Tomorrow I will say a few things interesting things about Germany, for more than half the cruise is over their territory, and provide some details about the Main-Danube Canal, which linked the two rivers only in 1992. Interestingly enough, both Charlemagne and King Ludwig I were the first to do something about the latter. Here is an interesting tidbit, for example, about Germany.
- In the USA we separate church and state, mostly.
- In Germany, you will pay 8-9% of your income tax to the church of your choice.
- However, if you can prove you're agnostic, you keep that 8-9% for yourself. Wonder why there so many agnostics in Germany?
