I am finding out how much has changed with this blog. I love your blog — you are so true! Makes me wonder though, North or South,or middle?? It goes against everything the Germans are otherwise about order, systems, efficiency! And this is why the German economy is doing well compared to the rest of Europe…. Frank the frank hat recht! If my efforts in German-only conversation are met with criticism, I like to switch to top-tier English vocabulary with winding and tangential sentence structure.
And in several occassions I saw a lot of very drunken Germans at 3am, buying tickets to get the ubhan home when they could easily just drive without paying ….

Where I am lil, it is normal to attend a dance school from age when you are allowed to go to the club. I do enjoy talking about beer as well.
It takes time to come along with german people. If I know that lll of my friend invited Germans to party I will take a pillow and pajama with me for the next time. But then again they would be home late and that would be unacceptable.
