Siegen, Germany

As some of you might know, I'm currently doing an internship program at the German Parliament called Internationales Parlaments-Stipendium. As much as it's an awesome program, it is also keeping me crazy busy at all times, which is probably why this page has seen no action pretty much since the start of it. Nevertheless, I've finally found some time and pictures to start the mission of recording this 5-month experience of this blog, starting with my Wahlkreisreise.

Namely, a few weeks ago, I had the chance to visit my boss' electoral district. As the state of North Rhine-Westphalia has largely remained an unexplored part of Germany for me, it was a good coincidence that this trip took me to Siegen. Proper to NRW, Siegen is also big on industry, but still has a beautiful little old town area, where I took these pictures. I had no idea that the architecture in that region is so much different from what I'm used to in the south! I also loved the kind of a nordic vibe that the grey-white buildings had.
