Until the end of July, I am staying in Freiburg, southern Germany, for an internship at the "Institut Franco-allemand" (or "Centre Culturel Français").
The city is very charming - I like it a lot. The people speak a cute dialect, something between Swiss German and "Schwäbisch"... they would be mad if they saw that --> NEVER EVER mix up "Schwaben" and "Baden", they're totally different people, believe it or not - this I learnt here ;-)
View on Freiburg
"Biergarten" - could it be more German? ;-)
The part of the city where I live - almost in the middle of the "Schwarzwald" ;-) :
I live with a very nice Spanish-German biologist...
...who sometimes "decorates" my room door while I am away:
Freiburg, "bike town": everyone here owns AT LEAST 1 bike...
Just a "PS" to my favorite Berliner: Renke, I don't know how many "Freiburgs" you know, but the one I am talking about is Freiburg IM BREISGAU... hope you'll never teach Geography ^^
