What's this strange thing in our yard? It's a hummingbird feeder! Some of the cutest animals on this planet drink from it, and the kids spent the first two days in our house glued to the window to watch them... Hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of all living creatures, with a heart rate of about 1,200 beats per minute. Although they are so little, their life span is between three and five years. And, which is even better, they also eat mosquitoes, fruit flies and gnats. In Europe, the Alps prevent the European species from spending their summers in Germany..... In fall hummingbirds leave the Midwest to migrate southward..to Mexico and the Caribbean. Sounds like a very good idea.

The date is drawing closer... We'll be heading to the US in four weeks! Let the adventure begin. I will use this blog to let colleagues and friends know what we are up to. I will try to post one photo every week that shows some cultural differences...
