Wahl ’05

I just got home about an hour ago, and have turned on the television to watch election results.

The results: At least four different parties are claiming victory of some kind–the Left for getting as many votes as they did. The FDP (Yellow) for their best performance ever. The SPD because the CDU/CSU did not do as well as expected. The CDU/CSU because they think they will cobble together enough to form some kind of government.

It’s a little bit crazier than US elections because third (and fourth, and fifth) parties actually play a meaningful role in governing the nation.

For the record, I’ve started uploading photos from my trip. There are a few from the Ireland portion of my trip–a few more of those as well as the rest will follow in coming days.
