Man in Germany
Wie geht´s Readers! Hope all
is glad and glorious for those of you not as lucky as I to be out
here in the field. Germany is treating me well - I recently put my college
degree to good use and got a job as a checkout boy at the local army
PX. I believe the the sky is the limit for me here!
The summers are beautiful in the
Franconian region of Bavaria in the Fatherland, aka Germany. I've
spent the better part of July traipsing around the area, eating
various kinds of wurst, sipping dunkel beer and, I have to admit,
doing a fair bit of yodeling. Some highlights of the trip, in
Germany, have been the multiple beer gardens and the BMW Museum in
Munich, the newly opened Nazi Museum in Nuremburg, the medieval
towns of Rothenburg and Dinkelsbuhl and, of course, any German
dancing at a nightclub that I can fit in to my schedule. I also had
the opportunity to visit Jeff Chazire's estranged wife in Stroebel,
Austria. Stroebel is located in the Lake District and is one of the
most beautiful places I have ever seen. Besides the spectacular
scenery we were treated to some delicious Austrian fare. Let me sum
things up by saying that the Germans might be the most anal group of
Europeans that I have encountered thus far, but Germany and Austria
are by far the most picturesque countries.
Plus there are no Moroccans (read previous issue)!
