Not to jinx das wetter, but this is the 5th (yes, make the 5th) consecutive day of sunshine in Trier (despite the volcanic ash problem in parts of Europe). I have spent every waking moment outside, be it on the porch, laufe mit meine hunde, or walking around the city, and it has been glorious. My body (ok, really only my face and arms) are normal colored again (no longer transparent from the extended period of no sunshine).
By the way, Alex found out he's going to Poland for work starting late April - anyone want to come keep me company?!
