Kiel und sofort -1-

Well, I guess this is my 1st post since I left the US for the ASP program here in the northern Germany, more exactly in Kiel. Things have been tremendously crazy, busy busy busy all the time. The classes are very intensive, basically a 1 semester grad course concentrated in fairly the same amount of time spreaded over two weeks of daily lectures. Although very interesting and thought by top scholars in the fields, the program is proving to be a killer in the end. :)) Especially when the exams are approaching:)). Forgot to mention that little thing there. It has been now three weeks since I am here but it feels like a life time.

The city looks beautiful and I can wait also to visit Hamburg with the first occasion we get some days off. A bike is a must unless you want to spend some serious money (2 euros per ticket) or time (the city center is about 30 min walk from the institute for world economy or zbw).
