Norwegian fjords from the boat (22.02.2009)
The last course I attended for completing the Master´s degree was taking place in
Norway. Once again a totally different country. One weekend I did a one-
Part of the one-
On board (22.02.2009)
On this picutre, I am on deck of the boat -
Frozen Waterfalls (22.02.2009)
Here you can see a frozen waterfall. Behind the ice the water was still running while there was a cover of ice in front. In summer it must be a huge and impressive waterfall.
This is one of the typical small alleys in Basel. Unfortunatly, I don´t have any
picture from my wonderful host family. I had a really great time there -
Lecture in the Zoo in Berlin (10.05.2008)
Here we are having a practical lecture about poisonous animals. What to do when a
snake bites someone or which spiders are dangerous which are not. First we had a
theoretical part in the university and then we went to the zoo to see the animals
in reality -
The course was taking place in Bergen. It is a beatiful small town build into the
mountains with a nice harbour. Reportedly there are around 300 days of rain every
year in Bergen -
The second trip during my advanced studies: this time to Stockholm in Sweden. It
was a course about Malaria -
Glass Obelisk (29.11.2008)
This work of art is placed in the middle of Stockholm. It was created by the artist
Edvon Öhrström and build up in this place in 1972 -
This picture was taken during my first advanced module outside of Germany -
Pictures from Germany and Europe
3 months in Montbélard in France for improving my French. Montbéliard is a nice litte
town around 100 km to the west of Basel. The river „Allan“ flows accross the city.
It is wonderful to go for a walk along the river -
Saint George (16.10.2009)
A wonderful view over the city with its cathedral. We are passing by this place every day on our way to „school“.
Here I am with Kerstin, my colleague, in one of the numerous parks in Montbéliard. I like this one particulary because it has all kind of facilities for chidlren. For example this giant ant, lots of explications about nature and even a real labyrinth.
Rue Mont Bart (16.10.2009)
This is my home for the moment. A large room in the top floor. Our landlady is a nice and friendly lady who spent herself many years in Africa. Maybe she has somewhat adapted to the hospitality in Africa and that`s why she likes it to have students around.
My room (16.10.2009)
This is my room here in France. Very confortable and with a huge french bed. I found some little differences between Germany and France, for example the huge bed, the bowls for taking tea and the great french meals with many courses. But all in all there are not many important differences, I think. There is even LIDL and ALDI around the corner!
überwiegen. Es gibt sogar Aldi und Lidl ganz in der Nähe.

This is our cat, Monsieur Zoom -

Three legged chair (23.04.2008)
This chair with three legs is placed in front of the main entrance of the UN building
in Geneva. It reminds of all the victims of land mines in the world -
This beautiful landscape is the Lake Geneva. Actually, Geneva it is a relatively small town but with an extremely high rate of foreigners living there which is understandable considering all the employees of the international organizations. Everywhere in the town many different languages are spoken at the same time. Unfortunately, it is also a very expensive place to live.
Between my return from Uganda to Germany and the begin of my studies in internationl health I got a job for three months in a small town near to Osterode. Therefore I was able to stay with my mum for this time period. But I needed a car for getting to work (the public transport system here is very poor) and so I ended up buying this Polo. Maybe not the most beautiful car but it was reliable and it gave me some kind of Africa feeling . The only problem was, to sell it again afterwards because only very few people seem to be interested in such cars.
