Yesterday was “Verkaufsoffener Sonntag” (Sunday shopping) in Frankfurt am Main. The shops were open from 13:00 on until 19:00. Hubby and I had a Sunday buffet lunch in the city with some friends and then went shoe shopping afterwards – an exception, definitely! (hehehe).
Okay, I know that in other parts of the world, shops are open on Sundays. In the Philippines or US of A for example. Germany, Sunday shopping is quiet a rarity. Some places they even close on Saturday midday. From then on no more shopping. Instead, people rather go to the forests for long walks or go for bike tours or visit Castle ruins. At night people can opt to eat out, since restaurants are open or go to Opera’s or concerts. For me, if I’m not at work, I’ll be at home with hubby cozily watching some old films or downloaded TV sci-fi series… yap, that’s my life, peaceful. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I don’t have friends. Neither is my life boring?? NO! Definitely not. I just prefer my life as it is.
