Berlin through an objective lens #3

It’s the time of the year to get festive. Therefore we had some friends over for a Christmas dinner and some of our favourite Londoners for NYE.

Am I still welcome here?

Originally I didn’t want to publish a post about the Eu Referendum in the UK. I’m sure everybody has already read about the circumstances and the results. The Leave campaign won with a narrow majority. Everybody I know is shocked, devastated and disappointed. My friends are of various cultural backgrounds like Czech, Polish, Australian, Scottish, Irish…

Where, when, what?

The stressful time started: it is application period. Even if you can’t apply for the state unis yet, I had to handle a first rejection. I was applying for a private uni near Dortmund.

“Advent, Advent ein Lichtlein brennt…
