My nephew embarked a couple of months back on a trip across Europe to spend time on various organic farms. It's in support of an group/organization called WWOOF, World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farming.
His updates are quite entertaining, insightful, and enlightening. I'd be remiss if I didn't share them. (I just wished he'd send some pictures to associate with the emails I'll be posting.) And he's fully aware I'll be posting these. :-) When you get to the "German Country Side", some context noted is concerning his birthplace. My nephew was born in Germany being an Army Brat.
