Meeting with my East Frisian friend
Helge lives in German city of Greifwald, close to the Polish border, so unfortunately quite far from where I live. He is originally from East Frisia, which the picture confirms - drinking tea èh :) - and so he went to visit his parents and local friends in the Christmas vacation.
This gave us the unique opportunity to get together and hang out a bit! And so we did :)
It was quite nice getting together with him, talking, drinking tea and coffee and walking a bit around in the streets. The whole day went by talking Low Saxon with each other. Him, the East Frisian dialect and me the related Northern Groningen dialect. We had no problem communicating at all, which I think surprised Helge - apparently my Groningen Low Saxon is getting quite good ;)
I surely hope that we will get around to see each other another time, now that I live in the Netherlands.
