Hassie: Poor but Sexy

The Abbsolute Deutscher

I know what you're thinking. I can't believe they misspelled "tiny" either. As Abbey and I arrive back in Berlin from our Italian excursion, all I want to do is sleep. Unfortunately, that’s not happening due to the exam I have in the morning… to make matters worse (or better depending on your perspective), Kansas […]

Buongiorno Italia

Bella Firenze Sorry for the delay, but we’re going to need to pull it back a couple weeks. For simplicity’s sake, I’ll start this post with the arrival of Abbey Maus, a wonderful friend of mine from our days at GAC. It’s her first time coming to Europe, so I’m expecting her to be crazy […]

Dinner with Diversity

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ; also known in English as the German Agency for International Cooperation) is a classy organization that does a lot of humanitarian work. A friend of mine works there and invited some of us to a documentary-dinner deal they were hosting. Since some ambassadors from a couple southern African […]

März Madness

Throughout Berlin, you will notice one odd addition to parks. Stone ping pong tables. The stone bit serves two purposes as far as I can see. One is that these tables are then resistant to whatever nature can throw at it, and two, even Arnold would struggle to steal something that heavy. Well, I went […]

Too Good to Save Daylight

Taking Flat Gus to see the Soviets (they rescue children; see statue) This week has been filled with a lot more work (and a lot less play) than I’d like. We have to make a poster about a disease and speak for a half hour. My group chose COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Yes, that […]

Back in Berlin

The reason I can't lift my arms up anymore... Over the course of my travels, I wasn’t able to shave. Due to this, I was a bit haggard looking. When I returned to class the first day, I was greeted by one of my classmates asking, “Oh wow. Did you spend your week off in […]

London: Europe’s Little America

Angry Nostrils The first stop once I arrived in England was naturally the grocery store. It really was a candyland of not easily available foods in Germany. For example, I stocked up on bagels, peanut butter, and chocolate chip cookies. We also got some stereotypically British foods such as Yorkshire puddings (not pudding at all; […]

ExSpainentially Bueno

Satisfied post-paella Madrid is gorgeous. Granted that might be simply because it was above freezing, but still, very pretty. I wandered around the city most of the day seeing the sights and such. But one thing that I seemed to constantly notice were pharmacies. They were everywhere. Literally every block you’d see their green cross […]

Geneva: The City of Ice

That behemoth behind us is/was a light pole... Apologies for being a deadbeat-blogger. I only just returned to Berlin after a bit of traveling Europe. I’ll now try to retroactively tell you all about my adventures. We’re harkening back to February 9th when my journey first started. My first destination is Geneva, Switzerland, where I’ll […]

How the Pros Do It

Classes this week were focused on diversity. Our professor’s last name was Matuko, so I’m expecting an Asian guy (although others thought African). Nope, in walks a white guy who looks EXACTLY like Marshall from How I Met Your Mother. Being an absolutely huge fan of the show, I was speechless. It really felt like […]
