It wasn't a German Hochschule. It was a Department of Defense dependent school. My mom was in the Army and I was an Army brat. I graduated in Nuernberg. It's about an hour S/SE of Wuerzburg and about an hour north of Munich/Muenchen. Yeah, I meant Komodos. I love lizards and those things fascinate me. I'd love to see one in a zoo or something, but I wouldn't want to meet a group of them out in the wild. Did you get to pet or touch or interact with them? They are my favorite member of the great ape family. I have never been to Indonesia, but I have been to the Philippines and Okinawa. I was very little when I was in the PI, but I was stationed on Okinawa back in 2001. Very pretty island, but traffic sucks ass there. It was either 2003 or 2004. I thought it was '04.
