The German quality

After having lived in Frankfurt for more than 10 years, I do strongly believe that most Germans tend to be perfectionists! They like to analyse things from all angles… Thus, German goods and services are excellent, however, a bit expensive and not so modern.

“Well-functioning” German social system

I am sitting at my table and don’t know where to begin. It is very difficult to describe my current feelings. To be honest, my soul is really overfilled with negative emotions and my head – with depressing thoughts. All because I became very disappointed with the country I idolized...
