Pit's Musings and Ramblings from a Big Country
Why I Write This Blog
On the one hand, I started this blog – or rather the German version of it – to keep my friends in Germany up to date with my life and my experiences in the USA, especially southern Texas. And I started to translate the German version into English here in this weblog so that my English friends can more easily read it as well.
But, come to think of it, there is – on the other hand – a further purpose, both for this and the German version, viz. to tell about my personal experiences in and to explain about my adopted country, the United States of America, so as to hopefully provide a better understanding of this beautiful country that much too often is misunderstood and misappreciated, and to eliminate prejudices.
About me: I've been born and raised in Germany and have been living there till 4 years ago, when I moved to the USA, southern Texas, that is, and married there. I'm now a permanent resident of the US, aka a resident alien.
