It’s strange. During my days abroad in Germany I got to really know this particular landmark known as the Wasserturm or the Water tower in English. It actually looks really nice in the surprisingly hot German summer. Everyday I passed by it on my way to class. In the beginning I found this building quite intriguing because it’s unlike anything we have in my hometown back in the states. As time went on, I just kind of forgot about it and took it for granted (since I was a resident, I naturally was used to seeing it on a daily basis). For me it was the most similar to the “Golden man” on top of the capital in Salem. It helped me navigate around the city. I actually grew so fond of it by the time I left that I took it upon myself to bring home with me a special memento 🙂  Although truly epic, it still doesn’t quite do it justice compared to the real thing!
