5 Aug 2011

Felt slightly ill the past few days, ended up passing out in bed.


Woke up, not really that hungry. General feelings of vertigo over the past few days, coming to a head today when I spent all of half an hour standing in the bathroom wondering if I would be executing a technicolor yawn.


Classes are challenging, though. Something about going to Dresden.

2 Aug 2011

Went to parliament today, got an even better tour (we got to go inside the chambers).

Lent the camera to Stephi (a betreuer) a few times for shots that she wanted to capture.

Got lots of pictures of the folks while we were at the Bundestag.

Uploads to come later.

Back in Deutschland.

This one's a bit long.

Went on a boat with the family, visited lots of places around the Baltic Sea.

Got off the boat a bit lot more exhausted than when I got on. So much for "vacation".

Currently at Berlin Schlachtensee, meeting new people and meeting new jerks.


Making lots of friends here by virtue of knowing how to leverage a BackTrack USB and/or a USB PyBlade. (Dat keyring of multipurpose USBs...)

Social engineering prevails once again.

Somehow other people are finding out that I've got access- I think one of the Russians might have spilled the beans.


I figure if they change the password, it'll only be a day or two before I can get ahold of another password.

Worst case scenario, I'll ask for the password.

Another possibility is sneaking a WLAN AP into the PC-Pool, and having it 99% cloaked. That'd probably be less detectable and more or less "okay".

Still, keeping this under wraps is becoming more and more difficult.

13 Jul 2011

Left the villa.

Missing the entourage, feelsbadman.

Made it to Mannheim, visited Heidelberg today.

Nothing of note except the abject lack of companionship.

10 Jul 2011 + retroactive.

Today's Sunday (technically written on Monday).

Saturday morning, left the house and went to Pottsdam. Saw nothing particularly new- visited the gardens.

Saturday evening, went clubbing. Significantly awesome DJ this time around.

Kinda sad that Nico and Paolo are gone from our room, Paolo as of Sunday and Nico as of Saturday.
Missing the ladies that left, as well.

Getting along well with both the French and Spaniard groups.

Gonna head to a cafe tomorrow- not sure if unterricht is obligatorisch tomorrow.

8 Jul 2011

Took a short test this morning, probably did "okay"- I forgot a few prepositions.

Afternoon program took us to a turkish street market- interesting smells (incense, spices, meats, herbs, and other delicacies).

Evening program took us to a strandbar, but I didn't drink anything- just listened to the folks from Spain and Columbia talk in spanish at a pace rapid enough for me to understand absolutely none of it.

I guess that's what it's like when I speak in texas-drawl english, though.

7 Jul 2011

Got off easy with a mild slap on the wrist.

May be mending things with the irate swiss whale, dunno.

Had a (disappointing) barbecue today, given that I'm spoiled by Rudy's and other southern cooking.

Missed the concert and fireworks, instead went to a bar.
