Between September 2004 and August 2005 I was in Kenya to study physics at the University of Nairobi for one year. Below you find reports of my experiences in East Africa; some in German, but some also in English. Most are about my travels, as they offer more to write about than every-day life at the uni. Some pictures I took in Kenya, Tanzania und Uganda can be found in the Foto-Galerie. The scientific side is represented by the report on my research project on Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy.
