Student Post: Emmert

A note by Mitchell Emmert, AmbEx student from Corban College

Germany is the size of Montana, yet it still has about 80 million people and it seems like they do a remarkable job of balancing out forest, town, and occasional big city. The countryside looks a lot like the Willamette Valley, actually. We ended up in Munich and it felt surprisingly normal to be staring at enormous old buildings.

Munich has at very least 15 individual clock towers, many with a face on each side, some with two towers out of the same building with faces on each side, which makes for a good 7 or 8 minutes of chimes. No one in Munich ever has an excuse to be late.
