This region of Germany, nestled on the French border, pretty much captures
Germany in a nutshell. There is industrial might in Stuttgart, and the
Germans can pretend they get back to nature by going to the
Schwarzwald, the famed Black Forest. Of course, this is
basically just a few trees, but if you were to say something like
"Don't you guys have a real forest?", they would probably get all uptight.
Instead, look at this as an opportunity
to once more gain points with your wife, by trying to find Hansel and
Gretel's house. This should give you an excellent excuse to travel about
and see lots of small town soccer, with frequent stops at local pubs to
ask for "directions".
Other clubs: Kirchheim, Ditzingen, Kickers Stuttgart,
