The fog of the last few days has lifted, and it was a pleasure to go out in the fresh air today in not in a dismal blanket of low cloud. These two photos were taken in the Botanical Gardens in Braunschweig in bright sunshine. I found them today when I was putting the finishing touches to a Power Point talk, I will be giving to the "Bath/Braunschweig Twinning Group" in the Guildhall in Bath on Friday. I will talk and show photos for about 30 minutes, and initially assembled 45 photos, which I have now whittled down to 35. Still too many I think, but it is better to have too many rather than too few. My talk is called, "Summer Months in Braunschweig" and starts with a photo of a view from my window of a summer sunrise, and ends with a photo of a beautiful rainbow arc over my flat in Timmerlah on a wet summer evening.
I shall swot up tonight on the history and stories behind some of my photos, and hopefully I will be prepared for any questions that might be asked. I'm sure some of the members of the Twinning group with know more about the city than I do..
A friend rang on Tuesday to say that she is visiting a friend in hospital in Bath on Friday, and would I like to go with her. Of course I cannot visit the hospital, but I now have a companion on the bus to help the hour long journey pass by. The bus leaves Devizes at 11.37, and I should be in Bath by 12.45, traffic jams permitting.
