I am taking German classes at Pro-Log in Schonberg and it’s given me a chance to shop at the Turkish supermarkets. The one I visit the most is called Oz-Gida. I love wondering around the aisles and trying to work out what different things are. I enjoy the “foreign” atmosphere, where the gentlemen weighing the vegetables sport thick mustaches and the check out counter women sometimes wear a hijab. And everyone smiles big – I like that, it’s so Middle Eastern! When you check out, you receive plastic bags without having to pay for them. Although I have already become totally Germanized on that front and always bring my own bags.
