    It will be pleasant to be in America yet at the same time experience an overwhelmingly Nordic presence. Many have still kept traditions from the old countries.
    I am from North Dakota, there is a strong influence of germans/scandinavians throughout the midwest, and many are bringing back their cultures and customs of their kin(most still cook and speak their native tongue's).In minnesota in a town called new ulm, about 90 miles southwest of minneapolis,is a very beautiful and preserved German community steeped in tradition and culture.They have a 90ft, statue of Herman the German(arminus), they hold oktoberfest as well as several other german celebrations to keep alive our customs and traditons.My family has been in america for 100 years and most of my family still speak German.

    That's quite amazing. I would have thought that most 2nd,3rd,ect generation German's would have assimiliated to such a degree as not to be able to speak German.

    You are correct. Most people in the mid-west have pride in their Germanic heritage. I used to live in a city called Rockford, Illinois, which is top-dead-center of Illinois and the majority of people there are of Swedish heritage. A lot of the buildings downtown used to have Swedish flags and the Dala horse. Sad to say, that has passed since many immigrants of African, Mexican, and Arabian stock came and started bickering about the "excessive use" of "white pride". Now only few flags and Dala horses can be seen and they are on the houses of those who don't wish to appease the whims of the "minorities".

    Also, I moved to Minnesota last year and was pleased to see the large Scandinavian presence in this state. There's a town called Lindstrom, which is about 1 1/2 hours north of the cities that is a Swedish community. The people there proudly display Swedish flags and even speak the Svensk language.

    Indeed , I have to admit it is not only the name which attracts me, always wanted to see some countryside in the US, although I might need a Colt .45, or else I might get killed by some redneck wackos

    I guess for a short trip through the Bronx you'd rather need a gun.

    People are actually pretty friendly in the Mid West. Save the .45 for the cities.

    Ah well, I won't use a gun anyway, I will club them to death if needed, and totally realy on my cat like reflexes.

    But the brother of my neighbour actually got killed while he was hitch-hikeing, not sure where though.

    I will just care for myself, don't trust anyone, call everyone else loser, and while I am at it, I will make a million as a dish-washer.

    Mmmmm, America, wait me.

    LOL! No, they're harmless really--so long as you treat them with respect and use good ole' common sense.

    Nordgau is right. Save your rounds for the ghettos (not that you'll be going anytime soon. )

    "Anyone of tact and common sense can go as he pleases through the darkest corner of Appalachia without being molested. Tact, however, implies the will and the insight to put yourself truly in the other man's place. Imagine yourself born, bred, circumstanced like him. It implies, also, the courtesy of doing as you would be done by if you were in that fellow's shoes. No arrogance, no condescension, but man to man on a footing of equal manliness."
    --Horace Kephart, "Our Southern Highlanders"
