Krismis in Africa or Deutschland?
(Editor: Alex Smit-Stachowski is speaking in her column about life as a South African now living in Germany. The South African journalist lives in Krefeld, in North Rhine-Westphalia/ Germany).
I was born to Germans, raised partly in Namibia but mostly in South Africa and nine years ago, I left SA and moved to Germany. Now that Christmas is here – the question is – where is better – in South Africa or in Germany?
