Dear friends at the Department of Germanics at UW,
To all of you a very happy, productive and peaceful new year! Back at my desk in Berlin I feel the benefits of the great input and the happy days in Seattle. By hosting me you gave me the opportunity to experience life as a phd-student in the US. I am grateful for your openness and hospitality. And I hope to keep in touch and to see you all again sometime.
With best wishes,
