Women resisting against dictatorship, suppression and unjustness – it has always been. The courageous suffragetes for example at the beginning of the twentieth century who fight for their rights. Then the brave women during the NS regime resisting against a dictatorship. May it be as political prisoner at the concentration camp Ravensbrück or as heroine of a novel, called Charly
Finally they are back, the Drecksclub of Braunschweig. With the slogan “Once upon a time in the dirt” (in reference to: “once upon a time in the west”) the gang renders the West uncertain. Countrystyle and music determine the two-hour show. And like always time flies when you are having fun. After a long lean period finally an evening without
New York 9/11, the terrorist attacks, the collapse of the twin towers. We will never forget those pictures. Especially as we could not image that something like this is possible.

In the low season the weather is still fine (20-25 degrees), the most beautiful bathing bays are really abondoned and all mountain villages are peaceful and quiet.

Hiking on Corsica. For a week. With a girl friend and an organized hiking group. I always wanted to visit the fourth biggest island of the Mediterranean Sea.

We are using the long weekend over October 3rd to follow the Weser cycle path from Hannoversch Münden to Nienburg. In four days we cycle 270 kilometres. The weather conditions are fine. Even though rain is forecasted we have more sunshine. However the stages are pretty long and my legs are arching after a while and that’s not the only
Even though it is an object of daily life I knew little so far about the production of glass which takes a great effort. A visit to the LWL Glashütte Gernheim makes the difference. Next to the „show production“ of glass in the nice cone-shaped tower I inform myself about the manufacturing and use of the transparent material in detail.
This year we visited castle Fürstenberg and its factory for the first time. On our bicycle tour along the river Weser we came across the building. And of course we made a stop there to have a good look at the famous porcelain. This saturday, however, we are at the Städtische Museum Braunschweig to learn more about the history of
60 years of German-Turkish friendship (GTf) is the slogan of the “Gurbet-Tour” by Shanaya, a band from Hanover on the occasion of 60 years “home” in Lower Saxony. What is the reason for the Gurbet-Tour? Gurbet means “emigrant”. It is about theGerman-Turkish recruiting agreement, which was signed 60 years ago (meanwhile 61 years).

Two days of entertainment on a high level: that is the Pflasterzauber in Hildesheim. From September 2nd – 3rd, 2022 an international circus theatre and dance festival is taking place at Hildesheim. And that is not exxagerated. The different artists help with their performance to forget about the world for a day. It is fun and high spirits. That is
