    Heidelberg, Germany

    June 16, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    I came to Heidelberg for work. I think this is how I will be traveling for a while now. The meeting I attended was held at the EMBL, a research center where I hope some day I'll be able to do microscopy (they have all my dream toys). Heidelberg is accessible from the main intl airport in Frankfurt by train or shuttle. And like most European cities, it's very walking friendly. People here are very nice and everyone speaks English. The city itself is a small one, full of trees and parks, and green. There's a nice river and a castle, and the streets resemble what I would imagine houses in Amsterdam would look like (don't ask me why). I'm here for five days, mostly to learn cool and exciting science. And maybe to have a beer or two.Read more
