- (Almost) Concrete Jungle: Frankfurt, Germany 2 years ago Frankfurt am Main is the largest financial center in continental Europe and the fifth-largest city in Germany.

Jessie's insights and views on the world are not only unique, they also remain relevant to the lives of people living in and out of the United States. I would highly recommend this blog for those already in Germany, people thinking about living in Germany, and for those who have just heard of Germany. Everyone should give it a read!
