The Grass Van on tour

They are German, they are open minded and open hearted, they are sooo nice, they travel  for six years around the world now and their family is growing. You can see them sometimes gathering the mess some other people have left behind them – for sake of this planet. The Grass Van is Australian but you can see it now in Europe, after a long trip for diving in the culture of Asia.
I met them on the Black See coast in Bulgaria and hope to see them some other time in some other country again – because our conversation just started and seemed to be endless.
Next stop of the van – Austria.

Harz im Harz

Harz means in German pitch, the Harz mountain is acctually the pitch mountain.
At the Harz mountain I was given a present – many pitch pieces – in the form of tree tears or even juwery from the famous Kaliningrad, Königsberg.
Thank you!
Danke!
Спосибо!

Walpurgis in the Harz mountain

It is time again to go a bit crazy in Harz, at the foot of the Brocken peak. Here it is: Walpurgis, tonight.
But it is also a time to think about many things we take for granted and acctually we don’t question as we should.
To read (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Thomas Mann and Edward Albee or Bram Stoker – you see a lot of lecture), to read, to think over and to stay and be human after all!

And I was there too and enjoyed my performance.

Walpurgis night

A night post of mine! Because this night is Walpurgis – the celebrated in Nord Europe feast.
More details you can see for example here:

From me – the decoration moments at the Harz mountain. And don’t wonder, most of them are staying the whole year long because this is the symbol of Harz:
