A Lovely German City

If you ever get to Germany you have to visit Tübingen. It is one of the prettiest cities in all of Europe!

And to think, I almost studied there for my doctorate! You see, during a summer-long trip to Europe in 1978, I visited all of the universities I was possibly interested in. Eventually I settled on two -- Tübingen and Basel. As you know, I ended up at the latter uni. But I had been accepted as a student in Tübingen as well. It was a hard choice! Even while studying in Basel I made trips to Tübingen to take advantage of its excellent theological library. That's the neat thing about living in Europe. Nothing is really "far" away, and no need to have a car to get you there -- public transportation is amazing!
