randomness from my trip

We ate dinner last night at a vegetarian restaurant (which was kinda nice for me and Joanie). It had a menu translated into ENglish (which is kind of unusual here). I ordered something that was described on the English menu as "dumplings with tofu, vegetables, and seaweed" or something similar. It was called an empenada on the SPanish menu. And then it came, and it wasn't dumplings; it was an empenada.

Yesterday Frederik and Benjamin were conversing in German. I couldn't understand their conversation except for the odd technical term or other word that they spoke in English (ie, "C++", "accessibility," "operator overloading," etc).

Apparently it's not normal in EUrope for a store to quote a price for something without including taxes, as is typical in the US. Someone was talking about leaving the US and wanting to buy a magazine that was listed at $8, and he had $8 left over, and he was surprised, since he didn't have enough cash to pay what he was being charged.
