I'm from Texas, but in Germany for now. I guess the postal code is the same as an area in Illinois. Sorry to disappoint, but I'm about 10 hours away from there by air.
I'm looking for someone that shares similar interests and values, has a sense of humor, and a kindness towards others.
One of my favorites activities is to visit new places. I visited Japan last year, D.C. this year, and will be spending time in Germany this Summer. The best part of these trips are experiencing the local culture, seeing the architecture, and trying new foods. Japan put me to new frontiers on exotic cuisine. However with enough saké, even fugu is possible. To quote Ron Burgundy, "Oh well...When in Rome..."
