I find that the country is far more culturally diverse. Of course there is also a big within Germany cultural difference between Aachen and Munich. Yes I still get to Germany as much as I can for work. I suppose in 1985 coming from the UK I certainly found Aachen lacking in the diversity that I was used to in the UK at the time. This is why I note that this is the major change over the nearly 30 years.

Hi Rosemary, do you still get to travel to Germany often? It would be nice to know what kind of difference(s) you see between, let's say 1985 when you were in Aachen, and now.
