Erik Northrop :: Blog :: Week 8 - Darmstadt, Germany

July 13, 2013

This was my first week back in Germany after returning from Turkey. This week the heat is back in Darmstadt. And not the basketball team either, this is the unescapable heat. I might have mentioned in a previous post that its typical to find businesses, hotels, and residences without AC here. My hotel and the university i have a desk at are both on that list so its been quite misserable. 

As a result, I have to pick the most comfortable location...the university. All week ive had 10+ hour days at my desk just becasuse the fan is better than the one in my hotel. But I worry not fellow PIRE-ers! Tuesday I leave for a conference in the UK and hopefully i can find some comfort there. 

Im not sure about the rest of the PIRE participants this year, but my time is just about over. I spend the rest of the week in the UK then have just 3 days in Germany before returning. For me, I left a lot behind at home and the excitement is building to return to these things ive been without for about 2 months now.

Thanks for reading.
