Black forest Cuckcoo!

So I think we last left a message in Koln. We stayed with a great host, Inga , who took us out for a traditional german beer and to chat about stories of traveling. Koln is a really cool city, not very touristy. We climbed the giant tower up the cathedral... both getting quite hot on the way up,...

Back in Germany

Well, I had no problems getting back in. I flew into Basel, took a bus back to Freiburg, killed some time with Krystal, picked up my luggage, etc. I still have to kill about 6 hours in the Freiburg station, though, to catch the midnight train up to Koblenz (where it will arrive at about 5 in the...

Leaving Freiburg

Well guys, I'm finally out of here. I got my paper, presentation, internship and packing all finished, so all that's left to do is hop on a plane and leave. My appointment with the Hausmeister was today at about twelve (I didn't sleep at all last night for packing) and I dropped some stuff with...

Model EU

We've had for the past three days our Model EU Summit. Each of us is either a head of state or a foreign minister of a member-state of the EU. I was the foreign minister for Cyprus. The foreign ministers and the heads of state each had their own conference room, and were given their own...

Islamic Center

We had a trip today for my course called Migration, Ethnic Minorities, and Multiculturalism to the Islamic Center of Freiburg today. It was actually really cool. Our guide is finishing up his studies at Universit├Ąt Freiburg and is half German, half Yemen, I think. He took us downstairs into...

SDS, RAF, Kommune 1

Okay, so there are a grand total of 6 people in the advanced German class. 3 of us have taken the habit of writing absolutely ridiculous essays. Our German professor is ridiculously nice, but we can't figure her out entirely - politically, that is. Our entire class is composed of grammar...

Thanksgiving

Um, all I know is that Thanksgiving is not meant to be served in courses. Our program was nice enough to reserve an entire restaurant so that all 60 of us students, plus all of the professors and staff workers, could have a Thanksgiving meal. It was absolutely delicious, but the proportioning...

Ahead to the Sea

I went with Mat. to a concert at this really cool little pub in Freiburg. The band is called Ahead to the Sea and it's a band from Freiburg. It was their last concert because one of the members is pregnant and going on leave. Of sorts. If there's an official maternity leave from being in a...

Wahlnacht

Okay, we have to set some statements for context first: 1) Europeans love Obama. It's practically a love affair. 2) A lot of Germans have this habit of going on, and on, and on, and on. They'll tell a ten minute story to preface a really simple question for you. Or when they answer a...

Ugh

I haven't slept more than 4 hours a night for the past week, which sucks for me, and just finished a very stressful load of schoolwork only to have to deal with another one. It's Halloween night, and no one who told me they were going to try to do something with me/let me know what they were...
