One of the things that I promised Lennard that I would do while I was visiting him was to show him some photography techniques so today we took the day and went out shooting.  We talked about aperture, shutter speed, as well as how to design a photo.  Certain techniques that help to enhance a photo visually and then we put them into practice.  The day was perfect for a photo lesson too, the sun…

Walked Around the Canal in Papenburg

I knew that I was going to meet Lennard for lunch today so I went a little earlier to check it out and walk along the canal that runs along the centre of the town.  I found a small book store that sold panoramic postcards of Papenburg so I pick up a few before heading to the döner restaurant.  I wasn't exactly sure if there will be any vegetarian options but I didn't need to…

Road Trip to Papenburg!

Originally, I planned to explore the town and possibly go to the lab with Lennard and visit his facilities but in the end I decided to catch up on some sleep.  It wasn't very exciting but I suppose I needed it.  There will be plenty of time to visit the rest of Göttingen when I come back on Sunday.  Today Lennard and I will be taking a three hour road trip up to Papenburg, where…

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…

Revisited the Old Town of Düsseldorf

It was absolutely beautiful, 13°C with the sun shining, and not a cloud in the sky.  I decided to take the rest of the afternoon to go out for a walk back to the old town and take some photos of the Goethe Museum, the Jägerhof, as well as some other things along the Rhine.  I walked by several bakeries and the delicious smell of pretzels enticed me inside.  I ended up just buying two…

What a Lazy Sunday!

After going coming home from the club at around 0330, I thought it would be a good idea to take it easy today.  I didn't really do much except for drink lots of coffee.  I did make lunch and improvised a bit because there was no curry powder for the naan like pancake that I was thinking of making.  So instead I used ground coriander and some chilli powder into the flower.  It tasted alright…

Went Shopping in Düsseldorf

Yesterday, when I got into Düsseldorf, it was so nice to be greeted at the airport by a friend!  Especially when I haven't seen Keith since 2003!  I can't believe how long it has been so of course we spent most of the time just catching up.  Even though it wasn't too late, I just had to go to bed.  I think it was one of the best sleeps I've ever had!  I just completely…
