Howdy y'all (or: from Germany via Texas to Zurich)

In my best AA voice:

Hello, my name is Markus, and I am an Auslšnder.

Now that I got that off my chest ... glad I found this forum.

Short bio / intro:

Born in Germany, always done lots of travelling, got engaged to an Austrian girl in 97, went to Texas for a 6-month internship in 99, ended up staying for 8 years because they offered me a permanent job, marrying that Austrian girl, have 2 wonderful kids (boy is 4, girl is 2) with 3 passports each, and ended up moving to Zurich because of a new challenge (read: job) in May 07.

Now living in Gemeinde Maur, working near the Paradeplatz, missing Texas a bit, enjoying Switzerland a lot.

So greetings, looking forward to learning and contributing and being the usual general nuisance on this forum that I've been on others in the past.

Welcome to the forum. You're post made me wonder what it is that a German could miss about Texas?
