In 1986, when I was ten years old, my dad taught for a semester at a seminary in rural West Germany. It was an opportunity for me and my brother to learn of his home country, where our grandparents still lived, and to explore beautiful countryside, ancient history, and a new culture. It was a time filled with challenges, but also with curiosity and wonder. Welcome to a chronicle of that wonder.
