Light it up with Lanterns

    Yesterday night in my city, was St.Martin, a holiday in Germany. Typically, it is on the 11th of November (tomorrow). In the evening, a large bonfire is made in the city, where all the little kids go with lanterns. The lanterns are either electric, or have a candle inside, causing it to glow slightly.  After the fire, the kids go from house to house singing songs, generally in exchange for sweets.

Here are some lanterns I saw made by the 1st grade.

Man

I went with my host-mom and I thought it was fun! I even got a bread man with a pipe, a typical thing given to kids on this day.

Feuer

The fire was quite big! I could feel the heat at least 50 feet away.

Handmade Lantern

Here is an interesting lantern that I though was unique!

Lanterns WITH FLASH 😀

Overall, it was great and I saw something unique, another reason I love to travel.

Stay tuned for new updates to come.

The Pictures I Promised….

I went hiking with my friend Damien on Sunday. At one point, we came to a place with just wet rocks going straight up in the air. After about 15 minutes of climbing, sliding, and cursing, we got to the top.

We were literally “on top of the world”, standing on a stone as big the top of a car, above everything. We stood 200 feet in the air, standing on a ledge peering down at the world below.

Here is a panorama I built, by using a wonderful application called Hugin,  on the rock.

I could see about 300 miles around me and the sun was shining. The weather was bad the entire day, up to that point. It was beautiful then.

We then walked to our next destination, a ledge in the forest that was about 525 feet high.

There, Damien took 4 pictures of each season.
