Almost five years ago, I first went to Gummersbach-Cologne. I attended the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) seminar, "Civil Society and Local Government" held at the Theodor Heuss Akademie (THA) in Gummersbach, Germany, October 26-November 2, 2008.
Another photo on a clear, non-misty day.
The tall building on the right is the dormitory for seminar participants.
Gummersbach is a small city and THA is on a hill. We have to walk down a hill to go to the city proper.
View of the city from my room. I think I was on the 4th floor of the dormitory.
A house not far from THA. Cool and nice.
My yellow sweatshirt blended with the yellowish leaves about to fall in a few weeks.
Our group photo, with my batchmates from different countries around the world, plus THA officers, seminar facilitators, translators, admin staff.
I miss Gummersbach. I wish to go back there again someday. But if I cannot, then the fresh memories and photos will suffice.
