Our German is here visiting. Making sure we are doing things right. He was are exchange student in 1998. We have had a very close relationship with his family since then. My parents have gone to visit twice and his family has Come back multiple times. His sister stayed with my inlaws as a student a few years later. They are heavily involved with shipping out of the Hamburg port. The second biggest port in Europe. Jost has seen shipments bound for Moline, IL to the John Deere combine plant there.
