Finally I found a new apartment in Bielefeld after a very long search!!!!!
Relatively close to my work and the inner city, 60 square meters, kitchen and a nice balcony to the south and a nice green backyard. The rent is not cheap but ok. I have seen a lot of terrible apartments during the last weeks, so I am happy now. I had to live in a hotel since November 1st, so I am glad that I can move out on Sunday. I do not want to think about the final bill, almost a month's salary...
The job is developing better every day, more on this soon! Challenging but also very rewarding, great team, new opportunities, I really enjoy it after the long time of unemployment. I had more time for my blog, but I hope you will understand, that I have new priorities now. I can not post as much as a year ago when I had nothing else to do. When I have my archive back at hand I hope to do one post per week, but don't nail me down on that! Before that I have to do a lot of packing up all my stuff and moving and refurbishing so don't expect a new post before December. I am already thinking of something special, maybe some season's greetings.
The picture is the (in)official seal of the Republik Freies Wendland (Free Republic Wendland), the region where I originally come from. Just to have a pic in this post... Find more about it here
on this fantastic website on the history of Landkreis Lüchow-Dannenberg in the past 100 years. Many thanks to Burghard Kulow for collecting all these wonderful old pictures and stories. I spent most of last weekend searching and finding very interesting information on the history of the area that I grew up in and had to find out that I knew very little about this very beautiful part of Germany. It was rather cut off during the cold war, but now it is in the center of Germany and Europe, but still very beautiful. Things changed a lot since the breakdown of the German border, thank God, although I am not a very religious person.
Thanks for still being faithful, I try to at least keep all the old links working, so you always have a pretty large archive to browse through!
