Things from today:

  • Shakira seems popular on German radio

  • Queuing in Germany is a very different experience to queuing in Britain

  • I found pictures of my colleague Sebastian on the website for his larp group - http://www.baerensteiner.de/

  • I ate spicy chips today!

  • We compared ways to mess around with someone's computer if they leave it unlocked. Voted the best: screencap their desktop, set it as the background, and remove their icons

  • Being in Germany makes me appreciate just how much French I actually know

  • What does bis mean? That word is everywhere.

  • There's a sign on one road saying 'ich will die Supernanny'. I'm guessing the gentleman pictured is not declaring his intention to continue a career in childcare into his grave?

  • I keep wanting to say dankuwel instead of dankeschern

  • While I was in McDonalds, there was a little girl counting as high as she could in English - fifteen, sixteen, seventeen ... um ... eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-eins, twenty-zwei ...

bis is German for 'until'.

e.g. 'bis Morgen' is 'see you tomorrow', literally 'until tomorrow'.

That word is EVERYWHERE. I think I've seen it in shops as well, saying things like bis 20% ...

"bis" can be
- "until"
- "up to" (in your example probably will translate into something like "prices are reduced, reductions from .1% to 20%")
- "to"
- rarely "the second".
