June 5-6: The flight went as well as possible given a short delay caused by rain in Chicago. We arrived in Frankfurt at noon on Sunday and were picked up by the Fulbright for transport to Tuebingen. I had never been to Tuebingen before, but it is a medieval city that escaped World War II in tact. As a result, it still has all of the ancient hallmarks of an ancient city: a marktplatz, Schloss (castle), and a maze of streets. The Neckar river runs through the center of the town. But it is dominated by the university which takes up much of the building stock.
