After nearly 48 hours of travelling, I´ve arrived in Vienna where I´m spending the night before heading to Graz for orientation tomorrow. I had initially planned to blog from the sky, but was disappointed to find out that Jet Airlines does not offer to WiFi to its superbudgeteconomyclass. Instead I had to enjoy the many Bush-era reruns available on my Jet Airlines JetScreen™. Expecting the internet and not getting it, however, made me feel a little spoiled and it reminded me of this clip from Louis CK on Conan.
Today´s German word is der Zeitzonenkater, which is one way to say ¨jet lag,¨ but translates more literally to ¨time zone hangover.¨ To have einen Kater (literally a male cat) means that you´re hungover, as I hear was the case among victorious Brown students this morning.
