Success… Lentil soup and skyping with mum and dad

Just been skyping with mum and dad. Video connection was OK but probably causes a delay so probably will video for a bit and then just call. They look good and Flojo sounds like she is living it up at home. Perhaps having a better life than in Canberra (warmer anyway despite the cold weather).

After this week and until August it’s probably going to be difficult to make contact at a regular time but we’ll try.

Cooked the guys Rhonda’s Lentil Soup last night and the verdict was unanimous (Thanks Rhonda!). A good hearty and healthy meal. The quality of the meat is very good and seems to be quite cheap. 

One thing we are getting smashed on in Australia is vitamins. Here you can get some Berocca type vitamins (Magnesium and calcium) for only 59 euro cents. That is ridiculous and I will be living off these when I am on the move throughout July. Someone is making a hell of a lot of money in Australia or Germany on vitamins and minerals.

Heading off into town this afternoon to check out one of the Berlin wall memorials. I really can’t get enough of the history of this city. It seems like everyday you here a new thing.
