I just moved. Yesterday I cooked my first meal – baked an egg that is – in my new home. I live in the city center of Bremen, a town in the north of Germany. Schnoor they call that – quite old – part of the city because of its narrow streets. I live in a normal house, but just around the corner it looks like a Walt Disney filmset. I wandered around a bit, waiting for Harry Potter to show up.
