The Sushi Train

The Sushi Train

Day 12. The last day.

Ok, so this is a little late. I started early as well. That's a key to success, they say: start early and finish late.

Or something like that.

Christmas in Germany is on the 24th and I posted a photo of that earlier. But on the 25th, that was a much bigger dinner. The fairly new tradition in my girlfriends family is to make sushi on the 25th. It's not very German but it is a lot of fun. Even though I had never made sushi before, they asked me if I would like to. Well, all of the hard work, the chopping and preparing was already done, but I got to roll them. I think I did well but they were a little large. Oh well, next time.

The best part though is that the sushi was delivered to the table on a Playmobile train that ran from the kitchen to the dining room via a long and large temporary bridge. This was really cool. The only problem was that most of the "conductors" had had a few drinks and there were a few accidents. Glasses to close to the tracks were knocked over, a too fast train lost it on a curve, a precarious and heavy load of sushi and/or beer shifted with catastrophic results. Catastrophically funny that is.

None of that mattered. The crashes were part of the fun. At one point, I got up to grab a beer from the kitchen. My girlfriend's father was in there and saw what I was going for. Would you like a beer? He asked. Yes, I said. He grabbed one out of the fridge and came back to where I was standing.

But, he said, it will come on the train. I smiled, sat back down at the table and waited for my beer to arrive. By train.

It was all a ridiculously good time that everyone enjoyed. And I haven't even mentioned the helicopter...
