And the cars here are crazy...

Almost everything is a freaking hatchback, diesel, and standard....or at least the last 2. I've even seen 5-series BMWs in diesel. There are crazy cars from Peugeot and Citroen that make Smart cars (and my Sunbird) look like behemoths. Really they are little more than a 4 wheel enclosed motorcycle...or maybe a big go-kart.

And...today whilst wandering aimlessly, I saw a euro-spec SSEi, 92 I think it was. Only saw it for a moment so no pic unfortunately. It was neat.

Anyways, I will post pics of weird and cool cars at some point, just got here yesterday.

Going to school, I'll be here for 6 months. After that, there is the possibility of doing an internship with a major German company (ie Daimler-Benz, BMW, Bosch, Siemans, BASF, etc). But we'll see how that pans out, I might miss Canada too much at that point, lol.

That is definitely one place that I want to go!
I was going to go there as a class trip last summer with my German class, but I couldn't afford the $2500 price tag.
Yea definitely take lots of pics!

I need to go to Germany, badly. I do, afterall, know Deutsch. Just haven't been able to use it in Germany...

Make a slideshow, and put 99 Luftballons behind it.

I'm close to Stuttgart, in a city 40km south called Reutlingen, studying at the School of International Business. City is about 110,000 people...and is different than any North American city I've ever encountered, in a good way IMO.

I love it thus far, such an amazing place. I would love to live here some day, we'll see what'* in the cards. Although, I've quickly learned my German is nowhere near as good as I previously thought.

I'll make sure to keep this updated with pictures/stories/random observations.

How about Euro VW cars for cheap. Hardly anyone drives a car that is any older than 5-8 years or so...old ones have gotta be cheap.

Any plans to goto the Nürburgring?
I'm planning to go over this summer for the Nürburgring GrandPrix, stay a week and run the Nordschleife in my friends BMW and/or Porsche.
