Last days - they are short days

semi-overcast

Last days are running fast.
Packing and some meetings, last talks, preparation and stuff.
Last city-strolls.

AUF WIEDERSEHEN
(We) came to say hello (and thanks!) to Monika and Gerhard. I missed a moment to take their photo in the village, so here they are - in their city-apartment. My Austrians. Angelika was busy at work and we didn't meet additional time before the flight. But Gabriel was there. He is not in photos - cause he was in his "shy" mode. Never mind, I have other photos of them.

and the last pics from the island - it's not yet autumn, but summer has gone. Water is transparent and too cold for swimming

BEAVERS

Yesterday night we went to watch beavers! It wasn't easy in darkness but we seen them coming. Truly, I feel much less for them now then I used to do. They erase all trees on the island with monotonic callousness. I do understand that they have to eat for living, but why to damage each time another tree? It's annoying behaving.

At another side I feel sorry for them. They supposed to be wild animals of countrysides, but they live in horrible conditions - it's not about lack of food, the area is green and very clean - both, ecologically and tidy. Another thing is disturbing. In night time all sound especially loud: disco-music from the club over the river is bumping the ears, train is rambling, ambulance is howling and if it was not enough - there are frequent helicopters in the sky.
