Washing, Shopping, Gaming & Homework
Since I'll visit a special event tomorrow which is conveniently located 40 miles outside of Pittsburgh, I had to rent a car. And since my favorite car rental agency is closed on Sunday, I got a car for the whole weekend. What's the first thing you do when you have a car? Obviously you drive all your dirty clothes to the next laundromat to wash them ;). Anyways, that's what I did. Next on the map was a short trip to Waterfront, my favorite shopping mall in Pittsburgh, to be completely honest it's the only shopping mall I've visited so far ;), to do some grocery and other shopping.
Since working all week is a complete downer, I took a couple of hours off from homework to join the CMU Game Club. Today I've played:
- TransAmerica: A quick game combining cooperation and competition to get five cities connected by rail road lines.
- Settlers of Catan (US Edition) with Cities & Knights Extension (German Edition): They were glad to have a native German speaker at the table to explain the text on the special cards ;).
- Tichu: Still a very cool card game, even though we lost clearly this time.
- Durch die Wüste: A German camel territory control game, which isn't too challenging, pretty fast and has pastel-colored camels!

The spaghetti and the olive oil look very familiar :-)
What's the Bush's stuff?
"Bush's Honey Baked Beans" is a generous donation of the previous tenant. I look at them as a compensation for the mess he left behind ;)
