A weekend reflection: Prelle


Photo from this week's short trip to Bavaria, Germany. Can you see the kind of metal cage hanging over the river? It is called a Prelle, a bounce, aka baker's cage. It was used for water penalties. The penalty was mainly applied to bakers. The weight of bread was prescribed by the authorities. If a baker was caught cheating, he was put into the cage, and dipped several times in the river.

More weekend reflections here.

Wochenende in schwarz und weiss

Meaning: weekend in black and white, in German. Why? Because I took this photo in the small town of Eichstätt in Bavaria, half way between Munich and Nuremberg, 2 days ago. I used to live and work there, 30 years ago. One of the 2 Frenchies in town... This is the huge Residenzplatz, siege of the local prince-bishops. Yep, it is an extremely catholic place! And very lively, over 5000 of the 13.000 or so inhabitants are students at the catholic university.

Anyway, wanna see more b&w? Easy-peasy, just click here.

Ala hookah, aka water pipe. Very popular here. I tried it a few times in the Middle East (damn peer pressure but nothing illegal): not my thing.

I always travel light. The only souvenirs/presents I buy for friends and family are fridge magnets. This is in Belgrade, Serbia. 2 of the local "heroes", an antivaxer and a psychopath. Frankly quite shocked,  I decided to buy my magnets somewhere else. Nicer ones. I say no to assholes.

Eastward go!

I've been exploring eastern Europe for the last few years, mainly the Balkans. The Hungarian Parliament in Budapest, seen from the Fisherman's Bastion. The European head honchos declared a few weeks ago that Hungary is not a democratic state.
