from Berlin with Love

Hi Ghazal,
This short letter comes to you from my visit to Berlin. It”s a bit rainy here, but the city doesn”t lose its charme even if it”s grey. I hope you will find time during the few month of your project to visit Berlin and its cultural wealth.
I hope you have a good time in Schweden and will be back on Wednesday without too much homesickness.

Greetings your Michael

PS: I attach images of two of the world-most-famous archaeologic objects that attract millions of visitors every year to the Berlin museums. My favorite is the Ishtar-gate from Babylon. I saw visitors from Iraq here in the Pergamon-Museum, who bursted into tears when they saw it:

The second is the bust of Nefertiti, the un-unoffical miss-universe since 3000 years.

Dear Mrs F……..

Dear Mrs.F,

please find attached the project outline. Please don”t hesitate to correct, improve, or critizise it whereever you feel is neccessary. Your suggestions are very wellcome and I would like very much if you could find some clearer and more appropriate words to describe the story.
It would be an honour for me if someone enchanting as you are spends some thoughts on this very, very abstract and dry subject.

Yours Michael

Birthday

Hi Dr. R.,

Thank you for looking it up for me. it sounds good. The 20 june is my birthday so I have planned to go back home that weekend. And plus maybe it is better to focus more on the masterproject. I have a german book I will try to learn from that.But I will keep it as an option.

I”d like to thank you again for helping me with the project description, I was worrying about it a bit. I will write it in my own words as good as possible.

You said it will be a bit empty next week. I was thinking of not coming in, in the beginning of the week. When will you be there? I will come on wednesday around 2 o”clock. I will take this opportunity to read up on the litterature and write a good project description.

Thank you.

Take care, see you tomorrow.

speaking KLARTEXT

Hi Ghazal,

I called KLARTEXT about the german beginners course. There is one starting June 20th, twice a week (Thuesday and Thursday, 6p.m. to8.30 p.m.). The course number is A71-1.
You can register online here.

There are still free places.

Bye, Michael

A very polite Cat

Hi Ghazal,

Thank you very much for your e-mail. It was a pleasure to read some words from you. Hope you had a nice day.
I”ll be in the Lab tomorrow only for a few hours, at around lunch I”ll leave to see my parents in Berlin and some friends (where I stay till Wednesday). We talk tomorrow about the best way to organize next week. (Claudia is also away).

I already told the people at KLARTEXT that you want attend the course at the 20th since it is your birthday. They said it is no problem, and in fact they even offered that one can start the course anytime (even now), but this implies that one steps in when the other students are already advanced.
Ghazal, I”m sure that in mid June you have already learned some words or phrases in german just from the people in the Lab, so that missing the first lesson at the school won”t matter.

wish you good night

Michael

PS: please don”t call me Dr.R.
Nobody in the Lab uses these official titles. If you continue with this, I will start to call you Mrs.F (what sounds very nice, I have to admitt).

… a bit angry

Dear Ghazal,

It is always a pleasure to get a massage from you, even though it is a sad one saying that you have to stay at home today. I hope everything is o.k. with you.
When I cought Prof. T. yesterday “red-handed” requesting a project-description from you, I might have appeared a bit angry. In general I always complain if others try to set up a new agenda during a running MSc project. He was perhaps looking for me earlier, but maybe could not find me.
He might have little understanding of privat matters, but I don”t want you to sit the whole weekend and prepare the project description, while your friend is here.
I will write you a single page in short, key-word like form of the project, and maybe you just “decorate” it with your own words. Don”t misunderstand me, Ghazal, I have absolutely no doubts you could write the paper yourself easily, but I”m sure you have other plans for the weekend. So maybe you can use the short outline of the project that I am going to send you.

Take care

Michael

… short notice

Dear R,

Im not coming in tomorrow (thursday) if its okay due to personal matters. Will come and continue lab on friday. I am sorry to inform you with such a short notice. I could not find the form to fill in for the secretary. Do you have it? Think it was important?

Take care

Best regards
Ghazal F

Ride the Bike

Hi Ghazal,
I hope you found a nice bicycle helmet and arrived well in Unterschleissheim. The helmets, I have to admit, are a tribute to the sports industry which makes easy profit from selling them to the fearsome people. And they are a tribute to the insurrance companies, which can refuse to pay you a compensation, in case you are hit by a car and did not wear a helmet. Aestetically, however, they are a disaster. People look like a Alien III monster when they wear a bicycle helmet.
When you were sitting on the bike yesterday, with your open hair and the trenchcoat, you reminded me of a picture I saw on an french retro-poster advertising bikes (see below).

I think we should make a photo of you on the bike, without a helmet.

Have a nice evening, see you tomorrow.

Michael
