1 week to spend time with family for Christmas. I don't know hardly German, and what I do know I forgot.

Most people I ran into there last time were very helpful and know a surprising amount of English.

One of my friends spent 3-4months in Germany recently. She loved it!


We had one hell of a wild welcome back party too!

I'd say don't drink the water, but I guess that'* beside the point...enjoy the beer.

BTW, I picked up this morning at Polartech there in Genoa. Would have given you a call, but didn't have any time to hang out, and figured you'd be at work or whatever.

I'm back. Pics coming soon.

No I didn't go to the "The Green Hell" as Germans refer to it, and besides its pretty far from where I was. Also I was too busy with my nieces and nephew causing madness.

Getting there was a pain, coming back was easy...go figure.
