Last fall we got a 5-show-ticket to the local opera house Aalto-Theater. We'd only been to the opera once or twice before, but we decided to give it a try. The last show will be in a few weeks and I must say I am really glad we got these tickets! We've seen interesting things, and some not quite so fascinating ones. We've seen ballet and opera and in one way or another, enjoyed it all. I've learned I love watching ballet very much, no matter if it's modern or very classical. What I've also learned is that most opera goers have gray hair!
Today I visited the gallery Clowns & Pferde in Essen, as I often do. My husband wanted to see the exhibition so I went with him - and was very pleasently surprised! I usually like Clowns & Pferde anyways, but this exhibition is something very different from what I have seen there before.
Last Monday we went to a Sneak preview, that is a cinema show where you don't know what you will be seeing, only that it is a film coming into cinemas soon afterwards. The film we saw was called Anomalisa, and it is a stop-motion drama about a self-help author Michael Stone, who travels to Cincinnati to promote his book at a hotel customer service convention. He is emotionally distant to everyone around him, whom he perceives as identical white beings with identical faces and voices - including his wife and son.
I was looking through my pictures from last year and realized I've been pretty active this year, visiting places, doing things. So I chose five pictures to show today - nothing fancy, just snapshots of five days of the 365 that were 2015. I hope you like them.
I don't know about you, but I get really dry skin in the winter! I wrote down some of my best tips to fight it on my other website natural-perfect-skin.com, and I thought I'd share an excerpt of that article in case you are struggling with the same problems!
Last Friday the spaceship C74 landed after a 41-year-flight through the universe. After 1 year of travel the ship and its crew reached its destination. Coming out of hyper space and hibernation the crew finds itself still in space not knowing where and when they are. The C74 autopilot is approaching a planet. Only basic live support systems are on, as well as the coffee machine, the champagne bucket and the lights!
Today was the first really cold day here. That made me think it's high time to post this little article about a day trip we did late August. Tt was a really nice weather so we did a little local excursion on both days (read post on trip to Duisburg Landscape Park here).
A while back I went on a historic train here in Essen, it's called Hespertalbahn (Hesper valley train) and it's run by a little association that likes old trains and uses the old tracks in the Hesper valley alongside the Baldeney lake! Some weekends in the year they drive these old diesel or steam locomotives with old wagons a short route from Kupferdreh to the Scheppen old cement factory.
