Narcos

Wow!
This is good TV!
Narcos.
The life of Pablo Escobar.

If you don’t know him, watch the show.
If you know him..watch it!
I was fascinated from beginning to the end.
Nearly binge watched it over the weekend.
The story is really well told and captures you from the start.
And now I have to read books on Escobar.

Washing Totoro

Madame did wash Totoro in the washing machine.
It looked like the poor guy was constantly running :))

Urlaubslektüre 2015

Vacation has been way to short!
I am so much behind on my reading list.
Due to constant entertaimnent, I was not able to finish all the awesome books I prepared.
But..there is an upside, as I did read still lots of really good titles.
I started my vacation, going from Stuttgart to Paris, from here to Rennes, to Saint Cast and staying there on the beach, going to Le Mont Saint Michel, Dinan, etc. with following book:
The Battle for Japan, 1944–45; Max Hastings
A summary of the last year in the pazific. On 700 pages.
This detailed description of WWII gave me some quite interesting fatcs on parts of the war, one does not lern about in school.
Must read for all history buffs, who know already enough on the european theater.

I tasted blood..and wanted more.
Halfway through the book, I thought of Ardennes, well, what do we got here?
Ardennes 1944: Hitler’s Last Gamble; Antony Beevor
What hapend in the last days of 1944..detailed analysis, what went where with whom wrong.
Quite nice, when you read it on a warm beach…

Finishing WWII there I looked for someithng fun and found another dystopian SciFi:
Owner Trilogy; Neal Asher
For anyone who hates gouvermnent, this is the perfect book..
I can already hear your ..”Told you so!”
Dystopian tyranny, well, could there be a good one, and what happens on earth under just one gouvernment.
Loved it!
3 books and still open end.
Recommended for all who like near future and hard Sci Fi.
And all the others who like to travel to the stars :)

Zwerge

Dear German parenting magazines, kindergarten, children hospital, etc.
I have a word for you.

This .. is a dwarf/Zwerg:

This on the other hand,  we call a human baby:

I know, it can be hard to confuse those things from time to time.
One does eat, shit, pee, cry and shout all the time,  everywhere.
The other one doesn’t wear a beard.
That should be enough hint for you to not mix this up.

Seriously, why do they always call babies Zwerge?
Because they are small?
But they grow!
Otherwise we could call them North Koreans..statistically speaking. .

Geburtsvorbereitungskurs

Madame is not thrilled.
The trainer is a weird midwife.
Very alternative and eco.
Has a creepy way of listing to other people. Her voice is almost to low to understand.
There are 16 participants in this training, compared to 8 as it is usual in France.
Trainer was 20 minutes late and closed the session 30 minutes earlier.
Very un German.
She really does not want her to be present at birth.

Seems to be a hell of a course
:))
