^ aah but I love German for some reason. I always think Mercedes and BMW. lol Remember Ferdinand Porsche designed the Tiger Tank? I also like German because they prefer to make their own stuff than send it to China for slave labor.
If you look at America you can hardly find anything made in USA anymore. The term German Engineering still stands to this day I would think. We don’t have nice paved roads and sidewalks like Germany, offcourse then where I live is a country of 1.4 million people which is really tiny and we don’t export anything except Oil and Gas.
For example our companies locally lots of them have high concrete walls with barbed wires, its an eye sore because the German guy told me in Germany its not like that because there is no crime so everything is all nice and neat and pretty. Then you can come across shanty towns and stuff, ghettos etc in my country, in Germany these things don’t exist.
The only positive thing I can say is majority of my country has nice houses so quality of life has drastically improved since the 1980’s has lots of development taking place with our new government, but still has lots of parts are just not nice. We build house roofing with galvanize steel, in Germany they use shingle roofing so as it gets old it still looks great. Here houses with old roofing are rusty its an eye sore. And our natural vegetation is really tall and dense, its not like Europe where its cold and hence the forest is all nice with short grass etc. Here its more like a Jungle. lol
new roofing now are zinc and aluminum mixed design though so the don’t rust which is good.
One thing I guess I am thankful for is we have no natural disasters in my part of the Caribbean and life is really simple and cheap, cost of living is a fraction of what it is in first world countries. We pay 50 cents US for a liter of Gas and 25 cents for a liter of Diesel. And we have free tertiary Education all tuition fees are paid for by state even if its a European or American degree via distance learning. Must be a school locally offering the foreign degree, we have one that offers programs from University of London.
