28-29 Juni, 2014

Last weekend, my mom and I have been to Berlin, capital city of Germany. I thought it was going to be just a big city, but I actually was quite wrong. I enjoyed the vibe of the city. The city felt alive and people living here seemed to be really enjoying their lives.
We only had Saturday for shopping as all the stores were closed on Sunday. So we walked 5+ hours around Berlin and went to many shops.

This is the famous KaDeWe and Berlin´s traffic light.

Berlinerdom is very ornate and well preserved.

Lastly, beer from Berlin, Berliner. Sehr lecker!

Mom in Europe

26 Juni 2014

Last weekend, I met up with my mom in Paris. Then the next day, we headed to Barcelona and Madrid. Going back to Paris after a year was a nice feeling because I felt like I knew the city (although I stayed there only for a week last year).

We had spent a very short amount of time in Barcelona.

Then in Mardid, we visited a lot of small stores and restaurants and enjoyed our visit. Jamon in Madrid was an interesting gastronomic experience.

All these 'things' hanging on the ceiling are 'Jamon'. The guy working there said it was a pig's leg. 

We went to Tapas restaurant and enjoyed nibbling on various types of food on baguette.

About my work

12 Juni 2014

In my work, my task is to develop equations and a physical model for pedelecs (E-bikes). Using softwares like Excel and Matlab SIMULINK, I combine equations (equations I learned from physics and mechanical engineering courses) to find out expected power input from the rider, given certain conditions.
It involves a lot of research and learning new things - I have learned a lot about bicycles and their technicalities. Also the books I am using for research purposes are in German, so I sometimes struggle to understand what the book is saying,. But, thanks to google translator, I can mostly understand the texts.

Here is a little bit of what I have been doing:

Visit From a Friend in Paris

29 Mai, 2014

My friend from Paris came to visit me. It was exciting to meet up with a friend in a foreign country. We enjoyed the nice weather and the greens offered by Hannover. Biking around the parks and lakes along with eating great food brought us much fun.

This part of Hannover is called "Altstadt", which literally means "old city". A lot of fun restaurants and pubs are around this neighborhood.

We were taking a break from biking on Maschsee. We were awed by how green the city was and how pretty it was to bike around. My friend from Paris enjoyed her visit a lot since she doesn't get to see much of a big park in Paris.
