Impressions from Carnival in Cologne

Impressions from Carnival in Cologne

Yesterday was a big day in Germany for all those who love Carnival. I finally fulfilled my promise to see Cologne Carnival while in Maastricht. It was big, loud and funny - even though I was a little bit disappointed about the lack of political criticism in the Cologne trail. The cars were more political in a village in the north of Cologne.

A day in Como

A day in Como

Bored in Milan, I decided to spend the day in Como, the city giving the name to the Como lake. Have a look to see how it was! In Mailand war es mir am Samstag zu langweilig, also bin ich in die Stadt Como gefahren, die dem Comer See seinen Namen gibt.

Milan in November – what is Italy’s comparative advantage in the winter?

In my development economics class, we’re just discussing the concept of comparative advantage (did that in Maastricht last year, but so be it). The idea of comparative advantage is pretty easy: Countries should specialize in a business sector in which they are best. Italy is very good in sun, temperature and beach. So in the summer they attract t

Kulturelle Differenzen - ein Beispiel

Deutsch Wir leben das Erasmusleben aus und waren gestern abend natürlich wieder in Mailand unterwegs. Zuerst ging es in eine Aperitivo-Bar. Für ein Getränk zum Preis von sechs Euro konnten wir uns nach Belieben am Buffet bedienen. Diese Art von Abendessen ist hier in Mailand durchaus geläufig und es gibt viele Aperitivo-Bars in der ganzen Stadt

A day in Torino

We took another city trip - this time we went to Torino, 180 km away from Milan and almost in France already...
Via Padova in Milano - The place where the riots happened

Via Padova in Milano - The place where the riots happened

In the middle of February, violent riots of immigrants turned Via Padova in Milano into a place of crime and repression. Now the street is peaceful again - but the police is still patrolling. Correction: In the video it is claimed that a police officer killed an immigrant. This is not true, it was a South-American person.

Back in the Netherlands

Being back in the Netherlands has something reassuring to it. The friendliness of people in the shops or on the street is striking from the first moment. It's so comfortable to pull out your EC card and to utter the magic words pinnen alsubelieft even for amounts lower than two Euros. As no Italian bank would give me a bank account for a mere five

Travelling home...

It's somehow very funny. The Copenhagen Conference just finished with a shameful compromise on global warming - and at the same time, the US and the entire European Union are going down in snowstorms. In the Channel tunnel, every traffic broke down and a friend of mine who already left Milan had incredible lay over times in Charles de Gaulle on Thu

Die USA schränken internationalen Schüleraustausch ein

Da ich am Europatag nicht die USA zum Hauptthema in meinem politischen Blog machen will, muss das Thema eben temporär auf meinen Reiseblog wandern. Die USA schränken den internationalen Schüleraustausch in ihren High Schools ein. Dazu hier eine Pressemitteilung von schueleraustausch.de. (Berlin, 08. Mai 2010) Ein Schuljahr im Ausland zu verbring
