I went shopping for groceries today, trying to avoid the big crowds tomorrow, when shops close early again in the preparation of New Year's celebrations. Three days of closed shops makes people stock up like it's 1999 again, filling their carts with amounts of food that would feed an army...
Bavarian still life
Our last New Year in Bavaria is rainy and cold, hopefully some fireworks will cheer up the atmosphere tomorrow night. I'm not a big fan of loud explosions, it is real torture for animals and small children, but over here people seem to prefer more silent rocket fireworks that only make hissing sounds and leave colourful trails in the night sky.
*** Have a happy New Year 2010,
I'm looking forward to seeing all of you there! ***
