Q+A with Chris
WHERE ARE YOU FROM IN THE USA? I am from Cincinnati, Ohio.
WHERE YOU CURRENTLY ARE BASED? WHAT ARE YOU DOING THERE? I live in a small city in Germany called “Remscheid”. It’s near Cologne/Köln. I am a self-employed English trainer.
WHAT BROUGHT YOU OVERSEAS? I took a short vacation in Germany where I realized that I didn’t know that much about European culture.
