I finally visited Vishnu in Freiburg. We went together to the same high school and now she lives in Germany and studies Medicine. What a small world!!!
I loved Freiburg, I think this is the best 'college-town' I have ever visited. Here are some of the things/facts I enjoyed.
--Freiburg is one of the warmest places in Germany
--it is close to the Black forest, Switzerland and France with lost of picturesque biking/hiking routs
--very bike friendly city
--small city but it felt like it had everything
|These mosaics are everywhere. Some of them could be found in front of stores: like a pretzel in front of a bakery and fish in front of seafood store, and so on. It takes a lot of work to maintain these mosaics and they are constantly being repaired.|
|During my first day we walked around the city and enjoyed the panoramic views from a hilltop.|
|Pretty Vishnu :)|
|These fresh water chanels are everywhere in Freiburg. I think they were my favorite.|
|Next day we went for a relaxing bike ride and guess what I saw more cows.|
|Picnic with scones Vishnu made and Federweisser from the local green market.|
|It was perfect weather the whole time I stayed in Freiburg.|
|Don't you want to live in a neighborhood like this?|
|Last day. In front of the Münster.|
|It is a very small world.|
|I look happy, but I was pretty sick and taking antibiotics the whole time. Vishnu took good care of me.|
I had a great time with Vishnu sharing impressions of both living in Germany and US. We ate Mexican food, made random things like almond/coconut butter and basically talked non stop.
It was a perfect trip, thanks Vishnu!
