Going to Göttingen

I left Düsseldorf today for Göttingen to visit a friend of mine from private school that I hadn't seen in over ten years!  Before I left for the train station, I went to the Deustche Post to mail off some post cards but the office was closed!  There was an automated machine outside that sold stamps specifically for postcards which is what I bought.  I just hope that I bought enough postage for each card…

Yoga at the Beach, Life is Wonderful

The weather here on Tenerife is starting to cool down but only in the mornings and at nights.  By cooling down, I mean 18C.  Still when the wind picks up it is enough to put on a long sleeve shirt.  This morning, after breakfast the sun wasn't too hot yet, Lucia, Luigi, and I went down to the closest beach to the hostel and did our morning yoga.  It was definitely a new experience for…
