Yesterday was a little odd. I ran into two fellow Durban natives. The first was perhaps the most surprising. I was on a business call with someone who’s name I recognised. But not sure if it was the same person that used to hang out in the school computer room hacking on his Amiga 500. Then I noticed the South African accent and the date of graduation. Indeed it was the right person. Odd how after a good fifteen years, one still bumps into the same people. Hello Simon Davis.
Second Durban meetup was when I had drinks with Tyler and his girlfriend Lisa. They run the Pukka German podcast. Pukka German is a way to learn German with a twist. It’s more about day to day idioms and phrases that are actually used. Think “I am sick” verses “to feel rough as; to
feel hit by a ten tonne truck; to feel worse for
wear; to be under the weather”.
