ドイツへ【To Germany】

   It has been a week already but I have been to Germany. For some reasons, I have strangely well connected to Germany, writing papers with German scientists, as well as supervised a German exchange student, a few years ago when I was a postdoc scientist. 
   Big cities in Germany are actually very noisy, full of traffic and people however, suburbs are very quiet and beautiful and this is why I like Germany. 
   The reason for this particular visit was to strengthen the connection between Universities. Particularly, I am interested in the collaboration in the area of microbiology so I took my student, who has a lot of skills and knowledge on microbiology. Well, research institutes in Germany are very impressive, in terms of the quality of scientists and the efficiency of their research activities. I am sure it was such a good experience for my student to experience this kind of atmosphere.
