"Homesick" for the sights, smells and sounds of Germany

"Having spent four years living in Germany, I found there was so much I missed upon my return. I had been living in a small town in the Black Forest region while I was teaching on the Canadian Forces Base in Lahr. However, upon my return (and a subsequent move to Stratford), I found the Kitchener Christkindl Market. Somehow, I did not feel quite as "homesick" for the sights, smells and sounds of Germany! It is a wonderful experience, one I look forward to every year." - Pamela Dawes, Stratford
