Germany Through My Lens

At the DAAD1 Young Ambassador2 annual meet in Delhi, India, we had a special session for presenting our photos and videos from around Germany. The night before, I decided I’d do something slightly better than just opening up the photos and tapping the right arrow key as the room stares at the projector screen out of nicety. So I stayed up all night making a video out of photos and clips, and threw in some of my favourite uncommon music. As dawn was breaking, I went to the front desk of our hotel and asked if the swimming pool was open yet. It was plain from my looks that I hadn’t slept. The guy must have thought I was crazy. He said it opens from eight. So I went back and hit the bed. And got up an hour later for our program that day.

Anyway, everyone liked the video. At the end, it was replayed as a way of finishing the meet, so that was great. Ms. Christiane Schlottmann, head of DAAD India, said the music was cool. I had uploaded it to YouTube and today DAAD India uploaded it to their newly opened YouTube channel. So here it is from their channel, and I hope you like it!

My blog: 2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,400 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
