What is your connection to Germany, Austria or Switzerland?

My father was German and Swedish. I visited Germany briefly, and I studied the language in college. Love German opera and certain plays. A great culture!

Do you speak any German?

None worth mentioning. When I tried to use my German in Germany, I spoke so poorly and haltingly native Germans immediately switched to English.

What neighborhood or suburb do you live in?

Park Ridge

Do you have ideas for events to attend or places to go?

Oktoberfest in Lake Villa. I'll check the opera schedule. Is the Golden Ox still in business and does the Goethe Institute have events?


Very much miss the Black Forest Restaurant near my neighborhood, but I've enjoyed many other German restaurants through this gorup. Would like to visit Germany again.
