Packing up and saying good bye to Burgerhaus-Salmeyer.
I will miss Franz’ overpriced breakfasts. (The Institute paid for Mr. Big Food’s, not mine. I went up to Franz’ office to pay. A cool 124e for nine breakfasts. That’s like almost $140 in real money.) Best eggs ever. Croissants were flakey good. The apricot infused honey was worth every penny. And that little cheese roll thing… . I will miss that.
Oh. And Franz always put a little plate of two slices of “cake” on the table. It was understood that we would take the plate back to the apartment and have cake later. Jelly roll. Kutchen.
I will miss the butter.
And the nice fellow at the Spar who helped me sort through my change to minimize excess change. Today he spotted me a euro penny. I said “Danke.”
Mr. Big Food and I just agreed that we are ready to be home.
So 24 hours of hell await us. Welcome home to Newark.
Oh Geeze! I have to go cancel ESPN Player before it’s too late. TTYL.
