Jiiihaaa!!!!
Mummy has made a huge joy to me today:)
She showed me pictures of my idol Arthur Pauli (shows the german wikipedia, because the english one is bad) - she even named me after him. Only just spelled backwards. I wish so much that I meet him in person.

Hello again to everybody out there :)

I am still a bit confused about what happen today... but read it on your own :)

Today is "Dreikönigstag" and traditionally the Four Hills Tournament ends on this day. So, I have followed with TinaBibi and Mummy the whole competition in Norwegian, because she does not like the German commentators. It was very exciting.
To watch the ski jumpers as they plunge down the hill was great. Mummy told us that today,the competition take part in Bischofshofen - an Austria city - on a natural hill called Paul-Ausserleitner-Schanze.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4034/4252086838_15181ce65e_m.jpg
Here you have a little impression of that hill.

And Mummy also said that there is still much larger jumpinghills. So-called ski flying hills of which there are only 5 pieces in the world and in March Mummy will travel to Slovenia to the biggest one of these hills, since there is held the world championship.
And she promise me, that I will go there too – hopefully.
Throughout the transfer, I was hoping that they show Arthur. He took not part in the contest, but he was prejumper. Sometimes these are also shown, but unfortunately not today.

Here I am watching Wolfgang Loitzl. He had won the Four Hills tournament last season, and this without having ever win a World Cup before. He won his first World Cup during the tour. It was a very big surprise.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4252085656_9860490937_m.jpg


Oh and here it is Janne Ahonen. He is a great skijumper. In the next day I will read his biography before leaving to mondfalke on saturday. But one thing I must mention: he is the only ski jumper, who has already won the Four Hills tournament five times.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2713/4251314687_fe23f43722_m.jpg


Here we just look at Hyun-Ki Kim how he makes ready on the jump bar to make his jump. Unfortunately, he did not qualify for the final round of jumping.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4037/4251314303_fe5cf41ab4_m.jpg



Ultimately the Austrian Thomas Morgenstern won this competition, but only with 0.7 points ahead of the Finn Janne Ahonen and Swiss Simon Ammann.


And now here: The winner of the Four Hills Tournament 2009/2010...
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4015/4252087110_b102c296fa_m.jpg
it´s also an Austrian. Andreas Kofler. It is first major individual success. But he was nevertheless already successful. So he has won - with only 0.1 points behind his teammate Thomas Morgenstern - at the 2006 Winter Olympics silver medal on the large hill and won the gold medal in team competition.

It was such a great competition :) I love this sport!

And now I will go to bed so I have enough energy tomorrow to read the biography of Ahonen Janne.

Bye Bye iluaP ruhtrA

Hello!

I just wanted to say goodbye, because tomorrow I will dwell on Jänni. Mummy will get in touch again in my name, because we will have some visits by train so that we can make some photos.

Until then

Today Mummy and I started very early in the day. And everything just to rush in to the Harz because we wanted to see the women's ski jumping competition in Braunlage.
The first train we used was a metronome, and as can be seen on the clock it was once just 6:07 when we drove off.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4006/4266467069_0edecbd996_m.jpg
So I just decided to once again go to sleep in Mummy's jacket pocket.

Along the way we should have some moves from ...
Just like here ... http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2681/4266467271_9a4d637cd8_m.jpg

As you can see, it was still dark outside. Furthermore, it was snowing terribly. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2770/4267213754_1a29688b41_m.jpg


Oh, and here we were not the first time just on the tracks ...

Seesen, Germany - 9th January 2010

By: pegger



Jiihaa and here we are in Seesen, where the train was 40 minutes and went no farther. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4021/4266467905_9f2a78e6b3_m.jpg and since the German railway is so communicative, they got on the train, no information. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4010/4266468879_c5213bfc6e_m.jpg
But I used the time to explore the train.
Then I discovered the train toilets ... http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4068/4267214744_b44535ca33_m.jpghttp://farm5.static.flickr.com/4045/4267214844_ebb3d3b0ff_m.jpg http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4029/4266468397_800a061b72_m.jpg
But since there was not much more to discover, it was boring to me very quickly and so I heard, together with Mummy Musik. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2753/4266468591_65d52b23b9_m.jpg
between the time I read the timetable, but as the true long gone.

