It’s getting unbelievable hot over here in Germany! Every step out the door feels like working out and changing one’s clothes 3 times a day is absolutely necessary (actually, I would like to recommend this to more of the people out there, especially those one snuggling close to me in the jammed subway). What to do, if you still want to get your morning run in? Wake up really early… I am talking about 6 am here, guys. Hey, I am a student, I am allowed to think of 6 am as really early! At least for 1 more year, and I will make sure to enjoy every single minute of it.
Let’s start with what should be better avoided… I cannot help it, but going out for Indian food wasn’t the best idea the boyfriend and I had a few days ago when the first heat wave hit Germany. Truth be told, I just cannot resist if someone offers me to go out for some puri and a side of curry.
Still, the chicken curry with mushrooms, potatoes and yogurt sauce was pretty delicious. I chose spice level 4 (of 6) and it was eatable with a huge glass of Lassi. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t go for Indian if you would like to avoid breaking a heavy sweat during your lunch break.
My recent sushi lunch is cat and heat approved – add a side of greens and you have yourself a nice summer dinner. In case you wonder, I am not wearing “tough cookie” PJs all day long. I change into them as soon as I am back from work or classes. Duh.
