Sundays in Germany

We were out for an afternoon stroll on Sunday when a tourist on one of those For-Hire bicycles stopped us.

Tourist: May I know where the supermarket is? I would like to buy a drink.

Me: It’s Sunday. Supermarkets are shut. You can cycle down the street to the bakery to get a drink instead.

Tourist: Shut? All of them are shut? That’s not good!

I know how the poor guy felt. It must feel like Germany is so backwards, so old-fashion. He must have thought how inconvenient it is to live in this city. 

Before we parted ways, I suppressed the urge in me to tell him how wonderful it is to have Sundays as COMPLETELY errand free days.
