An Ameican Journey in Brandenburg

My name is Evelyn, and I am an American from California who took an opportunity to live and work in Brandenburg, Germany. This opportunity extended into years of experiences living in, working in, and really getting to know the state of Brandenburg.

At the start of my journey, I had a full cultural immersion into the German language and culture. While working as a traveling chef, I had to pick up the German language on the job. Through this challenging experience, I observed a great deal and learned to listen more than ever.

This ‘An American Journey in Brandenburg’ story shares my experience as a traveling chef and explores observations, cultural differences, and personalities encountered. Each chapter provides a fun and insightful read that continues to the next.

For those who do not have a strong grasp on the German language and culture just yet, I have written the chapters mainly in English with some German worked in for reference and a guide to better understanding.
