First Images from Germany

No need to write much: these pictures pretty much sum up why I'm going to like it here (Jeanine is going to, also, but for perhaps more pragmatic reasons like the quality of the virtual reality, etc.). We're at the Guest Haus at the Max Plank Institute for now, until we move into our apartment in ten days or so, but we already have a German bank account and even know where to get good Indian food (thanks Betty for guiding us through our first few days in Tubingen).

In the interest of sparing you cliches I do NOT include a picture of any German beer (yet).

90 Euro cents for an espresso 14 steps from our room:

Biathlon was on 2 of 9 channels today: 

The view from our room at the Max Plank, very European Institute-like:


  1. I want cliche pictures of large steins of beer! You're in for a treat when it comes to sports that are not Football, Basketball, Hockey or Baseball.

  2. When are you going to buy your first pair of lederhosen? How far to the closet ski track or downhill? Glad you are having a great time. We finally broke the inversion here!