Oh, and here we are stranded ...
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2737/4267216062_0b4b838114_m.jpg
we had missed our connecting train to 5 minutes and then allowed to wait almost an hour on a draughty railway line. Jiihaa and here we finally boarded the last train for the time being http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4008/4267216172_ea654e18ab_m.jpg and I was glad of the cold glistening off play. But this train stopped again in the middle of the stretch http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4009/4266469707_9fecff2ff0_m.jpg but only for a few minutes. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4267216904_548e5f0aeb_m.jpg so I could enjoy the fantastic winter landscape once again ... http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4033/4266470183_4329eeb121_m.jpg

Goslar, Germany - 9th January 2010

By: Mondfalke

Hello!
As you know I have moved to another host, Jenny, and we had some time to spend in Goslar.
First we went without much plan through Goslar and saw the town hall and some more buildings.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDKKS0f8I/AAAAAAAAB9w/n7F2YxDhaA8/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar.JPG

We had heard about a mine there that is part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. So we decided to go there. As we missed the bus by a few minutes and didn't want to wait for an hour, we walked the way through Goslar and much much snow.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NCq-QRJiI/AAAAAAAAB5Q/XL4Dxkox3nM/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%283%29.JPG

Finally we arrived at the mine. It was at the side of a hill.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NCuZ0QG8I/AAAAAAAAB5o/r4F62LFfbEo/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2810%29.JPG
This was the street we had to walk up.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NCup8afcI/AAAAAAAAB5s/UDeB1A5kjiU/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2811%29.JPG

Then wen finally found the entrance to the mine.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NCvr1S94I/AAAAAAAAB50/0_JYdoduKFo/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2813%29.JPG

Then we walked in and first we went through the museum and found a lot of funny and interesting things.

This is the room were the miners left there clothes when they were at work. They could pull them up to the ceiling and in this way there was much space for all the clothes.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC09GsdwI/AAAAAAAAB6k/dTLRnaNEc4g/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2826%29.JPG
In Goslar they searched for metals and on this board they wrote down how much metal they found.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC1R3AlfI/AAAAAAAAB6o/lkLBdJpyrt0/s512/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2828%29.JPG
Here is the clothes room again and then we went inside the bathroom.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC2DxMHYI/AAAAAAAAB6w/KjuiVo_K7kw/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2830%29.JPG

We had the great chance to go with the mine railway down into the mine. It was very dark (you can't see it on the pictures because of the flash) and very loud.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC25ulP9I/AAAAAAAAB64/uQlcKegVvss/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2833%29.JPG

Here you can see the old lift. The miners used it to go down to the tunnels.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC5Nk2Y4I/AAAAAAAACM0/bPNmT-i9NVc/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2838%29.JPG
Then we saw some special places in the tunnels.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC5a_BqLI/AAAAAAAAB7Q/xE8bHGkcz8o/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2839%29.JPG

Everybody down in the tunnels had to wear a helmet but they were far too big for me.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC74RepXI/AAAAAAAAB7k/Auw0JG7NE1E/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2845%29.JPG

Then we walked through some of the mine halls but we didn't really understand everything that they had done there.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NC8UX0w0I/AAAAAAAAB7s/fcMVpdp_Mq8/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2848%29.JPG

Then we came along some stones and minerals in some kind of museum.

After we visited some halls, we took another look from outside the halls.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDCKySt_I/AAAAAAAAB8c/oIbBhhMUkhc/1%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Goslar%20%2863%29.JPG

The last hall we visited was a part with many different things, some from labor movement, some from industrial improvement and some we didn't get the connection to. We also didn't had much time as we wanted to get the bus back to the train station.

The very last thing we saw was the room with the trains for the mine.

Then we hurried to the bus and ended the interesting day at Goslar.

