I just looked at my stats and saw that I have several readers coming from Germany. Hello Germany!

For my other readers, here's a few fun facts about Germany:

1.There are over 82 million persons living in Germany. And that, for a land about the size of Montana, U.S.A.(Germany is 357,021 km2, slightly less than Montana). Making it one of the most densely populated countries in the world.

2. Even though there are that many people living in Germany, the Germans have succeeded in keeping almost 1/3 (31%) of the country covered with forests and woodlands. And, as you rarely see buildings on top of the mountains, you have the feeling of being surrounded by green vegetation and of wilderness close by. Which makes Germany one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. (source)

3.Over 150 castles exist in Germany, making it one of the most castle-populated countries in the world. Many are used as hotels, but most are still being habited by the rich.

4.Germany is the birthplace of the Garden gnome. They were first crafted and displayed sometime in the 1800's in Germany and soon spread across Europe and eventually around the world.

5.The Germany highways, commonly called Autobahns, contain no speed limit.

6. Germany has more than 400 officially recognized zoos, which is the most in the world. If you included wildlife parks, aquariums and other natural reserves or parks, you can visit almost 700 registered zoos and gardens. (source)

As for my readers in Germany, I don't speak German, but I'd love to read some comments from you!  :)

Bezüglich meiner Leser in Deutschland spreche ich German nicht, aber ich würde lieben, einige Anmerkungen von Ihnen zu lesen! :)
