So. Ich bin in Deutschland, in Tübingen. Morgens, studie ich in Deutschkurs.
Afternoons I do paperwork. Thus far, anyway.
This morning I checked in with the university and got a bunch of my paperwork. I took this to the health insurance people and showed them my European Health Insurance Card to save me having to pay. This afternoon I took a bunch of paperwork to the Bürgeramt to register for a visa and tell the German government all there is to know about my person.
Tomorrow I shall go to the finance office of the uni and pay my fees. Then I shall take all of my abundance of paperwork to the matriculation office and actually matriculated.
In two weeks I must return to the Bürgeramt. Presumably they shall shortly thereafter issue me a visa?
I really don’t know.
What I do know is this: 80 cents for a bottle of good beer is a happy madness to have discovered. Right now I’m drinking Paulaner Hefe-Weißbier Naturtrüb. It is tasty and cost me 90 cents.
As well, I can get a nice, large, hot lunch for 2.85.
All of this is good, since in a few weeks my manic tour of German libraries begins . . .
This is Matthew Hoskin signing off for now.
