Pokémon Hill

This is a monument in the very heart of Nuremberg. Until a few weeks ago the little cobblestone hill underneath was inhabited by little kids crawling up and sliding down. Nowadays it's under siege by folks carrying Smartphones with battery packs. You're right, they play Pokemon Go. From this monument one can access several PokeStops and Arenas without moving.
I am very curious how long it takes for the kids to claim their hill back.
Maybe the re-conquering of the hill will be a Meta-Pokemon-Game: Kids try to catch human Pokemon players in a gamificated way.
As a last notice: The name of the monument is "Narrenschiff" (Ship of Fools). Nomen est omen?

Swing Advantage

One of the lesser known advantages for me of being a parent: You can use any swing without feeling guilty - as long as you have your little kid on your lap.
I guess the advantage will go away soon though, as soon as the little one feels embarrassed by you. Any experiences you are willing to share?

Hate Control

There seem to be a lot of hatred raging around these days. Sometime it looks like the anger isn't connected to a specific human being but completely unattended.
If you feel some anger inside of you please be aware of it and don't let it grow beyond control.

...and all traffic at the junction stopped confused because red and green happened at the same time.

This is how sunrises are supposed to be.

Pipe Puppies

The yellow pipe had some yellow puppies. I spotted them in one of their first days out.
