Wenn es Ihnen nix ausmacht, bitte hören Sie mir zu. Meine Damen und Herren, nun kommen wir schnell zum ende unsere Zeit hier in Deutschland stationiert sind, und hoffen das wir Sie in diese hektischen zeit ein kleines bisschen Menchliche (ohne S!) stimmung versetzen konnten.

What a wonderful 4 years here! Beautiful people, food... And beer. Wine too! I came with Ticket to Ride and leave with nearly 150 games and lots of memories. Including, but not limited to, my German gaming group who were always willing to send me the rules in English before our games and their friendship. My FLGS in Kaiserslautern where I spent most of my TDY leftover money. My altstadt walks in every town I visited looking for the perfect pastry and local game store. Driving 140mph on the highway... Cars still passing only on the left... And waiting for the red man to turn green even when no traffic was on the street!

I'll change my flag I proudly flew here in a few hours as I fly back to the States.

Going to miss it here!

Mike

That was exactly my experience, too! The only people that ignored the red man were us "foreigners" (usually the English and us ex-colonials)!

It's not only you, but I do that as well if I'm not in a hurry.

Lucky guy! I've moved several times, and not once has my current group come with me.

Cool cool. Kaiserslautern is an awesome city. Was stationed there at Rhine Ordinance Barracks for 3.5 years. If I knew German I would consider moving back

Hey, I am currently in D.C. (Arlington to be honest). But leaving again tomorrow at the end of a Business trip.

Sounds like you had a great 4 years and I wish for you that those happy memories stay around for a Long time and are partnered with new ones back in your home Country.