Hamburg, Germany - 29th January 2010

By: Mondfalke

Hello!
Today I was allowed to go to university with my host! I was very excited, I have never been there before and I will visit my first laboratory, too!
Outside we had very cold weather, a perfect day to do something indoors. At clear days you have a great view from there as it is on the 6th floor...
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDKtRykbI/AAAAAAAACM0/nD3NQQisS1w/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%281%29.JPG
I didn't really get what all the things were for but I think that is not so important as I won't do anything myself and they told me that is was mostly water in the bottles.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDK1sGpgI/AAAAAAAACM0/d1Z2sWCYsjU/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%282%29.JPG
They have quite a lot of chemicals there... I was a bit afraid but Jenny told me that the really dangerous things were stored somewhere else.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDLZenzkI/AAAAAAAACM0/rZPAORT3tbM/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%283%29.JPG
Here some coloured somethings are stored. I couldn't really see them but I could see mostly of the laboratory from the high places!
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDLlkfpuI/AAAAAAAACM0/DrLCbiuf8Pc/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%284%29.JPG
This is a place to do bad smelling things and also dangerous things. You can close the window and protect yourself while working through small openings. Oops, I think I got on the wrong side. Somebody there to help me?
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDMNUmVdI/AAAAAAAACM0/ohAdBoAxq-g/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%285%29.JPG
After my escape I found something really usual, a fridge and a sink with a place to dry the clean things.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDMfBsSKI/AAAAAAAACM0/GW3qxz5Su7U/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%286%29.JPG
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDNSIK2fI/AAAAAAAACM0/qJ2o77OY60k/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%288%29.JPG
Next to the door were some really strange boxes. Jenny told me that you can put ice in there and then use them to keep things cool outside the fridge. The ice won't melt very fast.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDN5LcMWI/AAAAAAAACM0/YLNZPeO2SRs/s512/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%289%29.JPG
Then I got used to the emergency shower. I am very glad nobody needed it while I was there.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDOB2QPJI/AAAAAAAACM0/Ksq75We40rU/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2810%29.JPG
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDOW7umvI/AAAAAAAACM0/p1-j78Kfido/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2811%29.JPG
Inside this cabinet it was very cold but the proteins needed it. They were somehow purified inside this machine...
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDPMGMcEI/AAAAAAAACM0/SA7w1LlxMJA/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2813%29.JPG
I wasn't allowed to enter this aquarium as there is no oxigen inside for some reactions you need to do without it.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDPpt0YRI/AAAAAAAACM0/g5e9jadwMG8/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2814%29.JPG
Oh, and now I was doing something myself. So exciting! You can see the coloured things from the boxes in the photo. I tried to put really small amounts of different chemicals inside them with the pipette but I think I didn't really suceed as it was very big for me.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDP2fiycI/AAAAAAAACM0/mRGjU21u9Ns/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2815%29.JPG
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDQmlOkzI/AAAAAAAACM0/v2dmRjn9Vmg/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2817%29.JPG
Here I am in a centrifugal, it goes round and round really fast but I managed to get out before it started!
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDQ0y0zDI/AAAAAAAACM0/2pGQWqjboBo/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2818%29.JPG
But I just ended up here. This is used to eliminate bacteria with high temperature and low pressure.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S2NDROeu5WI/AAAAAAAACM0/7Gccp1N4R1E/2%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Labor%20%2819%29.JPG
The last moment I jumped at my host and after so many trouble I was very tired and we decided to go home. It was really fascinating and I hope I can do something like this again someday.

