October 3rd is a German Holiday (National Day of Germany); it celebrates the anniversary of German reunification in 1990. The Day of German Unity is a public holiday and we celebrated this very important day in German history together as a family. We decided to spend it, of course, in Mario's favorite park, but first, we had one of his favorite foods, noodles, at our favorite restaurant Bar Olio. All of our favorites in one day... it really was a celebratory special day! I love living in Germany with my family, and I am happy to celebrate, recognize and teach Mario about German and World History. Mario, however, was simply happy to eat noodles and run, run, run in the sand barefoot! Someday he will realize that he is becoming a global citizen.
