Kalt aber herzlich


Time for Stadion!

Of course, Eintracht won!

Holiday on ice for the "girls".

Eintracht souvenirs!

Chicken on bbq.

Chicken in the oven. 

Aleksis told a funny joke ... let me repeat it.
A Finn, a Swede and a Norwegian compared their flagpoles.
The flagpole of the Swede was so high that when he dropped an apple from the top 
it was already rotten when it landed.
The flagpole of the Norwegian was so high that when dropped an egg from the top 
it had become a chicken when it landed.
The Finnish flagpole is so high that when he dropped a baby from the top 
it had become a grandmother when it landed.

Radio is FUN!

Ahaaa, those foot prints I do recognize. Damn.

Hi guys, has it become too cold at the riverside?

You like my roses?


One of my boring tulip studies.
Spring, please come and send the rabbits back to the riverside!

ART SLAM im Kunstverein


You know these ... poetry slam, song slam ...
In ART SLAM each artist had 5 minutes to make a presentation.
The clock was visible.

My favourite Finnish artist in Frankfurt ... well, in Hanau,
Merja Herzog-Hellstén was presenting her works in form of a slide show.

I did get a short interview for SISU,
so stay tuned tomorrow!

BTW the Kunstverein was packed, absolutely crowded.
Next time this Art Slam has to be organised in a huge hall.

Also a performing artist.

Kind of milky meditation.

This British guy loves to paint portaits, goats and buidling sites.
Just wondering if he is living in our neighborhood,
this Mr Neighbour.

Hopefully the local press will show more of ART SLAM.
Participating artists were:

Sascha Boldt, Botanoadopt, Il-Jin Atem Choi, Björn Drenkwitz,
 Jonas Englert, Merja Herzog-Hellstén, Jin Kyoung Huh und Bernd Thiele, 
Kirsten Kötter, Peter Neighbour, Anika Rosenberg, Anke Röhrscheid, 
Sandip Shah, Jörg Thums, Eva Weingärtner, Matthias Zeidler.

After all those art experiences it was nice to walk home
through the winterly Frankfurt.

My Swedish colleagues this afternoon, Moni and Guni.

Colleagues? Well, we assisted in this training thing:
International Azubi-club learned about the intercultural
differences in Scandinavian countries, and in Finland.
Finland belongs to the Nordic countries, where Island is also included,
there are only three Scandinavian countries: Sweden, Norway Denmark.

Nick, our charming British anchorman.

IHK has cool conference facilities.

Action games were not missing,
here the Viking Snow Shoe run.


Not only running but also answering questions ... tricky.
Kind of "Stadt-Land-Fluss" game.

After hard exercise a lunch break was welcome.
Catering was provided by Little Finnland.
Salmon, reindeer, cheese, Köttbullar.

Finishing the day with Viking Chess "KUBB".
Finnish version is called MÖLKKY.

Would be interesting to continue the cooperation with this orga:

My very first shopping at ALDI in our street.
Today all customers get a rose, how sweet is that.
BTW They are searching Azubis.

Hei people, if you are interested in "Sukkulente"
you do not have to wait until Aldi is offering them with special price,
just come to my house and get some ... almost free!
So sorry Aldi, I'll still buy a lot of stuff from you in future.

Last night's icy rain created some transparent forms.

Rhododendrons should be able to survive these temperatures.

Had to make this pic to bring some color into this posting!
