As  we enter the winter season, I headed this week down to Chicago's famous Christkindlmarkt - literally "Christmas Market" - to see how the Germans do it.

Christkindlmarkt is based on the world famous Christmas Market in Nuremburg, Germany, and provides a great opportunity for window shopping, chocolate consumption, and moderate insobriety.

Laurence Brown is a British man writing his way through the truly bizarre world of America - a place he sometimes accidentally calls home and a place he still hasn't quite figured out after seven years. Thankfully, his journey is made 12% easier by the fact that his accent makes him sound much smarter than he is. For evidence of this, subscribe to his popular Lost in the Pond web series over on YouTube.


  1. Did you have any of the gingerbread? How about the sausages?

  2. We did have gingerbread as it happens! I don't eat meat, so no sausages for me. However, I did have a quite lovely tofurkey sandwich.

  3. Oh, if you want a great place for vegetarian sandwiches, go to Zenwich, in Elmhurst, IL. There is one in The Loop, but it is only open for lunch, and the quality isn't as good. And it is an excuse to check out the towns in the area.

  4. Cold and reserved.
