Postcard From Berlin
by Clemen Kurek
for the Hinkle Empire
it has been a long time since my last postcard. But I didn't forget The Holabird Advocate. I'm reading the blog nearly every day.I'm trying to get ready for my last written exam which will be on January 24th. So three times per week I'm working at the Jewish Museum and the other days I'm sitting at my desk and read book about German syntax, Morphology. The first part of the written exam will be a parsing and the other part an essay about a special problem in the German morphology. Linguistic is so much difficulter to learn then history. How I loved to learn for the history exam. I didn't heard anything about the results of my final paper yet. They sent me a certificate for the written and oral exam. I've got an A! Let's hope that this will be a good basis for the other exams and the final paper. In retrospect, what are the other highlights of 2007?The summer in Berlin was not really a summer, except the weekend, when six really adorable Americans were visiting Berlin. The following picture shows, how they enjoyed to sit down at the train station "Kochstrasse" after ambassador Clemens walked with them for HOURS! What will 2008 bring? At first: The end of my time at the university. And than maybe a job or, which would be so much nicer, continuing my history studies in the States (PhD). But now it's time for Christmas! Hopefully, White Christmas, but at the moment it looks like "green" Christmas, because the temperatures are between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius at the moment. Not really freezing, is it?
All the best from Berlin,

Glad to have you back and running. enjoy readying about goings on in central South Dakota, Mitchell, and just the Midwest in general since I left the area in 1974 for sunny California. However, you should check your lead-in paragraph -- seems you are TURING rumors (instead of TURNING rumors) - can't take too much to make it correctly spelled. Anyway, Merry Christmas to all - just can't imagine taking Christ out of Christmas!!
(We've since fixed the problem. Good eyes! You should be our editor)
