Yes, I know I haven’t written for ages. I already feel really bad about it. So don’t be angry with me, please!!!
From Wednesday to Friday, I went to my first conference/meeting in Heidelberg
My own presentation was on Thursday afternoon, and everything went okay. Well, I was very nervous and simply forgot some entertaining parts I planed to say. However, I think my professor was satisfied with my presentation and I think I put my message across. =)

Anyway it is quite boring at home since my flatmates went already back home to St. Sebastian, Spain. Uhhh, I should make a party ;) Yeah maybe on Saturday.
Well, I guess I should work a little bit more and read some complicated papers about throughput bounds. :(

Tonight, I went for dinner to two colleagues from work. Anna and Carles made Gazpacho (see the photo of Anna and the Gazpacho) and I made a cake and Rouladen. Well, the cake is already tradition, but the Rouladen were new. I was stealing the idea from Annika, a friend who is now in Australia. She reminds me in her blog that these are traditional German food. At the end, we were really full and couldn't move anymore, thus we watched a spanish movie. Unfortunately, the movie was without subtitles, so I would have understand very much. But my colleagues translated all the parts where I had some problems. However, the best thing at this evening was not the delicious food but the old German gramphone which Carles got from his grandfather who lived 20 years in Germany. It is still working!!!! He also has several records with old German songs. It was great to hear the old music.
But now I need to go to bed. Tomorrow I have to work again. :)
Did I already tell you that Bernd is coming? :) I am so happy!!! ;)

I know now why Barcelona is packed. The reason are the mountains. Yes, you read right, here are many big mountains. Between the mountains and the sea there is only a small area, where you can build house etc. . Due to the mountains, Barcelona cannot be easily extended. Hence, the people live really close to each other. Sometimes I find it too close and too full. I am just not used to it, I guess. :)
Well, after the beach, we went out tonight for dinner to a really fancy place. It is called basílico and was very good, but also quite expensive. Ruth and Celeste, my two friends had two friends from Denmark to be visiting. This was the reason we went to a really fancy restaurante.

Next week, Thursday, I am flying to Helsinki to visit Bernd, my boyfriend. I haven't seen him for more than a month. I do really miss him and I am very excited when I am thinking of the trip. Well, the weather will not be as good as in BCN, but it doesn't matter. ;)
Yeah, well what did I do in the last weeks? Hmm, let me think ... not really much, since I was working on my thesis and the German report. Well, there was the birthday party of my flatmate, BCN won the Campions League and this weekend there were some parties as well. But besides them, I was really working. You can believe me! I haven't done any proper sight seeing yet. Thus, I haven't put any new fotos online yet. But this will be changing soon, I hope at least.
Ah, yeah, I nearly forgot. My German package finally arrived, after I tried one week to reschedule the delivery. It was horrible! But now I have it. I also bought a table and a small shelf for my room (we have 2 IKEAs in Barcelona!!). Well, now my room is completly full, but I have anything I need. I am getting used to the small room. Anyway, I spend most of the time in the living room and since my two flatmates are not often at home or sleeping the whole day, I can do whatever I want. ;)
This is all. I think there are no more news at the moment. So hopefully, the next time you will see some pictures again. I will do my best.

There were so many people that you nearly couldn't see the sand at the beach. I tried to meet two friends, but it was not possible. You couldn't connect to a net, since there were too many people with mobile phones. I think they said there were more than 1 Mio. persons.
And you won't believe who I met per accident! My flatmate Inigor with his friends. Here is also a pic from my flatmate:
As you can see, it was quite warm. :) Well, it's Barcelona. For all of you who don't know how this race works: the planes have to fly a certain route which is indicated by big blow-up cones on each side. The planes have to fly as fast as possible between this cones. If they "touch" them, they get a penaltiy of 10 s. So the planes are really fast and quite close to the water, since the cones were swimming on the water close to the beach.
If you want to see more and better pics then go to
There are also the results from the race. The German pilot Klaus didn't win. :( But the Hungarian guy was really good!

it is the light pink one in the back ground :) As you can see, there is a small park with a play ground in front of the house. Please note the fence!!!! I think the function of the fence is to protect the dogs from the children ;) Yes, the dogs are running free in the park, but the children are behind the fence. Crazy Spain! You wanna see the park? okay, here you are:
Did I tell you, that I live opposite of the Barcelona Stadium? No? Well I do!
The first nights, I spent in a Hostel with the name Palau and it was very nice. Quite central and I meet great people there. Unfortunately I didn't have much time for sight seeing since I was looking for a nice flat in BCN. However this was much more complicated as I thought.
Well, now I am living with two guys from St. Sebastian, Ibai and Inigor. They are nice and they also speak english. ;)
My room is quite small and but not cheap!! It has a window and I can see the sky! This is not naturally in Spain. A lot of the rooms I saw where interior, that means you look at a dark, mouldy and depressing duct. :( You do not want to have a room with a window like than, believe me!
You wanna see some pics, okay.