Bye,
iluaP

Ham, Germany - 30th January 2010

By: Mondfalke

Hello again!
It is very cold here this winter and all the people in Hamburg are waiting for the Alster to freeze. They are hoping for 20 cm of ice on the surface because then there could be a fair called Alstereisvergnügen on the lake. The last one was in 1997 and everybody was really eager for a new one. But the ice wasn't strong enough for a real fair, they just allowed that people may go on the ice. So we were, too!
We started on foot and this was still near the house of my host.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6BF5fFYI/AAAAAAAACNI/jJ0q8WMDmsY/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%281%29.JPG
We saw some people playing icehockey.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6Bqm7kBI/AAAAAAAACNM/Mgf2Lr8TJMQ/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%283%29.JPG
And then we arrived at the Alster and there were many people already there.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6CAyJoXI/AAAAAAAACNQ/Zh93rvTmEGY/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%284%29.JPG
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6CeiLHHI/AAAAAAAACNU/en1akQrSGOU/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%285%29.JPG
We had a great view to the inner city over the lake.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6C5tB3UI/AAAAAAAACNY/IPTFHV1-pkI/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%286%29.JPG
On the ice was also many snow.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6DEXSQNI/AAAAAAAACNc/AsLbil49PHk/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%287%29.JPG
In the background you can see the St. Michaelis church, the main church from Hamburg!
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6DcmIrZI/AAAAAAAACNg/Qp1yzwPFFLU/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%288%29.JPG
We walked around and enjoyed the ice and the snow.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6D8Ub3AI/AAAAAAAACNk/PFTiMi1tsuM/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%289%29.JPG

Here you can see the bridge which seperates the inner Alster from the outer part, on which we were.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6FmlgKXI/AAAAAAAACN4/3A65hRdCMtI/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%2814%29.JPG
You were not allowed to go near the bridge and cross over to the inner Alster as the ice is not strong enough there.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6F5_nGCI/AAAAAAAACN8/HFKoFyTyt9g/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%2815%29.JPG
We walked up the bridge and had a great view over the outer Alster in the twilight.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6GETQjpI/AAAAAAAACOA/pGClbPl0kYE/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%2816%29.JPG
Last we went to have a look over the inner Alster to the inner city. It was very beautiful!
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/S_Q6GX9gQdI/AAAAAAAACOE/yRNrnIdc8h4/3%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Alstereisvergn%C3%BCgen%20%2817%29.JPG
We were really cold afterward and went home to have some hot tea!

Bye,

Planica, Slovenia - 21st March 2010

By: Mondfalke

Hello!
I am very excited, today I will go on my first trip outside Germany and I will see my very first skijumping competition. As you know my trip to Braunlage ended in Goslar and in fact the competition in Braunlage was cancelled anyway. But the very best thing about it was that we were headed to the Skiflying Worldchampionchips in Planica in Slovenia. It is the biggest skijumping (skiflying) hill in the world and my host says, that everything around there is really beautiful, too!
We started in the evening and took the train. As we travelled all night we had a bed in the train but we didn't sleep very much as it was not very confortable.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQllPbO34I/AAAAAAAACOY/h5-qiH29Mog/4%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Planica%20%281%29.JPG
We had to change trains in Munich. Here you can see me with Hasi, another racoon which lives at my host's.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQllruFxII/AAAAAAAACOc/6M93lVTKeWw/4%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Planica%20%282%29.JPG
And here you can see some ICE-train which was on the other side of the platform while we waited for our train.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQlmDf2RCI/AAAAAAAACOg/DRn1YtGTST4/4%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Planica%20%283%29.JPG
The next day we went to the skijumping hill. We had really great weather with a lot of sun.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQlmSS-eLI/AAAAAAAACOk/mfoKjAEVEtQ/4%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Planica%20%284%29.JPG

We took some pictures were you can see the surrounding mountains and some of the great skijumping fans there. They were mostly from Slovenia as you can guess!
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQlna8O34I/AAAAAAAACOs/QeZgreBGFRQ/4%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Planica%20%286%29.JPG

And here is the skijumping hill again!
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQloCf4sXI/AAAAAAAACO0/O2UUY0QRyUg/4%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Planica%20%288%29.JPG
My host and her friends support the skijumpers from Kazakhstan, so they brought the flag with them.

On Friday we could see the last jump from Roar Ljoekelsoey, a Norwegian skijumper. He was very successful in his career but now he ended it to have time for other things. These are the people who waited for him after his jump.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQlpvXoHyI/AAAAAAAACO8/3f5yzx0g_YU/4%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Planica%20%2810%29.JPG
On Sunday, the final day, we took some pictures with the skijumping hill and the mountains again!

