A friend of mine who also happened to be staying in Germany contacted me, inviting me to a formal ball in the north east of the country. I said "YES" immediately.. The ball was 2 days away, then I realized.. I have no dress for such an event. After futile attempts of trying to explain a "ball gown" to shop-keepers who only speak German.. my wonderful co-worker Rabea thankfully took me shopping one afternoon. We went to a small boutique specifically for evening dresses. I tried on many dresses and found one that both Rabea and I thought was elegant enough for a ball. On the day of the ball, I took a long train ride to the east, a town called "Chemnitz" which is a small, east German town. People really do not speak English there, I met with my friend Goor - a very polite businessman living between Israel and Germany. He showed me around Chemitz before getting ready for the ball.
