Frühstück: Butter or Margarine?

February 1st, 2007

Episode 30 of 156 episodes

I spend last night in a small hotel near Bern. The thing I like most about hotels is: breakfast (das Frühstück). As an athlete I eat good breakfasts and love to have variety.My Frühstück today was a disappointment, however. No fresh cheese or sausage at all, no eggs, only a small cup of coffee and just two kinds of cereals. Guess I will try another hotel next week.Anyway, when I sat there reading the local newspaper and eating my bread another man came in. He stood a moment in the entry, like everybody on his first morning in a new hotel: Trying to find out how things work. Where are the plates, where is the bread, those kind of things. He then went to the table and took a long look at the offered food and went straight to the kitchen and demanded butter (die Butter) instead of the offered margarine (die Margarine).I won’t comment on that.I do have to confess however, that I stole a yoghurt (der Jogurt) for my second breakfast. With that I wish you a nice day,StephanUse this free podcast to learn to speak German. http://german-podcast.blogspot.com
