Thanks for the impressions, Jason.

Well, you're doing your part. It's a weird, weird time, as you and everyone on here knows. If virtually all the world's governments were not in on it, I would be more tempted to suspect a conspiracy or something. I guess.

My 13-day hospitalisation with viral pneumonia a year ago at the wonderful Uni-Klinik in Aachen (yay expensive "private" insurance with its preferential treatment over the sort-of-socialized version!) has also definitely served to affect my thinking on all of this. The specialists said I would've had it much worse had I not been so "young and fit", at 54. Well, I lost 10 pounds of hard-gained muscle while there. My lungs are still not 100%; will they ever recover? Did I actually have COVID? I should get myself tested for antibodies or whatever.

Anyway, I'm glad to have done what little part I did in helping you with your job there. Hope it's rewarding for you in addition to simply providing a means for you to live there. I'm glad you're enjoying life there so much, that you're so at home you refer to yourself as a Bamberger (implied in your post as "we", if not literally stated, "ich bin ein Bamberger"). I wish I had enjoyed life there *more* diversely than just drinking myself half under the table every single day. 

(Actually, I'm sure not all of the 10 pounds I lost was muscle, but I lost some, and I was pretty lean going in. Nearly as fit as I was when I was in Vegas after leaving Erlangen in 2018, the fittest I've ever been in my life, according to Becki.)
