I'm a bit worried about the food, but I'll be on a base so I'm sure I'll have access to American nutritional comforts. I don't want to give the impression that I'm a xenophobe or anything like that; I'll definitely be doing my fair share of wandering around, in Germany and elsewhere.
As far as language goes, my primary concern is that I get off the plane, have no damn clue where to find my luggage, and can't give directions to a cab driver. I picked up Arabic this last year (as much as anyone can) so I still feel pretty absorbant.
My buddy got his ass kicked in Germany this year for hitting on a girl in a bar. I'll admit he runs his mouth, but I've heard that American boys are often given this sort of treatment just because we're popular with German girls. Any truth to this?
Oh, and more about the beer, please.
