Last week the first time in my life I saw a bee coming out of his cocon. I actually had to go to an appointment but couldn’t hold myself and watch until he got out(we assume he is male, because they usually get out before the females and are smaller). Here a peek on their “birthplace” in front of our kitchen window:
It has been a busy last couple of months and I missed it to share some pictures / experiences here. I moved to Zurich, I started my bachelor studies about Medicine Informatics in Biel and even was able to go to Ukraine for a short weekend. Despite the stress of preparing for exams every other week, I enjoy studying again a lot. Here some shots from last couple of weeks:

I had to travel to Ukraine to experience “real” snow. In Switzerland the snow had melted away very fast. I was asked by a Swiss company to go and visit a partner and see how they are doing. It was great to meet up with some friends! Sad that I was able to stay there only stay for two nights. 🙁
A picture after riding a night train for six hours, pretty much sleepless, very loud, in a shaking bed. It was only a foretaste of the following night for my ride back to Kyiv…
I might write a separate post about what I actually did in Ukraine. For now I tell you that I was able to see 70’000 sleeping bees 😀
Recently I saw an advertisement in a Swiss traveling magazine (Via from Sbb) about a museum of the life of Albert Einstein. He was born near Frankfurt, Germany and came to Switzerland due studies at Universities. Of course while studying mathematics and, geometry and physics, you hear and often hear about him and his revolutionary, crazy ideas and inventions.
He is for me a great personality because of his creative way of thinking and complex perspective of things with the eye of a physician. He is a guy that thinks out of the box. And think I really like is the story when he proved so wisely to a professor that he cannot deny a higher being like God. There are many other famous quotes that make him to an interesting personality.
🙂 So I called up a friend and together we visited the “Einstein Museum” in the historical museum of Bern yesterday afternoon. And of course we looked a little bit at the beautiful site of this city. The museum is here:
What a pleasure it was to get to know him better, his family and what especially made him so famous. Did you know for example that he is a father of three children? That he fled from a KZ in Germany? That he earned money in his twenties in Zurich giving private math and physics lessons?
Don’t worry, I won’t spoiler you all the interesting information, because you should go by yourself! But I think it is appropriate to note here, that we spent there about two hours until they closed the museum… we could have been there two more! 😀
Revolutionary thinking & acting
What makes me so marvelous about him, is what he made with his genius talent. A little bit funny is that he didn’t follow a strict way of learning or education, in fact he didn’t like school and often would skip classes. But if you think he skipped school to be lazy or enjoy free time or something, you are mistaken! He would take things apart, study their functionality, calculate their math and physics behind it and even build his own thing. When he went to high school with 17 years, he actually was the youngest fellow there and finished with outstanding marks!
