I stumbled upon this enchanted place one morning during one of my long walks through the area. Isn’t it magical? The light was incredible. I felt like I was in a fairy tale. I wouldn’t have been surprized if the birds had started talking to me.
What you see here is the traditional style of roofing with reeds and building with bricks you tipically find in northern Germany. This house is actually a hotel. Wouldn’t it be incredible to wake up in that place and look out of the window and hear the birds sing in the morning? After a cup of great black tea (another product of the area), you could walk a quarter mile and see the ocean. Unless it’s ebb. Then you would only see black slime with lots of birds on it.
Had the perfect hangover day after a perfect night of cocktails, beers and dancing with friends. I made myself some bruschetta this evening to celebrate life. Just toast some bread slices in the oven for about 5 minutes. Mix some ripe tomatoes with basil leaves, olive oil, salt and pepper. Grate a clove of garlic on the bread and then spread the tomato mix on it. Superfast and really delicious. Antipasti are the best.
I haven’t seen the sun in days. Wintry white skies are a beautiful backdrop for autumn colors, though.
I love these colors.
I just finished writing an article on Angkor for my university newsletter and I’m still full of awe. The architecture is amazingly beautiful und was perfected to the smallest detail. I was attracted to the subject because pictures of Angkor look really romantic in a “lost world” kind of way, but scientists are actually researching Angkor’s history to find out what caused the demise of the civilization in this area.
Turns out it may well have something to do with overusing the land for agriculture, having an ingeneous, complex, but very fragile irrigation system, some climatic changes, and a very large population. Does any of that sound familiar?
I’m going to keep smiling anyway 🙂
