Saarbrücken is a pretty city, a lovely place to seek cool refuge from the sweltering sun and treelessness of denser and more tropical cities. It reminded me of Ithaca, featuring an expansive university nestled in hills and trees. The weather was pleasant. I took many photos.
|Local church, directly out my window.|
|The streetcar's modernity nestled against the historical buildings.|
|This is art. Or a sundial? Or a postmodern playground.|
|Gothic frontage, part 1.|
|Gothic frontage, part 2.|
|I'm pretty sure this was just an empty room with abandoned freestanding plumbing features.|
|The paint flakes, mirrored windows to the next laboratories, and floor tiles was very cool. Unintentional art re: decay and order.|
|If this were a 1st-person video game, I would momentarily receive a parcour training session across these glassed roofs.|
The weather was great, the university was nice, my talk went well, the research was interesting, the scenery was nice, and my ear was delighted to try to decipher German.
This post's theme word is esthesia, "the capacity for sensation." Travel titillates my esthesia.
