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.

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 🙂

The North Sea

These past two weeks I was on vacation at the German North Sea with my family. Everything there is very flat and empty if you’re used to seeing mountains, like I am. The wind was strong and freezing. Our apartment was freezing until we found the switch to turn on the heating.

ImageNow I’m back home in the South with a cold.

Or in this case, a free sprite in form of a willful Irish pony that goes by the imaginative name “Mr. Pony.” He even made it into the bus tourism brochure of the Galway area.

He really was worth the stop and all he wanted as a bribe to endure our caresses were old apples…though fresh apples would have worked, too, I guess.
