A university to die for

posted by Martin Rubli at 15:01

Many Taiwanese universities have small lakes on their campus, which is really nice cause you can go for a relaxing walk during your classes or in your spare time.

And then there's the National Chiao Tung University in Hsinchu where a walk around the lake is more like an obstacle course around dead animals:

   

Theories as to the reason of this animal battle ground include "bored to death by professors" and "university graduate designed aeration system". ;-)

All jokes aside, apart from the lake the university is quite nice. Take a look by visiting my Taiwanese Universities album.


Shopping, working, biking

Maybe one resolution for the (Chinese) New Year should be to blog a little more often.

If you're wondering what I'm up to these days: shopping, cleaning, and working. The former two are mostly related to my new apartment. I have the essentials to live, i.e. a desk, a couch, a decent washing machine, and a heater, but many things are still outstanding. There's carpets, curtains, a TV, a Wii, a decent computer (to replace the horrible horrible Lenovo laptop I'm forced to use), and lots of little household things.

Then there's work which is keeping me quite busy, especially shortly before the Chinese New Year's vacation where as many things as possible need to be wrapped up. Who wants to work in their vacation, after all? Well, I'll be working at least for a few hours. During my trip through Swizerland I will quickly stop by my old university with which Logitech works together. No nostalgic feelings, though.

When I'm not working or shopping, I'm trying to bike a little more often, at least when the weather allows. One such weekend was about three weeks back and there are even a few pictures in my gallery.

I finally have my GPS logger, a Wintec WPL-1000, so keeping track of my bike trips has gotten a lot easier. Check out the route of my last trip.

I'll try to post some snow pictures from Switzerland. ;-)
