However I'm definitely NOT lord Hawhaw.
"Es geht gut" or somesuch - that's about the extent of my german. But the people here seem good, quick to learn, friendly and as helpful as could be.
It's nice to be appreciated.
And it's completely embarrassing that they speak very useable English, while my German would probably get me ostritch feathers braised in sump oil if I tried to order my own food.
See you all soon
