What Election?

There’s an election going on, and I have no idea what the issues are. For a political junkie, that is painful. Even worse, I just discovered there are not one but two elections underway in my area right now. I don’t have a vote in either. I think. Today I’m going to ignore Sulzburg’s municipal […]

The Crane Moves On

Early last week I was wondering about the stalled construction for the new apartment building at the edge of town. I asked my wife how the construction company could afford to keep a crane up and idle for the past six months. I guess they couldn’t anymore. Thursday it was dismantled and removed. I just […]

More on Weckensonntag

I’m still traveling, which is why I opted for a rerun today. Mind you, it seemed logical to run the 2018 sequel yesterday’s post, given that they were written to go together.   Continuing from where we left off yesterday, some thoughts on this unique Sulzburg tradition. For my neighbour it is a nostalgic time. When […]
