Math: German 1-10 (and the end of our 1-10 series)

10 07 2010

Germany was our last country in our 1-10 math and culture series, and for a change, we visited Germany for a weekend frühstück (breakfast). According to my own memories of cheap B&Ba, as well as the internet (e.g., here), a traditional German breakfast is midway between what USians would call “continental breakfast” and what we would call “picnic lunch.” Cold cuts, sliced cheese, breads, spreads, and soft-boiled eggs, plus maybe some fruit or muesli. Here was our version this morning:

You can’t tell it by his face, but Floppy was super-excited at this breakfast buffet.

We ate our meal listening to this playlist of Austrian/German music, and between the all of it felt quite continental. There are lots of youtube videos that will teach you to count 1-10 in German. We used these two, which were each nerdily charming in their own ways.
