Ok, so I went to Hamburg without knowing I was going to Germany, the day before!
I don't know if I was unlucky, but at 7am, I try to called home in Montréal, with a public phone. All the people that worked for the company didn't speak english or french. Only deutsh. I suggest you larn to speak a little before you go. Don't do what I did. I only knew how to say Danke, or so.... argh!
