A couple of weeks ago we went to Germany and a "small" town called Bochum in the Rhur Area, to visit some friends that Christin got to know when she was in England. Here’s the story, or at least the pictures :P
We started off with eating a typical German schnitzel and finished the meal with a vanilla pudding that Christin forced Katinka to buy (:P)because we don’t have that in Sweden.
Katinka and Sebastian did the wash and me and Christin was just relaxing :).
After the dinner we went for a walk through the large park in Bochum and ended up in a nice pub and had a couple of beers. When we walked back to Katinka and Sebastians place we passed what Sebastian calls Bochums "Eifeltower" :).
The next day we went to Essen, a sligthly larger city and here I found whom to call next time I want a party – “Gulaschkanone” :). We had a afternoon tea/coffe/very bubbly cappucino. Then I found the “Sausage man”, I asked Katinka to buy a sausage for me and then I asked the Sausage Man if I could take a picture, but I don’t think i understood anything :). Well, the sausage was very nice :).
For some reason they had like the worlds biggest cake in Essen. It was very, very big! And it tasted real nice.
In Essen they have a very big, kind of museum of the industrial age. It’s a huge place that earlier was a coalmine. The place is called Zeche Zollverein and it was quite cool. I took som “arty” pictures there:
I found a nice symbolism in the picture with the bolts, It’s just like one among the others. It was probably like this the workers in this factory felt. This picture is also a very nice proof of what a lens with 1.4 apparture can give you :).
Sebastian, Katinka and Christin
When we were walking to Bochum city we passed a “Bismarck Tower”, it’s a pretty high tower and to be a good german you should climb the steps atleast once a week(or mayby once a month). Well you have a nice view from the top.
If you go to Bochum you have to have “Currywurst”. It’s sausage and currysauce, real nice! You should also have a beer from Fiege, a local brand that also was very neat. (If you go to Essen, don’t try their local beer it sucks!)
Just a nice tree in the park. I like how the leavs on the ground complements the tree in this picture.
The Germans idea of art? No, it was the german kids idea of art :).
And some funnyfaces :)
Thank you Katinka and Sebastian for a wonderful stay!
