Alex is originally from Nebraska, USA, but is now living in Hamburg. She joins me with a glass of sparkling wine to discuss, among other things, her love for "zu verschenken" culture, how scholarships offer a world of opportunity for coming to and staying in Germany, and how living in a WG has given her an insight into German life that she might not have had otherwise.
She also talks about the German things that fascinate her: the lack of digitization, strange opening hours, and Kirchensteuer (church tax). And I discover that there is something called "Kinderlosenbeitrag", or "childless fee", which she has to pay because she has no children.
