside to go through and made a slalom with sticks and balloons. I miss everyone back home - I hope everyone is having as great a time as me!!
I have been really busy with work and German lessons for the past two days. Our summer festival is this Saturday, so we have been having 5 hours of work and 3 hours of German lessons per day. Yesterday, Nata's Berliner friends took us to the best CurryWurst restaurant and we tried CurryWurst. We also went to Kreuzberg, which is a park on a hill - sort of similar to Mount Royal. The night before we went to a biergarten of sorts. It was oustide and surrounded by a cement wall or tower that people rock climb on. The flash on my camera doesn't work so I can,t take any pictures at night. I booked a train to Prague and Vienna for next week. I am going with three other people from the workcamp. The train cost 39euros to Prague and Vienna but now we need to find a ticket home. No one cooks anymore. The other night we were just eating cheese and crakers because the food we cook as a big group is usually horrible and no one likes it. We finally got more toilet paper yesterday and it was really exciting
