A Chance to See Beyond Oneself
Guten Tag!

And so my time in Germany comes to an end and a new home awaits me in Austria. When I moved in with the family in Germany, we had agreed that I would stay one month; I have also completed the first level of the German language course I was taking in Lindau (Level A1). I am now going to be staying with family friends who live near Salzburg in Austria to continue studying German and begin my job search. I am incredibly grateful for the family's hospitality in Germany and feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to live with them (see photo).

In this blog entry I would like to share some observations that stood out from my time in Germany. Bear in mind that I only lived in the country for a month and a half, so my observations are limited.
