Okay so now I’m getting out of order as this is NOT one of my backlogged posts…oh well. I was too excited to wait.
Today at the music store in Salzburg I found a little stack of Sudoku books. I’m a fan of Sudoku, so I picked it up…and was blown away.
Instead of numbers, it’s played with solfege.
And this is a book I picked up my last day in Vienna. Two friends and I found a bookstore and were drawn to the clearance bins outside. We proceeded to go through the bin of kinderbücher, or children’s books. One of my friends, who is taking German I with me, bought a counting book and two animal books. In the shop we talked to the shopkeeper, a really nice girl who let us practice our German on her, helped teach us our colors, and talked to us in English about languages, Skype, and life.
Anyway, I left with a Winnie-the-Pooh book. In German he’s known as “Winnie Puuh.”
