I experienced my first Sunday in Freiburg. It’s very different. In my experiences in Nebraska and New Jersey, Sundays are used to get things done. Church in the morning but afternoons were spent running errands: trips to the grocery, Earl May, Builders’ Warehouse, Target.
In Germany, most stores are closed. Every Saturday feels like there’s a storm coming: “Do we have enough eggs? Bread? We can’t go to the store until Monday.”
The park was overflowing, and we saw so many families and couples on bike rides together. Is every Sunday like Fathers’ Day here?
