Shoes and booz'

Girls' fun.

Approaching Palma airport, seeing bays of Alcudia and Pollença.
Which airline? Check the wing.
Booked LH, but operated by Sunexpress.
Get the Turkish feeling!

Grocery shopping in Manacor.
Get the booze AND get some (6 pairs) shoes.
Amazing prices: Ipanema flip flops for 10€ a pair,
funky sandals 15€ a pair, indeed a great deal.
Each "girl" got two pairs.

Girls long weekend in Dar Ahlam.

Sightseeing in Son Servera.

Dar Ahlam garden products.
Sue has to plan what to cook.

Decoration over the weekend.
Somehow the local mosquitos prefer visitors' blood.

Okay, I'll get some sandals with wider things as well, soon.

View from the bar.
Hotel Pleta de Mar, Canyamel.
Luxury by nature.

Well, it is soooo bad to make pics of your food, or ...?
Or make pics of yours friends making pics of the food?
Whatever, the food was excellent, the service very polite.
Perfect location.
Adults only.

¡Thanks Val for cleaning the pool!

Cheese igloo

When the weather is really hot you have to create 
images on the table that make you feel cool.
Like an igloo.

Well, this is ... feta cheese.

The same from the side.
And how does the fresh garlic belong to the pic?
It just is a decoration.

And honestly, what a fantastic decoration for the boring fish!

Well, this was Oderazzi's cooking posting.

Keep cool, the heat is on.

Open Air Ostend

It really is a privilege to live next to the river where all 
along the summer concerts and other happenings are happening.
Like today, the European Open Air.
Warm up for the HR Radio Symphony Orchestra
was the world famous trumpet jazzer Till Brönner.

The concert location: at the river Main.

Even a VIP boat.

Cool program.

The doors to the concert area open at 16 hrs, 
so, the first people start suing at 15 hrs,
in order to catch a chair.
People who come later do not have to line up 
and they bring their own camping chairs.
Never seen so many people in front of our building.

Huge stage facing the big sponsor, European Central Bank.

I tell you, look at the stage, there is a big orchestra
and a choir.  

Kind of Woodstock feeling.
12.000 people were let in to the concert area.

Till Brönner on the screen.
Actually a great view for people sitting further back.

It’s twenty years now that Europe has been united in a special way 
by the euro currency. An event that the »Europa Open Air« is of cause 
happy to celebrate with a particular program. The Frankfurt Radio Bigband 
is looking forward to a special guest on stage, as Till Brönner is one of the most 
successful German jazz musicians and a figurehead of the European jazz scene 
that will join the group at the Weseler shipyard.The musical direction is taken 
over by the Swede Magnus Lindgren, a close confidant of Till Brönner and his 
music projects, who also successfully directed other projects of the hr-Bigband 

Suddenly so many boats on Main!

Never enough toilets ... for ladies.

Bikes everywhere.

I tell you, bikes.

And here the concert:

Green egg


The different way of barbequing.
Lucky us, friends of ours have this egg.

Lucky us, they absolutely wanted to make the 
Spanferkel! Suckling.

She looked so happy ... our friends cut the head off,
they were not sure if I want to see it on the plate....
I was missing it, with an apple in the mouth.

Finnisch für Anfänger:

TÄYDELLINEN = Perfekt / Perfect

Tatort Südseite

Tatort Südseite.
Nicht für schwache Nerven.

Hier hat sich eine dramatische Szene gespielt.
Eine Kopflose Leiche liegt nicht weit weg von einem Kotzhaufen.
Nebenan eine Blutflecke. Was ist passiert?
Ermittlungsteam 3Ypsilons vermittelt um neun Uhr morgens.

Eine kopflose Schlange.

Ein Haufen Kotze.
Katzenkotze, sagt der Kommissar.
Ja, eindeutig Katzenkotze, bestätigt die Kommissarin.

Eine Katze hat Teile von der Schlange geschlungen,
aber nicht behalten. Zu viel Gift? Doppelmord?

Gift kann nicht im Spiel sein, die Ameisen würden sonst nicht so
eifrig beide Trümmer bearbeiten.

Und so sah es nach ein Paar stunden aus, in voller Sonne.
Schlangenteile separiert, Kotzhaufen leergegessen.

Entweder zu sonnig für die Ameisen,
oder die Leiche ist von innen schon leer gesaugt.

Kommissarin drehte die Leiche auf den Rücken.
Sehr glänzend, diese Bauchseite.

Und endlich nachmittags haben die Ameisen auch den Tatort
verlassen, mit vollen Bäuche, vermutlich. Tatortreiniger, danke.

Kommissarin hat die Schlangenleiche entfernt.
Schlangenhandtasche kann noch warten.

Hinweise über Überwachungskameras.

Nach diese Katze wird nicht gefahndet,
die Kommissare sind dankbar, dass das Tier solche
uneingeladene Gäste abköpft!

Hast du schon gehört?
Fall erlöst!

Yes, they do have wonderful flowers, the yuccas.

Actually had to get a ladder to get a better view.

The other plant is a bit smaller and not yet so far with the blossom.
Both beautiful.

Let's see what Wikipedia knows:

Yucca is a genus of perennial shrubs and trees in the family Asparagaceae, 
subfamily Agavoideae. Its 40–50 species are notable for their rosettes of 
evergreen, tough, sword-shaped leaves and large terminal panicles of white 
or whitish flowers.

Remember the wasp spider?

Here they hang.

With their hanging lunch.

This one busy eating her packed lunch (a wasp).

BTW they eat upside town.

This one hanging ... looks like a dead waspbee.

Just to give you an idea of the size.
And next time weeding remember to wear gloves.
