Reshmi Sarkar Interesting thread Tarun. Well I used to study in Spain and Germany during 2005-2006. I lived in the North of Spain, to be more politically correct I lived in the Basque Country. My 1st semester was spent in Bilbao (of the ugly Guggenheim museum fame) and then lived in San Sebastian (of the picturesque beaches fame) during my internship. In Germany I studied at the Ruhr and lived in Bochum which is close to Dusseldorf.
Spain and Germany were both good experiences for me. Though the Basques/Spaniards were warmer in comparison to the Germans.The Germans were much more organised and methodical in their dealings.
As the Deusto University in Spain, classes used to be one big party with most of my classmates being from Spain and Italy. I still remember that the 1st 10 minutes of our classes everyday was devoted to exchanging abrazos y besos, meaning hugs and kisses!!!
I travelled across Europe when at Germany. Though the sight of 1 foot of snow outside the window every morning and having to trudge through that to reach class was not the most welcome. In a class of 33 students, I had the opportunity to study with people hailing from 18 different nationalities. The very crisp and sing-song danke schoens and bitte schoens still ring in my ears!
I have a lot of fantastic and not-so-fantastic memories I have of my stint in Europe...
