I do all of the former and a lot of the latter. When not doing the latter,
I've learned they have pretty good bread in Scandinavia generally.

In a year and I half there I kept finding new kinds and all were delicious.
Now I make my own to avoid the mixture of pallid flour, water, and
chemicals so popular in the US. Even non-white bread here has lists of
chemicals in it.

Never heard of something like that here in Germany. What you usually have
is a "Familienstammbuch", that's a book where you collect all important
documents regarding your family (birth certificate, certificate of
marriage...).

Depends on your status. English people living legally in Germany can vote
in European elections (at the same place where the Germans vote), but not
in national elections. For that, you'll need a Germany citizienship - which
did become much easier to obtain some years ago, for most European
nationalities you can legally keep your old passport and nationality and
get a German one, too.

At least in Germany you have to have a medical-insurence that is valid for
Germany, otherwise you won't get a visa. They have short-term insurances
for people visiting up to a few weeks, if you stay longer, you have to get
a normal German health-insurance. If you're employed at a Germany company,
you'll have one anyway, otherwise you have to find a private insurance that
insures you (can be difficult if you are already older and not in perfect
health).

Right.

It's not as bad as you point it. Yes, there was a demonstration by
right-wing Hooligans against Salafists. There was a bit of a quarrel in
which a police car was turned on the side. And drunken yobs trying to get
the police into a fight.
Things like this can happen after a normal Saturday-afternoon
football-games as well.

There were no Salafis who did fight. It's a rather small group in Germany,
a few hundred maybe. Most of the Turkish Muslims here don't like the
Salafists, and at the Hooligan-demonstration the kurds and right-wing turks
did march together with the hooligans.

It's not a thing that effects you in normal everyday life, ordinary people
normally don't get cought up in these things. It's more like a pub-brawl,
those who get involved want to get involved.

Frank

It's possible that the flour you use is from GM grain and has added chemicals
too, including pesticide residues.
