Why wait for the Christmas Market back home to start this weekend on 12th December when being able to go to Göttingen for it end of November already?
Actually, the Christmas Market was the only remarkable thing in Göttingen, and not even that was very big or so good that one has to recommend going there. The main people at the market were young teenagers for pre-drinking, Göttingen seemed like a city with a lot of kids and students!
Nevertheless, I enjoyed my first Christmas Market, my first Bratwurst, my first Glühwein (mulled wine, a German special drink during Christmas / winter time), …
I also had my first African meat in Göttingent! While looking desperately for a place to have dinner because the market closed half past 8 pm already, we only found a free table at an African restaurant. So there we sat and I had my first Crocodile, Ostrich, Springbok and Zebra meat.
I’m still surprised I ate it since I’m very picky with food in general, and especially when it comes to exotic things. It wasn’t that bad, though! The Zebra meat I liked best, the Springbok was not very tasty and good to bite.
Won’t be something I’ll do again so soon, but a nice and spontaneous “adventure”. 🙂
