Kids' backpacks in Germany are chunky, boxy affairs. After seeing an ergonomic bag-carrying display at the Hygiene Museum in Dresden, I can understand why. They keep the weight at the top of the shoulders. This is what they look like (with variations of colors and patterns for the enjoyment of the child).
The purpose of this blog is to handle all the interesting comparisons I've made between American and German culture as I've been living in Germany. Expatriate life is fascinating. I love, love, love, love, love Germany, German, and Germans!
If you have a question about Germany that I haven't posted about, leave a comment with your website or email address and I'll contact you ASAP.
