Ask yourself why they often look like that. I don`t find it offensive because I know it`s manga,however many people haven`t a clue as to what manga is and it`s easy to see why that could be deemed…

I would, currently here in Germany, not accept a cheque either unless: - it was from a person or company I knew, - it was free to deposit - and I didn't have to send on any money to anywhere…

If you haven't watch it I recommend you La Piel que Habito (The Skin I live in). It is not traditional Almodovar, but it is brutal. Of course Antonio Banderas is the main character.

Same here, jeba. That’s the main reason beaches have been opened up earlier than planned ( though not for organised groups ) and why gastronomy services can open from Monday instead of from 1st June.

Just google "hobbywerkstatt". There are plenty of them in Munich. They charge for the lift, though you don't need it for a motorbike so they might charge you smaller fee. Also they have a lot of…

I think the safest way to do this would be to employ you on a temporary contract through an international payroll company until you've moved to Germany. Otherwise, you may have problems with your…

A verbal contract is not a problem in that case in the way that it's known he is a tenant, he lives there and I assume he can prove he's paying rent. It's going to be a problem though if you disagree…
