But it goes so well with my blond hair and blue eyes. Besides, I do have ancestry in the German parts of Switzerland. Reminds me of when BMW dumped Rover and the makers of the Bond franchise decided that thenceforth Bond would not drive BMW any more. Sigh......
Quote: Originally Posted by George I think there is awkwardness on both sides, neither wanting to mention the war in each others company. A lot of this 'sensitivity' in Britain is a product of our odious press. Interestingly, here in England they showed a recently made film made about the Red Baron over Christmas, which I enjoyed, even though there was considerable artistic licence partaken of. The film was a German production and garnered some...

Because if so, that view doesn't seem to mitigate anti-German sentiment among today's English in any way... I was in London again...
Quote: Originally Posted by Mr T I have only lived in Germany for a few months but my observations are similar. Although Germans seem to enjoy being comfortable they are definitely not sloppy about it like typical N. American.

From what I saw, young...
^thanks for the tip, will do.
If you're going to take the pictures inside, please at least draw back the curtains and take the pictures with the light coming in from behind the camera. It also helps to set the camera on a table-top or similar and use the timer so at least your shaky hand doesn't add to the lack of focus. I'm sure those suits could look a lot better in better pictures.
Perhaps. I don't know; I haven't been to the US in over a decade. Germans certainly dress less well in general than Italians and French. Is it Stuttgart University your enrolling at? Which campus?
