The group of people I'm studying with is so cool, and I'm so glad it is because that's what I was looking forward to most. I live with a norwegian guy (Simba) and a Spanish guy (Samuel), and another Spanish guy's coming tonight. There are 3 Finnish girls, and one American girl. It's a small group, but it's so cool.

The finnish girls reckon it's dark in Scandanavian countries for a month at a time at one part of the year. Crazy! The american girl lives at a college. The spanish guy won't stop talking about spain, and insists I visit because it's so different to any other country in the EU. They're all really friendly people.

Last night we had dinner at a traditional bavarian restaurant, and were served by people wearing lederheusen! Then we had a party at C8, one of hte student residences with other german students.

Today we had a lecture in the morning that was really interesting, on managmeent fashion. lunch was pretty good at the cafeteria, all paid for. This afternoon we visited WOB AG, the biggest and best B2B marketing company in Germany. The CEO spoke for an hour and a half on his company, then we had the same again for questions. I had lots, it was really interesting. I had some intelligent questoins, or at least I think I did :)

Afterwards I shook his hand and got his business card. It'd be great to work there.

Tonight we're free, so we're going to an italian restaurant in the city before getting an early night.I need to catch up after the last party! Having a blast, love it. Tonight the last student is arriving, another spaniard. his flight gets in at midnight, and we'll be up to meet him. Apparently the TV at that time is questionable, a little like late night SBS. I'm thinking we'll have to check it out :P
