Like, A Real German From Germany.It's funny how most stories in this group are written by people who have never so much as set foot onto German grounds. Now of course I don't mind this at all, it's just an observation I've made. I mean, it's a great thing people are aware and proud of their heritage. And I'm happy to notice there's not much left of the connotations formerly associated with this particular country.
So yeah, anyways, I'm German. I've lived inside the borders of my home country for most of my life. Born in the capital, moved to Hamburg at the age of four, living in the South today.
I doubt you'd notice, though, if you didn't know - I'm hardly a stereotypical member of this ethical group I was born into. People in other countries tend to doubt my Germanity once I tell them I'm a vegetarian and don't even like beer all that much. I also speak English and Spanish fairly well, which confuses people as they can't usually place my accent.
I like Germany though, it's a good place to live. Most of this country's advantages, just like its shortcomings, have made themselves known to me only while I was living somewhere else. I've never been a patriot, and to this day I'm not one, but I did develop a healthy amount of affection for it ba
