Normal = boring?

Oh well, what is normal anyway? (shhh, the spelling isn’t).

Peace Lisbon

Posted in Altstadt, arts & crafts, politics, university on April 4, 2011 by D.B.

A rather harsh, but very artsy criticism of the EU’s Lisbon treaty. While the treaty does in fact envisage rising miliary spending, a common EU security and defense policy seems further away than ever at this point. Common military operations even more so. Hell, they can’t even find a proper consensus regarding Libya.

(The graffito is on the scaffolding that shades Neue Universität at the moment, as seen from a library window across Grabengasse.)

A little further up from Neckarmünzplatz, we get to Karlsplatz. It’s undoubtedly the spot in the old town that gives you the best view of the castle. But for now, we turn the other way and see a fountain figure and Heiliggeistkirche in the back.

One of those things you only discover at the 200th time of looking… Judging by the ironwork, this house at the corner of Ingrimstraße and Mittelbadgasse used to be a butcher’s shop.

On a highly ironic note, today the shop is an Indian (!) takeaway. Apparently, the owners don’t have a problem with the cow-and-axe decoration above their entrance.

Or they just haven’t realized it’s there, just like I used to do for so many years.
