October 20th, 2008 · Comments Off

I spent a couple hours yesterday wandering through Glienick Park – my favorite park in Potsdam.  I really enjoy the fall season with all the different colors of the trees, the cool crisp mornings, and the smell of change. I took a few pictures with my new camera.  I have so much to learn about […]

Escape from the Krank Haus

September 26th, 2008 · Comments Off

(and now a slight bit of back-blogging) On my way home from Istanbul, I began to feel like something was not quite right with my throat.  By mid-week, I (along with everyone else in Potsdam) was down for the count.  On Wednesday, it felt like nobody on the campus was at work.  I went home […]

New Life in the Wohnung

January 24th, 2008 · Comments Off

A couple weeks ago, Konstanze (friend/co-worker at AWI) brought me a new plant for my Wohnung (apartment). I have been talking about getting one for a while now, but I have resisted as I have never been so good with keeping these things alive. Anyway, I am happy to report that not only is the […]
