I'm not sure that this is the right place for my post, but I will proceed in sincerity to explore an interest and ask for your insights and suggestions.|
I'm a 76 year old nephrologist, married to a lovely lady (for 27 wonderful years) and we are exploring my lifelong interest in Porsches by driving from Stuttgart to Lindau to Rottach-Egern, Austria, to Rothenburg, Germany. Our trip through Bavaria takes us by Munich, Augsburg and Heilbronn. We would love to meet Germans with similar interests. We are secular Jews. We do not speak German. My wife is a retired director of an assisted living facility and a very social person. I'm still an active physician and most interested in extending health care to all of America's residents, best summed up as "Single Payer Health Care," but called by its American detractors, "socialized medicine."
My first area of exploration was to contact nephrologists along the way by mutual organizations, but they are a very busy group and I've had little (well, none!) interest in exploratory e-mails to physicians who don't know me.
My wife and I have found from our experiences on cruises, that much of our enjoyment comes from people we've met and spoken with, often over coffee and pastries or at the dinner table. Hoping that I can replicate this kind of experience, I am posting this note.
