We decided to start this blog to address topics ranging from health and dieting to world events, all in a cross-cultural spirit. Isaak is a psychology student from Germany; Sebastian, from America. In retrospect, our two cultures went from blowing holes in each other’s back-ends in World War II, to running internet forums together (like this) and finding mutual satisfaction in those wonderful German beer-brews. We may not agree on every topic we write about, but we will argue for our opinions when they do diverge and this will highlight the differences and similarities between our two value systems. By hosting forums like this, we hope to build metaphorical “bridges” that bring different world views together. Join us on our journey.
