Thursday 12 April 2012: Flamingo
So this morning I thought I'd have a bit of an explore. Through the Rosengarten (the Rose garden - German throws you a biscuit every now and then) and there they were, a stand of Flamingos. I wasn't expecting that. And apparently neither were they, most of them were asleep. This one though was having a good rummage around.
It's seeing/finding stuff like this that makes my day. Who knew there were Flamingos in Mainz? Who knew the Rosengarten was so good? I must have a proper explore sometime soon. If nothing else, I can get a couple of other Flamingo blips.
Today's song in German is this :-
Gott weiß, ich bin kein dummes Mädchen
Es sollte mir wirklich egal sein
Gott weiß, ich bin keine Schülerin
voll Aufregung in ihrer ersten Affäre.
Wird es mich runterziehen
Diese seltsame Vielfalt von Elend und Freude
Ich fühle mich ziemlich verrückt
I quite like this translation.
