I am fully integrated especially after attending the German Integration Course. After passing the exam last April 2007 with very good grades, I decided to apply for a German citizenship. Hence, I am a citizen of this country now. I believed it is a good decision to share a bit about the map and some facts about this beautiful country, Germany. Here it is;
