Kulturschock - things that make my sister laugh

Here are some pictures I've been collecting...things that made Elisabeth laugh or turn and take a double look, or make comments. 

1. You can buy a bundle of "Suppengrün" to make soup stock. She was like, "What? I don't know anyone in the States who makes soup stock!" They do make it easier with this little bundle.
2. You can buy animal parts that wouldn't be sold in American stores. Like chicken livers, hearts, lungs, stomachs. And turkey hearts, stomachs, etc...
3. Funny German Christmas decoration.
4. Bakery display: a gingerbread house made to look like cheese, with a mouse butt poking out of it. (hard to see in the picture)
5. Drinking in public. You can carry an open beer around in the streets here. Elisabeth enjoyed this tonight on the way to the Weihnachtsmarkt.
6. Berlin, du bist so wunderbar. (enough said)
7. Baby Hitler. And next to it, a poster, "Ich mache Quatsch"
