Solina's Journey to Germany

Current Location

Chemnitz, Germany

I will be spending a year in Chemnitz, Germany as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at an Oberschule (5th through 10th grade). I can't wait to share my journey with you!


Check out what I've been up to in the past week! 


A week before I moved to Chemnitz, violent right-wing protests broke out following the murder of a German man by a group of non-Germans. How have these occurrences affected the city and its residents?

Field Notes

In America, we often are encouraged to recycle, but in many homes, trash still gets placed all in one can. This, however, is not the case in Germany. 


This week was Thanksgiving in the United States. Together with some friends from the States, I celebrated the holiday here in Germany!
