Thank You Darmstadt

Dear Darmstadt,

In the past few months, you have been very nice to me, opening new doors for me.

Life is a rollercoaster and, just like that, there are ups and downs. We can't blame the place or anyone for that. When I came to Darmstadt, it was a disaster. It was my first day, I landed in Frankfurt and my friend picked me up from the airport. Its a blessing to have a friend in an unknown place. I remember the day I took my first step in Darmstadt, and it was Luisenplatz where I took my stuff out of an AirLiner bus.

It was that time of COVID-19 in April 2021 when it was a complete lockdown and Luisen Center, a shopping center in the city, was haunted, I didn't see a single person there. My friend assured me that it was unusual these days. Usually, this place was very lively and I would like it once things started to get better. I had no choice but to believe him and take the next tram to my private room. After a month of curfews at night and a lot of restrictions, Darmstadt finally came to life, and I saw what a lovely place it is and how nice the people are here. I like this city now and the vibe of it is unlike any other cities.

It is small city and yet you can have all the amenities here, the city center has all you need. Moreover, I can also get Halal food easily.

Darmstadt has its own history and being a student of science, I love the fact that I am living here and I am a part of a renowned university in the world.
