When you're a kid everything is just so big and when you return as a grown-up to a place that you last visited when you were little it is sometimes hard to recognize, because now the houses and trees and streets seem so small.

The kid took pictures, too, some of which are better than mine.

Here are more Carnival pictures - this time with more costumes that are not uniforms.

Mostly waterbased creatures )

..nor has it pancakes.

Traditionally, it is called Violet Tuesday (after the flowers, not the colour).

This year, we went to the big parade in town and of course I took pictures.

It took me a while to crop and tinker, so that I can share some of them with you.

German Carnival is frequently a very serious thing, and often not very creative costumewise. I was pleasantly surprised regarding the outfits (helped by the motto) and see for yourself whether anyone had fun.

The people designing exam questions are mean:

There are six words and seven definitions. If you answer everything correctly and then get to no. six (exercise) you have two choices left:

C activity you do to stay fit


H a short period of training

This is an exam for the students who are leaving school with basic qualifications and yes, English is their second (or in some cases third) language.

I am expected to only accept C.

That's splitting hairs, right?

I'm not one for New Year's resolutions, but for some reason this new year has presented itself with a motto: Bewegung - which is German for movement but also exercise and progress.

Which doesn't mean that I've got big plans for going to the gym but in general, I'd like to do a little less of sitting around and a litte more of moving about.

Traditionally, the new year needs to be started with a long walk (to blow the cobwebs away) and 2014 saw us walk around Schloss T├╝schenbroich.

Here are my pictures )
