Germany is one of the most racist countries that I have ever seen. Due to past experience, my mother's cousin was driving around his taxi in the midst of Berlin. Whenever a passenger would ride, they would start yelling and cursing towards my mom's cousin IMMEDIATELY. I am disappointed to see the lack of hospitality and nature in this country. - PatriciaN

Beautiful country with stunning nature and architecture anywhere you turn plus the food is out of this world. Very clean and polite culture, which is a rare find these days.

I LOVE Germany!

Germany is an amazing site.
They have so many things to do there, and German is an easy language to learn. I only started this year and it is super easy.
