Ok so, I just had the best day of my life so far. I just met Rammstein!
I met Margot at the venue at 7ish. We were the only ones that only knew English so we kept getting confused because all the directions they were giving us were in German. We kept going back and forth and we almost missed them because Margot wandered off for a few minutes. We finally managed to get to the spot they wanted is to wait at in until it was 8.

Someone just compared Till Lindemann to Christian Grey…
This might look like a savoury plate of spaghetti, but friends, this is not spaghetti. It’s a delectable and distinctly German treat known as Spaghettieis.
Invented by Dario Fontanella in the late 1960s in Mannheim, Germany, Spaghettieis typically consists of vanilla ice cream extruded through a modified potato press to give it the delightfully deceptive appearance of spaghetti noodles. The ice cream is placed over whipped cream and topped with strawberry “spaghetti” sauce and sprinkled with either coconut flakes, white chocolate shavings or grated almonds, each of which work well to give the appearance of grated parmesan cheese.
We had the good fortune to try some ourselves a few years ago while travelling around Germany and happily report that it is nothing short of delicious. Sure enough, wherever you order it, it looks like spaghetti and tastes like a heavenly strawberry sundae.

Did you know that the Beatles also sang two of their songs in German?
