: Anyhow, I really can recommend going to Oz. Great country, much better than Germany (and probably the US). In Oz, the administration really does something for the people and not only against it (as I am under the sad impression in Germany). The skating facilities are great and there are even more roller skaters per billion inhabitants than in Germany. Only Spain probably has more. ;-)
Well, no trips for me for awile. My rent is now 60% of my income. :-O!! I cant believe how expensive it is to live in a hole in the wall here. So no money, no vacation, bummer, another year. Maybe I'll save up to go up to NY at least one day soon!
