As I mentioned in my previous post it’s crunch time here at the Freie Universität as students continue to prepare for exams and write their term papers. That doesn’t mean, however, that I haven’t found time for leisure. After all, I’m only here for a few more months, and I can’t spend all of my time on schoolwork. This past weekend I traveled with a few rugby teammates to Hannover, a city about three hours west of Berlin. There, we took part in the Hannover City Cup, a fun-going beach rugby tournament with teams from several North-German cities like Hamburg, Kiel, Lübeck, and of course Berlin. In case you might be wondering how a beach rugby tournament took place in the middle of winter in a city without any beaches, sand was carted into a large sport hall where a small arena of sorts was constructed.
