Upon summer vacation, Jose spent time at Wilhelsmfled and lived with the family of Pastor Karl Ullmer, a Protestant pastor for three months. The family was very hospitable and kind to Rizal during his vacation.
After returning back to Heildelberg, Jose wrote a to Pastor Ullmer - "I thank you very much once more. You may also recieve, when you are abroad, the same treatment and friendship as I have found among you; and if being a foreigner, I can do nothing for you in a foreign country, I can be of some service to you in my homeland, where you will always find a good friend, If I do not die of course. The joy of being understood by other people is so great that one cannot easily forget it. You understood me too, in spite my brown skin, which to many people is yellow, as if that were puzzling or absurb."
July 31, 1886, Jose made contact with Professor Ferdinand Blumentritt, the Director of Ateneo in Leitmeritz in Austria. They exchanged books with each other when Jose learned that the Professor was interested in the Tagalog Language.
University of Leipzig
August 1886, Jose arrived in Leipzig. At the University of Leipzig, Jose found out that Frederick Wensel, One of his acquaintances, is forever expelled from all Universities because of his conduct. The following day, he met Professor Friedrich Ratzel, a famous German historian and Dr. Hans Meyer, a German anthropologist.
Jose also visited two largest breweries in North Germany and was invited to drink there. He red news and admired an association of prostitution in Europe. He stayed there for two months doing some translation and sent them to the Philippines. He also visited Leipzig Gymnasium four days a week.
October 29, 1886, Jose arrived in Dresden and immediately visited the picture gallery. The next day, he visited the Japanese Garden, Green Vault, and the preciousness of Saxon of Monarchy.
At the Zoological, Anthropological, and Ethnographic Museum he saw many collections from the Philippines. He also met Dr. Adolph B. Meyer, the Director of the Museum. Before he left Berlin he heard mass for Catholics but Protestants are listening.
Jose next visited Berlin. There, he met several scientists like Dr. Feodor Jagor and Dr. Rudolf Virchow - the father of modern Pathology. He met the Latter's son, Dr. Hans Virchow and also met Dr. W. Joest, a German geographer.
Dr. Meyer and Dr. Jagor proposed Jose as a member of the Anthropological Society, the Ethnographic Society and the Geographical Society of Berlin. He was accepted and respected member
Rizal stayed in Berlin to iprove his opthalmic knowledge and worked at the clinic of Dr. Schweigger. He listened to lectures in the University of Berlin. He was mastering French aided by Prof. Lucie Cerdole. He also exercised daily at the Berlin Gymnasium and enjoyed walking along Unter den Linden boulevard.
German women impressed Jose. He wrote to Trinidad - "She is gossipy, frivolous, and quarelsome like the Spanish woman. She is not particular about beautiful dresses and expensive jewelry, though she could dress nicely like other women in the world."
Jose admired two German customs: the Christmas custom and the way of introducing oneself. During Christmas, everyone is decorative and with complete family. Another is the German's way of introducing oneself to stangers. It is a good manner when a guest bows his head, introduces himself and shakes the hands of everyone in the social function
But, Jose has a serious problem. He is financially broke. He already pawned the diamond ring given to him by Saturnina. He could not pay his rent. He was eating bread and water or some cheap soup once a day only. In Calamba, the economic situation is poor and his brother Paciano was desperately trying to raise money for his younger brother. The situation worsen when it was winter in Berlin and Jose ended being sick.
