So I live here in Germany. Lüneburg to be exact. I moved here on April 30, 2001. I barely spoke a word of German when I arrived but I learned the language and have assimilated myself into German society and learned their ways. This includes, but is not limited to, opening windows to air out rooms at all hours of the day, drinking warm beer and giving disapproving looks to those who cross the street before the light is green.
