Die weite Welt

Wide, wide world.
So far away but still so close.

Kind of like this idea:
World Cup is starting this week guess where?
да  (da), in Russia!
Enjoyed a German beer out of this cute can (!!!) 
on the flight back home from our holiday home.

In Frankfurt it is so easy to explore the wide, wide world.
Many museums show things from everywhere,
but especially the Weltkulturen Museum digs really in the dirt.
Oops ... I mean gets you really far away and into deepest jungle paths.
Above the installation of the big bang on the Indians in South America.

The Weltkulturen Museum presents contemporary interventions and works 

fusing the political and lyrical by the internationally renowned artists 

Ayrson Heráclito and Rigo 23.

The exhibition is the culmination of the museum’s many years of activities 
and research investigating the Afro-Brazilian and indigenous 
aspects of Brazil’s art and culture.

The Europeans draw borders in South America with a ruler.
The artist cut the holy Madonna in half.

You'd better read the catalogue if you are not as lucky I was,
was accompanying an Afghan refugee group in the museum,
enjoyed the guided tour.

Excellent photographs.

My favourite hobby: cutting!
This time the olive tree needed trimming.
Next time have to get new scissors, gloves ... whatever.

Finnisch für Anfänger:

ÖTÖKKÄ = Krabbeltier / bug

Seen in Cala Ratjada.

Also in Cala Ratjada.

Same same but different, two of them.

And these love bugs eat away the roses.

Well, a big bug ... successor of Tinto, maybe a sister.
Always hungry.

Wash your salad carefully!

This is the biggest bug I've seen - so far - in our house!
poor thing, flew in as we had the lights on in the evening.

Let's google ...

Bockkäfer ... longhorn beetle ...
Sarvijäärä eli hapsenkakkiainen!!!
That Finnish word is soooooo funny: kakkiainen!

Finnisch für Anfänger:

KAKKA = Scheisse / shit

These guys are not alive.
These were served in Andreu Genestra's restaurant as starters.
Funny looks ... and inside: Seeigel! Sea urchin in English.

These starters we enjoyed on outside in the evening sun.
Presentation gets 10 points from Oderazzi.
Not that I could eat anything, but looking is nice, too.

The main medium menu, 5 was too little, 13 was too much.
The kitchen needed some time to realize
that I really do not eat fish either,
they concentrated leaving out the onions and garlic.
Finally I got my versions, mainly meat instead of fishy business.

A trendy restaurant specializing in local products.
Great for special events, like round birthdays of friends.

Our home made dinner was quite the contrary:
fried sobrasada sausage with eggs and zucchini-potato casserole.
Sobrasada made by our Majorcan neighbour Antonia
and zucchini from our own garden.

Wikipedia knows:
Sobrassada (Catalan pronunciation: [suβɾəˈsaðə]; Spanish: sobrasada)
 is a raw, cured sausage from the Balearic Islands made with 
ground pork, paprika and salt and other spices. 

More Majorcan recipes and life stories (in German) in this book:

Yes, we have it, found it in Tortuga, the cute shop in Capdepera.

And in my Frankfurt garden we'll soon start the wine production.
But we are getting some grapes again.

Underneath you can see leaves of tobinambour. 
You can eat the roots, they look like potatoes.

The Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus), 

also called sunroot, sunchoke, earth apple, or topinambour, 

is a species of sunflower.
