    Now that I think of it, it’s your first as a US citizen.

    Something special in that, I think. It’s your country now.

    Thanks for your kind words! My German has improved considerably, given that I’ve been here only five months. I took a much needed six week beginner’s class at the VHS.

    As far as moving here goes, it was a simple decision- The “L” word convinced me. My girlfriend couldn’t obtain a work visa in the States due to the usual red tape. Next logical choice was for me to get over my fears and make the sacrifice for our relationship. Although, I didn’t think of the idea in terms of being good or bad. Just knew I had to do it. And, I’m now even starting to appreciate a lot of things German.

    You should ask my girlfriend for a trick. The “I can’t get a visa” excuse fooled me, but that one doesn’t work on everybody!
