I just realised I’ve been to Germany twice this year (I visited Munich just last month)… Well, Germany is Hubby’s home country, so we visit quite often. And last weekend was one of these short visits.
Anyway, Professor M had a meeting or something in Hannover (yes, I’m using the German spelling here) on Friday, and I tagged along. You know, to do some sightseeing. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans…
It was the worst kind of weather for sightseeing: miserable and cold, with wet snow. Now, being a Finn, I’m used to cold weather and snow, but I really hate that 0 °C weather. You know, when the snow turns into slush as soon as it hits the ground. Flu weather, that’s what I call it. Because it’s not snow and it’s not rain but something in between, and it makes you cold and wet and miserable.
And I always catch a cold then. And this time was no exception. Yes, remember the flu I had just a while ago? Well, it came back, with a vengeance… Or maybe it’s another flu. Who knows, apparently there are so many flu viruses going around (but why do I have to catch them all???). In any case I’ve been battling another flu since Friday. But I’m digressing here…
So, I had a few hours in Hannover, on a really cold and miserable day. Naturally, I grabbed my camera and went for a walk.
Hey, I’m a Finn, remember? I won’t let a little bit of sleet get in the way.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking: this would have been the perfect day to visit a museum, go shopping, do anything indoors (especially as I’d just got over a nasty flu…). Guess what, the thought never even crossed my mind. I wanted to get the feel of the place, like I always do, by walking around more or less aimlessly. In hindsight, it wasn’t the best idea, but how was I supposed to know having just been ill with the flu doesn’t mean you’re immunized against another one?
I’m so over winter… Hey, Mother Nature, isn’t it time for spring soon?!?
PS: I’ve been really busy pretending I’m an artist lately.
