In Germany the city of Stuttgart is well-known for HipHop music and cars. The country's most famous HipHop group "Die Fantastischen Vier" formed here. Prestigious companies such as Porsche, DaimlerChrysler and Bosch established their Headquarters in the south-german metropolis. Generally, it is a clean and safe place, a perfect environment for old people. Innumerable elevators and escalators are waiting to transport travelers who have become tired of climbing stairs. Multitudinous ATM machines deliver cash to hungry consumers. Various artificial ponds, meadows and groups of trees form numerous small parks that fabricate the widely-known Schlosspark, a location for recreation, taking a walk, discussing the outcomes of the latest football match or simply playing chess.

After four weeks Baidi and I began to dislike Stuttgart. In our professional surroundings, we found the main interests of people to be of self-centered and material nature. By accident we encountered some individuals who we call "cool", who we admire, who we spend a lot of time with. They are our friends. They are only travelers. They want to leave this place as fast as possible.

In Stuttgart you can find many shiny things. Shiny fassades, shiny cars, shiny shop-windows. Walking up and down Koenigsstrasse, the main shopping street, you will find that city-dwellers are mostly dressed in suits and costumes. At first you will be amazed by the clean -and tidyness. Then you will feel quietude of the air. Quiet silent air. After a while you will sense how the silence is vibrating. Something is working behind the shinyness. You won't be able to discover what it is. However, you sense it cant be good. Maybe it will scare you and you will decide to leave.

You will find that this city is not more or less special than any other big city. Maybe you will meet someone who can make your stay pleasent. Maybe you are as lucky as us and you will find friends...

...when you have met new friends, you will face one serious problem though: besides MC Donald's you can hardly find a place to eat after twelve o'clock at night. just imagine!!!

We're young and need adventure. We need dirt. We need irregularities. So we decide to show you some of the not so famous sides of stuttgart through our pictures, our eyes. Right after this, we leave... :-)
