Bye Cambridge! Hallo Berlin!
My internship at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit of the University of Cambridge is over and I am back in Berlin!
It’s been almost three months living in Cambridge and working at the CBU with Dr. Tim Kietzmann and the time has passed so quickly. Hopefully soon we will start writing a manuscript about the worked I did in Cambridge, which I will continue now from Berlin.
The project was not too different from what I have been doing in Berlin, as it’s a follow up of my main research on data augmentation, but living in Cambridge was indeed quite different than living in Berlin! One is a small British city, the other is a big European capital; one has a scatter of Gothic colleges, the other has an eclectic mix of buildings; one has a fantastic offer of cask ales in its many pubs, the other has a wonderful offer of Spätis in its streets. This could follow endlessly. Just as a metaphor of the difference, see the contrast of the photos I took on my last day in Cambridge and what I first encountered when I walked home from Ostbahnhof in Berlin.
But don’t take me wrong: I love Berlin!
