My final weekend in Europe as my project has come to a close. I felt it was poetic to spend my last weekend in Germany as the only other time I had done that was my first weekend in Europe which is now over 10 months ago. The weekend was low key and very cold. Basically spent it taking in the Christmas fesitivals all over Stuttgart and Esslingen, which is a neighboring town only 20 minutes away.
Aside from that, I did run into a bunch of Stuttgart soccer players who were staying in my hotel the weekend they played Bayern Munich. Huge game with lots of excitment in the air. Very fun to see people’s expressions as they run into these players in the hotel. Most of them are in absolute awe. Below are some photos from the weekend of December 12th, 2008:
