TU Dortmund

Yes, Dortmund. I just moved in this nice city in the north-west part of Germany a few days ago. I am senior researcher now at TU Dortmund. As I am in a foreign country I was just thinking to write my blog in English. It sounds good to me, so let's do it.

The TU is out of the city and is really a university with its own campus, lots of research institutes and so on. Unfortunately nor in Romania, Hungary and neither in France I haven't seen such a campus. By the way, I live also on the campus or nearby. There are nice little buildings with small apartments in it, where students can live during the academical year. I am renting such a flat myself as well and it is quite a nice neighbourhood. Students doing barbecue, little shops, etc. Cool.

And rabbits. I know right now you are wondering is he crazy? No I am not. The campus has plenty of these little creatures, nobody touch them, so they are just living there and it is funny how they cross the streets in front of the cars. I have seen more than a hundred. Amazing thing.

I am sharing an office with a PhD student and he helped me a lot, you know with these administration issues, like tax card, accounts, etc. He is really a nice guy. I have other colleagues in the group, they are also helping me a lot. Today one them has shown me the down town. Dortmund seems to be not so old as I was thinking, but quite interesting. Several churches, a small part of the city walls and other nice places where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine. And of course the tower (150m high) where you can see the whole area and the surroundings.

There is a mono-rail around the campus. There is no driver it just goes by itself. I am planning to test it soon. Would you like to test it? Just come and we can do it together.
