Hospitality 2003 - 2010
Crossover Events

The hospitality afforded by a host of citizens to foreign travelers would lead to a close friendship between North American and European families. One European possessed near reverent childhood memories of American civilian and military personnel, and his many rides in American tanks and jeeps. While he and his friends would some day marvel over the technologically advanced 1950's American Finned Cars; his father would engineer the 1950's engines for the Mercedes-Benz Type 300, which included the first iteration of the fastest production car of its day. His brother would someday engineer the first all wheel drive car; the Audi Quattro and he himself would rise to the position of a worldwide sales chief for Daimler Mercedes. Over the decades he and his wife would visit America taking in its grandeur and what she has achieved in just 500 years; he often commentating; "Can you imagine". A theme this crossover website attempted to illustrate.

Sentiments...

"I would have to make a list of the people who send their regards"

"They want to know when the Americans are coming back."

"You have represented your country well" (Eastern Europe).

"You are from America, so they love America" (Eastern Europe).

"They were pleased by the respect shown towards the historic and cultural aspects of their country"

The placing of an American Flag lapel pin on the lapel of a Hungarian citizen and the man's genuinely appreciative eyes tearing up.

 A prominent Hungarian businessman would get emotional when he stated; "To think Americans, Germans, Hungarians and Romanians all at one table".

"I was surprised to come across your painstaking preparation off Hungarian Hungarian Goulash and thought that your German friends might like to know about my new book on the famous Hungarian dessert wine...The title is 'Tokajiine - Fame, Fate, Wine... Miles Lambert-Gocs Williamsburg, Virginia".

"Hi ..... I am interested in booking a ride .....Could you please let me know what we need to do to arrange that and what the prices will be...

"Hello, Valerie, hello, Anthony and family...We have received the package .... It is a miraculous recollection of a wonderful holiday with You…The flag which I have sent is a rare relic of a once existing state, that does not exist anymore…
