Oh -- ! Cool!

I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia on the East Cost of Canada. In a little blue wooden house actually. I was born in Germany, Bavaria actually. My parents took me to Canada. I am interested in Architecture and wanted to write and read in German as training. That is when I found by looking for "after the Wende" changes (before and after pictures) of former East German towns (would be a nice thread) the German "Architectura pro Homine" Page. They cover more or less traditional architecture. Later I found the German "Deutsches Architektur Forum."
Also for modern and all. Last but not least, I found Skyscrapercity and got pissed that there are no updates on the English speaking pages. Most Germans like speaking English, both are related and close, but extremely dislike writing it.
As I just being told by Erbse in the Frankfurt thread, (thank you) there is also a German speaking department in SSC. I never go there. No time.

Anyway, I am proud that I can put some icing on peoples lives. (for Erbse: dicke Zuckerglasur)
I try to make it a little bit entertaining. Some people are just here for the pictures. They like that and come back. But also for those who want to learn. Not just my grammar mistakes I notice days later. Turns out: People came forward and told me of investment directions they took based on the galleries. Of course, they did more investigations for their money afterwards. But it started with pictures! That is pretty cool, don`t you think?

Sehr nett! I, too, was born in Bavaria. My parents brought me to the US when I was small - family still in and around Augsburg. Parents have since moved back, first to Bavaria and then Vienna. I've always been fascinated by Germany and its history, which is why I can never get enough of these SSC threads about reconstruction projects slowly but surely restoring what was lost in WWII. Thank you so much for all you post, Eagle. Again, your posts and photos make me feel like I'm there - I can even practically smell the cool humid air as I look at them.
