I live in Germany, so I am really at the source of politics and culture. You can ask me about entertainment, pop culture, politics of the day, general culture. I am also interested in German history, especially the time after 1945, i.e. the evolution of modern Germany, the division in Western and Eastern Germany, the fall of the Berlin wall. If you're wondering why some things are the way they are in Germany, don't hesitate to ask me, and I will try to give you a helpful answer.
I was born and spent most of my life in Germany. Right now I am living in Northwestern Germany. I am generally interested in politics and culture. Thus, I feel I should be able to help people from other countries understand Germany and German culture a little better.
I studied translation from English and French into German. I've been working as a freelance translator for 5 years now. So, I am able to understand and use the English language.
It is about my home country, and as most people do I love my home country. That doesn't mean I agree to everything that is happening in Germany, but I think this is the way all around the world. I will try and bring German culture closer to people who are interested in it.
I think there are always areas in which you can learn something every day, e.g. history, culture etc. By answering your questions from diverse areas, I hope to learn a little bit more myself during the research.
I think many people either think about WWII or about Lederhosen and beer when they think about Germany. But there is so much more to it. Germany has a very large regional diversity in history, culture, dialects, food and drinks. Did you know for example that Germany produces wine? Did you know that many people in Northern Germany rather drink tea than coffee?
