I'm from Germany, have been living in New York/Brooklyn since 2007 and work in book publishing. My parents are in their 60s and retired - my mom is a mother and housewife, my dad an ophtamologist and artist.
Cathrin's dad stayed, and he was a fine guests. lots of fun to have, and left lots of nice cheese.
Although I didn't get to meet Cathrin or her parents they left the place very clean. Welcome back anytime.
