One week in and everything is positive. The culture, the atmosphere is exactly as I imagined it to be, after an entire semester in German class. As many of the summer program alumni suggested, Oriental snack has quickly become a habitual trip for dinner , lunch and sometimes even breakfast. I did not expect such a disparity between east Berlin and west, they couldn’t be more different. If there is one thing I’d love to take back with me to Calvin, it’s the Döner shop; very easy meals to prep, yet greatly satisfying.
