I am a goose, not a number

While enjoying the famous Unterer Schlossgarten deep, deep within the bowels of Stuttgart I happened across about a zillion migrating geese, and almost all of them were wearing bands like this one:

I think hardly a goose – except maybe a crazy goose – would be inclined to wear a bracelet, but an absurd question remains: who would invest time putting bracelets on the legs of around a zillion migrating geese?  And for what purpose?

Zombie Readiness in France

I’m quite shocked that the prevalence of Covid-19 is as high as it is, because there is no other country in the world that is so well prepared for a zombie apocalypse as France. I’ve written about the robo-hotels, the robo-food, the robo-stores – as well as the zombie-proof outside laundry machines.

Here’s another snap to continue the series, showing not only an outdoor laundry but also robo-bread and robo-pizza capabilities!

Donzenac – an incredible medieval French village – 2

Continuing the series, as everyone knows France is filled with incredible villages dating back to the Middle Ages.  Many of them are famous and they get lots of tourists.

But . . . some of them are so remote that tourists have never visited. When small children in these villagers happen to see an “outsider” (in French: étrange éetranger) they recoil in fear because they think they are the only people on the planet – and some of them later need professional counseling.

Donzenac is one of these villages. You probably won’t find it on Apple Map or Google Earth – it is located so deep within France that – even if you knew what you were looking for – it would take you many hours and a lot of luck to come across this place, and of course any locals you might stop to ask would refuse to acknowledge that this place even exists!

As you can see, even the signs are written 100% in French, because they assume that no étranges étrangers would ever come here:

Well, OK, maybe 1-2 Germans have been here – but certainly no more than that!
