SCHADENFREUDE


The headline in today's Berliner Morgenpost was "Winter Chaos: Crisis summit in Senate". They're moaning about the roads, pavements, railways, airports and the incompetent chaos thereof. Sound familiar? Feel a bit pleased about the super efficient Germans not being so super after all? That's Schadenfreude "pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others".

I hope I will be able to make it over and see some of you. Only 1 out of 5 BA flights were cancelled today.

Happy Christmas from Deutschland!

Interesting that they use English 'Winter-Chaos' though

Loved it! I have a huge smile on my face! Dad is now on the telephone trying to get refunds on the tickets to places we never reached. I have just bought a raffle ticket in the village shop and I see the draw was taken LAST Friday. The disease is catching! When will we be allowed to pay on arrival? So looking forward to seeing you again. Do make it..... All love Mum
