The other stand I found humorous was the house coats for sale. These are not robes but house coats that women sometimes wore in the 50's to clean their house in. I didn't even think these things existed anymore and yet, here were some racks of them. Who in the world is wearing these things? Someone is, otherwise they would not be selling them.
I always find it interesting the way German's do things and I find myself saying, "That's so German!"
They love their open air markets so they can buy their underwear and other household items. (Germany has to be the worst place for open air markets because the weather stinks most of the time) Here are a few, That's so German things I've noticed.
They love to open their windows even when they are having an Arctic freeze. Often I see their comforters and blankets hanging out the window to air out. Today we had a cold front come in and it's pretty cold outside. I wondered if I could find any windows open so I walked outside and both my neighbors had their windows open.
There are so many things that I could say, That's so German but perhaps it's more European than anything. Whatever it is, I like it as it entertains me on a daily basis.
