プラハ / Prague

せっかく東に行ったので、滞在時間 18 時間のプラハひとり旅もしてきました。チェコに着いた途端スマホの Google マップ アプリの言語がチェコ語になってしまい、設定の変え方がわからず、おおよそこういう意味だろうと見当をつけてぶらぶらしたのが楽しかったです(どなたかご存知なら教えてください)。朝のモルダウ川の散歩が一番好きでした。あと、ソーセージの大きさは指 8 本分くらいありました。

Then I went on to Prague, Czech Republic, for a short trip. What I liked the most was walking on the bridge over the Vltava river (aka the Moldau) early in the morning before the city was flooded by tourists. As many of you may be aware, Smetana’s “The Moldau” was repeatedly playing in my head.

ライプツィヒ / Leipzig

次は東ドイツへ。住宅エリアはとりわけ石畳の道が多く、グラフィティで溢れる街という印象。友人が通う大学を見学し、学食も堪能(さやえんどうの量!)。

Traveling further to eastern Germany. My next destination was Leipzig where my former classmate is working on doctoral thesis. We strolled through the city (I was amazed by the amount of stone-paved streets. There were much more such streets compared to the western Germany in my opinion), enjoyed the creative works of the graffiti artists (well, some were not), and ate lunch at the canteen at her university.

マンハイム & バート・デュルクハイム / Mannheim and Bad Dürkheim

シュトゥットガルトからさらに北上し、友人の両親の友人と合流。彼女が働いている幼稚園を見学し、ワインを楽しんだ後にほろ酔いでワイン畑をそぞろ歩き。幼稚園の子ども達がくれた手紙が嬉しかった!

Going a bit north from Stuttgart. My next destination was Mannheim where my friends live. I first visited a forest kindergarten, had a wonderful time with children playing in the woods, amazed by the 100% hand-made toys, and we went hiking in the wine fields in Bad Dürkheim. Letters from the children made my day.

シュトゥットガルト / Stuttgart

シュトゥットガルトというとメルセデスやポルシェなど自動車産業が盛んなイメージがありますが、自然が多く散歩が楽しい街です。日曜のためほとんどのお店が閉まっていたこともあり、森に散歩に行きました。16 世紀に領主の命令で青い靴下を履いて歩かなければならなかったという謎の由来を持つ「青い靴下の道」を歩いていると、リスに遭遇。赤いエゾリス、という感じでした。料理の写真は全体的に黄色いですね。体重計には日本に帰るまで乗らないことにします。

Stuttgart is known as an automotive industry city as exemplified by Mercedes or Porsche. But here is exactly the place to enjoy hiking in the forest. It was Sunday and almost all the shops were closed, so we decided to spend the morning and early afternoon in the forest. As we were walking on the Blaustrümpflerweg (Blue Socks Trail - named after the fact that, in the 16th century, the load at that time ordered citizens to wear blue socks), we encountered a couple of cute red squirrels. Of course I didn’t forget to enjoy the local specialty - Maultasche :)

シュヴァルツヴァルト / Schwarzwald

ドイツの人は「ちょっと散歩に行く」と言って平気で数時間歩くといわれますが、当たっています。よく歩いた 2 日間でした。すんでのところで嵐を免れたこともよい思い出です。

German people love cars, but they also love hiking. For many of them, going for a walk means enjoying hiking for at least two hours. That we managed to escape from the sudden thunderstorm is now part of our good memories.

Aug 18-19, 2017, in Schwarzwald (Black Forest), Germany

2017 お盆 / Obon Holiday 2017

ご先祖様をお迎えし、昼寝と窓から入る風を楽しみ、マンボウを食べ、ジャンボタニシの様子を見、トカゲを追いかけ回したお盆。これからしばらくドイツです。

Obon is a Japanese Buddhist event to honor the spirits of ancestors and celebrated in mid August. This year was especially important to my family as it was the first Obon following the passing of my grandmother (the other grandma whose photos I have been posting here is healthy enough to grow all kinds of vegetables). We talked about all the good, funny stories of my grandma and other ancestors for hours... This is our way of celebrating the time of the year :)
Now, I'm off to Germany!
