You come from Frederick Maryland which is about 40 kilomters from Baltimore which is by the water. How have you adjusted to Bremerhaven and the water so far?
I have adjusted pretty well. Bremerhaven is a beautiful city. But honestly I have to credit my teammates and the management and the fans here, for my adjustment going so smoothly. Everyone has made me feel so welcomed here the first day I arrived.
