These workers come from mostly the Eastern European countries and are a season work force here in Germany. They live in these container units much like our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. From what I have observed they seem like a tight unit. Though the work is hard they are happy for it as they have expressed to me on occasion. I for one and very grateful for the work they do and the wonderful color they bring to the daily landscape around my village.
