still in Tel Aviv

February 29, 2008

as mentioned before, I had an impressive tour to Jerusalem and although I would consider myselve as 10000% non religic it did touch me…

so much on acient history and all the religions ruling the grave of Jezus + the fact that next to these also the arabs living/fighting for this city and crossing the same streets as the christians and ortodox jews is something you’ll never forget.

unfortunately I told my wife about this tour and as she is a catholic religion teacher who dreams of going to Jerusalem her whole live you can guess that her reactions about my visit – knowing that I normally refuse to walk long distances (we did a 3,5 hour walk) and also persistantly refusing to enter any church (max 2 visits per year and now we walked into 4 or 10 depending on how you’ll count based on the various religions ruling within the same church)Β – were not very pleasant or more like I’ll kill you.

She wouldn’t do it but when she gives me a reaction in a single word which is “aha” trust me, you know that you are dead meat πŸ™‚

as we walked the route of Jezus we had to take this picture of me. πŸ™‚



Tel Aviv……47-7 or 46-8

February 28, 2008

you may decide as this hotel in Herzliya decided to hang the paper sidewards 😦

presumably they wanted to hang it correctly but forgotten how it goes πŸ™‚

anyhow, lovely weather down here and had an impressive visit to Jerusalem.


Langenhagen 46-7

February 21, 2008


Yep, back in town (Langenhagen near Hanover)

The Holiday Inn and Maritim (both Airport) were full so the put me in the Ambiente. Nice Hotel, very friendly people and WLAN for €5,- per day (not FOC but pretty close πŸ™‚ )

well, off course this hotel also knows what’s the correct way to ahng the paper….. πŸ™‚

come on Alex, where is the response?

I am now at the end of the world but it’s beautiful here in Hoogeveen. I’m at an exhibition in Hardenberg which is actually a really nice exhibition as it is an “all-in” exhibition which means that all drinks and food are included so you don’t need to spend any money for these.

unfortuneately the hotel screwed me with the paper so no new result….lucky you Alex…. πŸ™‚


well, I thinkΒ I already stayed over 20 nights in this hotel (Holiday Inn) and every time the paper was hanging the right way, so lucky you Alex that I didn’t count them every time πŸ™‚

This time 2 nights here and also this time the paper was hanging correctly….off course

For the rest you get this typical “groundhog day” feeling again…another day another hotel.

and just for the sake of it, another picture from the Loo of the Holiday Inn Hanover Airport
