San Antonio

For my German-speaking readers.

Fuer meine deutschsprachigen Leser: dieses Posting ist einmal ausnahmsweise (fast) nur in Deutsch, da es sich auf einen deutschsprachigen Artikel bezieht, der im Newsletter fuer diesen Monat bei The American Dream erschienen ist, der Organisation, die mir bei der Beschaffung meines Besuchervisums sehr behilflich war, und auch bei meinen leider erfolglosen Versuchen, die Green Card per Lottterie zu bekommen. In der Reihe “Top Cities” findet sich dort unter dem Titel “San Antonio: Alamo City” ein m.E. lesenswerter Artikel ueber die Hauptstadt des Bundesstaates Texas, der Metropole ganz in unserer Naehe und der in meinen Augen lohnenswertesten Stadt in Texas fuer einen Besuch – lohnenswerter als z.B. Houston, Dallas oder Austin.
