This was my day of departure. As usually, I took a train in the late afternoon, to reach home in the evening. Typically I plan a light touristic „lady’s program“ for the morning, which means a mixture of window shopping, sight seeing and coffee party, if there would not have been the exhibition „Power to […]
Schedule for my 3rd day in Frankfurt envisaged a visit at Naxos Halle. This spot in Frankfurt’s east end, is interesting for a lot of resaons at least. The production halls, built 1906/07, had until the 1960ies been owned by Naxos-Union, a producer of abrasives. The main hall today is a listed building and is […]

As the weather is persistently poor – lovely weather for Ducks – and no one would send a dog out of the house; moreover it is carnival too. I don’t know what is worse! So it would be better to stay where you are, lean back and put your feet up with a nice cup […]
