Congratulations mate!

We started out as neighbors, became friends. Our friendship survived working together and living in different countries, on different continents. Funny, silly, intelligent, dangerously childish at times - I never thought he'd get married - but he did. And to a fantastic, intelligent, beautiful woman to that. Congratulations Séa, all the best to you and your beautiful new life partner and a light and full future, full of all of life's delights. :-)

We really wish we could've been there to celebrate with you, hope to see you soon anyway!

Archibald Fountain

Dad did it again, emailed me some news snippet out of SMH which triggered a memory of days past... In Hyde Park, Sydney, lies my favorite fountain. Of all fountains I've visited this is 'the one'. :-) The Archibald Fountain.

I always took visitors there, on one of the various walks I preferred when introducing Sydney to friends. Night time walks in Hyde Park was quite "adventurous" at times, when you had to dodge the droppings of the big fruit bats invading the trees in large segments of the park. 8-)

I like the fountain because of its setting and its shape, but most of all for the fan of water spouting up/outwards at the center statue.

Diving horses

Amazing, the things you find on the internet - and on YouTube in particular. This one caught me and I had to watch a couple of related videos as the context and pure madness of the whole thing was hard to come to terms with... In a way it is beautiful, in another way it's pure and utter madness and horses should never be trained to do this type of thing. 8-)

Warcraft für alles
