Merry Christmas and very happy holidays from Mumbai! For about one month in total Nisim and me are backpacking South India. What an interesting, colorful and very diverse country! We started in Trivandrum, took a bus to Cochin, a train to Madurai to see the the huge ancient temple complex, another overnight train to Bangalore (which has at least a few nice corners), a bus to Mysore for the beautiful Palace, the most horrifying bus ride to Hampi where we got stock with the beautiful ancient ruins and amazing landscape for six days and last but not least a sleeper bus up to Mumbai where we celebrated Christmas! Tomorrow morning we are off to Goa for New Years Eve, another scenic train ride!! But see yourself and check out a very very reduced selection of the most breathtaking pictures on my Picasa Web Album! (If you click onto the slideshow you will be redirected to the album)

We will return to Singapore on the 5th of January and I will be back in Germany in the end of January. Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!

i know, i know. I should be hanging out in town, enjoying myself.Unfortunately my graduate school applications take longer than i imagined and I am still in the process of trying to bring to paper what it is I wanna be doing in ten years from now. My imagination is kind of exhausted already..

Other than that the excitement level is quite low. It's monsun season and raining a lot in Singapore. Today lightening stroke the tree right next to me. The big bang still echos in my ears...

My residence now is also available on google maps. Check it out!
