I Got A Strange Message

Isn’t that funny …

… I THINK SO! Just imagine: A – by the way, incredibly attractive – friend of mine has sent my a traffic ticket because she was flashed for speeding in a village south of Munich in Bavaria (Germany). I was tempted to pay the fine for her – and you know why? She was caught … Weiterlesen »

Discover The Gaudy Dublin Doors!

WELL, WELL, WELL – I WAS IN DUBLIN MORE THAN ONCE, but these gayly painted doors never made an impression on me! But a few weeks ago I visited the Irish capital just for them, stimulated by the poster I show you here (issued by the city of Dublin as a tourist lure). Pretty views … Weiterlesen »

Absolutely Silly Question!

FORGIVE ME, I KNOW I SHOULDN’T ASK! But when I stood on Mt. Eden in the centre of Auckland, the biggest town of the Northern Island of New Zealand, the question came to me like a seagull: If I were to start drilling vertically into the ground, through the globe – where would I come … Weiterlesen »

Ah, Does Anyone Remember Bushkazi?

IT WAS BY FAR THE WILDEST SPORT ON EARTH! A kind of Polo match, called „Bushkazi“, with up to a hundred and more competitors, and the aim was to bring a dead goat or calf back to the judges table. Or what remained of it. It was „played“ on open grounds, as large as stretching … Weiterlesen »

Look What I saw In Zimbabwe!

I COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EYES – and the flash of an idea poisened my brain: Is it anti-african to show it here? In a „white“ blog? Well, I came to the conclusion that you might see such an hilarious toilet advice even in Lower Bavaria (Germany) or in Gurky Corner (Wisconsin/USA). This one here I … Weiterlesen »

Lake Chad is vanishing …

THIS LAKE WAS ONCE THE SOURCE OF LIFE FOR MILLIONS!

The northern basin is desert now, part of the … Weiterlesen »

CURIOSITIES Learn Co-Existence In Venice …

THAT’S WHY I ADMIRE THE ITALIANS! The „Don Camillo and Pepone“-Italians. Those who live and let live. Fight and embrace. Accept all contradictions of existence. And then I saw in Vernice, by chance and close to the Arsenale, at the corner of Corte Nova and Fondamenta de la Tana – two houses, not in best … Weiterlesen »

FRAUD The Ugly Trick of an Refugee …

LOOK, WHAT A SILLY EMAIL I GOT! I have no idea were these criminals got my correct contact. And isn’t it amazing that an allegedly poor refugee, allegedly stranded in Ouagadougou (Republic of Burkina Faso) has her own email address? And the money to run it? Hissa Razeen seems to be her name, but it … Weiterlesen »

FASHION The „Bilum“ Miracle …

IF YOU LOOK UP „BILUM“ in the Internet, you will be rewarded with hundreds of posts, showing  colorful woven pouches in all sizes. And I tell you: They have almost nothing to do with the „Bilum“ I know, the traditional transportation pouch of the tribes in Papua-New Guinea. Only the name was adopted. It’s a piece … Weiterlesen »

SCAMS … And Now Gaddafi’s Daughters!

WE HAD THE „NIGERIAN CONNECTION“, showering the world with fake emails, we had so far unknown uncles who died in car crashes (in Spain, in the USA, in Guinea and South Africa) and left us millions and millions (which never existed). Bold scams they were, banking on inborn greed and promising riches after paying considerable … Weiterlesen »
