This weekend there was a huge festival in downtown Saarbrucken. Ther was music and live
performances on almost every street, Regional foods stalls peddling Schwenker and Flamchuken (I am
aware that I cannot spell and am working on it). rows of street vendors selling everything from handmade
leather bags to banzai trees, and of course copious amounts of beer.
There were amazing musicians preforming on multiple stages throughout downtown Saarbrucken.
One particularly memorable on involved a drum duel between a metal drummer and a bongo player
On the research side of things I spent this week reviewing literature and learning how to use the
machines that I will need for my research. I got to use the SEM and got a lot of practice in spinning my own
fibers with the electrospinner.
Overall it was a pretty good week I wish this festival would never end.
