I was doing my Deutsch homework this evening when our doorbell rang. It was two Swiss Frauen graduate students doing a survey of people’s usage of rooftops in St. Gallen. They spoke German at first but when I told them, "Ich spreche nicht so gut Deutsch" they immediately switched to English. Maybe I’m crazy but I invited them up to our roof. After all, this is safe Switzerland and without the liability lawsuits we worry about in the US. I told them we use our roof occasionally to enjoy our warbling blackbird who sings whenever the sun shines. After a brief friendly chat they went on their way. To hear the sound we enjoy go to http://www.vogelwarte.ch/home.php?&cap=voegel&ArtId=4240&lang=d
and click on the stimme button. K Q:-)
