Floating world

island-02.jpg
the mythical floating island of the Illuminati
glimpsed only occasionally
if there's an r in the month
which there isn't
or if the Schneewittchen is about
which she isn't
so this is a very rare glimpse
indeed

trees

the forest here is huge,
deep, dark and dangerous
full of wolves, badgers and wild boar,
there are thousands and thousands of trees,
and they're all numbered,
this one is no. 54.

A Festival of Beer, amongst other things

When in Bavaria do as the Bavarians - go to Festwoche

fest-int-2.jpg

get yourself a litre of beer and half a pig, roasted

beer-fest.jpg

sit at long tables and listen to the local Umpah Band churning out seventies hits.

In the land of lederhosen and dirndles the accordion is king, though it has to be said it is being challenged by the mighty Roland.

Outside the attractions continue

including the stupefying Lift A Smurf

whereby you are invited to lift any three smurfs, at random, and the number thus revealed affords you a prize qualified by the colour and value of said number. We played long into the night. [honest]
