1820 - Sweet Memory V

Have you ever used the expression “See you on the other side”? Sounds so cool, huh?

Well, we tried it today, but the guys helping us didn’t show up. A little bit of a communication problem 🙂

This means another night in the old apartment, but I suppose it will be the last one. On the “other side” our books are not yet all sorted in, but we make progress.

Of course again I didn’t find time to take images, much less to make one last attempt at swimming, What a pity, these are so beautiful days and gradually it’s getting colder.

Like yesterday the Song of the Day is “Sweet Memory” from Melody Gardot’s 2008 album “Worrisome Heart”. See a video on YouTube.

Portofino... what a spot. So pitoresque and so ultimately snobistic in the same time... It is quite an achievement to shoot that sight without a yacht in the view... ;-) cheers ®

I didn't particularly like Portofino. It's all designer shops and jewelers, and seeing expensively clad guys half my age going on board of 30 meter yachts, golf bags over their shoulders, ... it does not make me envious, it makes me feel a little out of place. It is no desire to belong though. There is so much pose in that, so much ritual, so much needless waste of life time, in a way it is like watching an expensive but boring movie. Of course there's also something like obscenity in that kind of most likely unearned wealth, at least in a world where people die of hunger because traders bet on rising food prices. Well, maybe a tiny bit of envy 😄