This was our last day and we had to go home afterwards. I hope I can visit this beautiful place again!

Nindorf/Hanstedt, Germany - 16th April 2010

By: Mondfalke

Hello everybody!
Today we visited the Wildpark Lüneburger Heide.
http://www.wild-park.de/
They have many different animals there but I was naturally mainly interested in the racoons but I will tell you about it later.
First we came along these beautiful ducks. They were together with the stork, you can see it in the back of the second picture.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuVXUq1oI/AAAAAAAACPk/N_Cqb337Nqs/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%281%29.JPG
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuV0BNBUI/AAAAAAAACPo/5qwoFqcJMso/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%282%29.JPG
Then we saw this peacock, he was allowed to walk free in the park.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuWoBd89I/AAAAAAAACPs/CrunDRZcRCk/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%283%29.JPG
These were some special cranes, I don't remember their name but there were really nice to look at.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuXH8XlDI/AAAAAAAACPw/0cBasEPvMKU/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%284%29.JPG
I really liked this chickens, they were somehow fluffy.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuX6lIwAI/AAAAAAAACP0/RvYQlz2s6aw/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%285%29.JPG
We saw many different animals, here are some more pictures with them and me!
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuYXd2s_I/AAAAAAAACP4/dWGAHFXTXOI/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%286%29.JPG
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuYwVsM8I/AAAAAAAACP8/0uStGrBimmQ/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%287%29.JPG
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuZQDNu1I/AAAAAAAACQA/FWijgEKUOaA/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%288%29.JPG
This mountain cock was really noisy, perhaps he was looking for a female.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuZ_8VNiI/AAAAAAAACQE/NV22nbCIBmc/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%289%29.JPG
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQualuISMI/AAAAAAAACQI/cfiq2Dbki5Q/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2810%29.JPG
Then we entered the free part of the park. The deer could run freely there and the visitors can feed it with special food you can buy in the park.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQubNph5MI/AAAAAAAACQM/_QeGdtQVciU/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2811%29.JPG
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQubhvE-XI/AAAAAAAACQQ/21OZ02KxaXA/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2812%29.JPG
If you have a really close look, perhaps you can see the capricorn on the rocks. But I think it is really hard to find!
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQucEZFkTI/AAAAAAAACQU/1yaBKwjuK0o/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2813%29.JPG
We took a short vacation and then we explored the park again.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQucvhQyII/AAAAAAAACQY/KmCuNKvV720/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2814%29.JPG
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQudKwJw2I/AAAAAAAACQc/rY_Djqq3908/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2815%29.JPG
These pairie dogs were really cute. One of them was making funny noises all the time but the others just searched for food.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQudkC8PpI/AAAAAAAACQg/3GoDNJdVr8I/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2816%29.JPG
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuePY9jfI/AAAAAAAACQk/xe2zLNBE-_c/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2817%29.JPG
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQuej5ALaI/AAAAAAAACQo/5Er46SJHmXg/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2818%29.JPG
These moose was really impressing. It was much bigger than I thought they would be.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQufPMnDSI/AAAAAAAACQs/JdCNROCEK04/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2819%29.JPG
Ha, then we saw a sign which showed us the direction to the racoons!
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TAQufv6jaFI/AAAAAAAACQw/ICxrMncUDIk/5%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Wildpark%20%2820%29.JPG
But first we had to climb the "Drei-Ahnen-Berg", which is said to be the highest hill in that area with 110 m. It didn't sound very high but we got a look over the surroundings from up there.

Before we finally arrived at the racoon's, we saw the reindeers but they weren't very cooperative in taking a good photo.

And now the racoons! Well, I thought so but everything turned out a little different. This was undoubtedly the home of the racoons.

But as you can see, it was completely empty. No racoon was anywhere to be seen except of me.

All my calling was useless... I think we were a little bit early and they were in really deep sleep.
So we continued our walk and met these arctic foxes.

I was a bit afraid when we arrived at the brown bears. They are so much bigger than I am.

Fortunately they were safe in their area and we could get a great look.

Afterwards there were the wild pigs. It didn't smell very good but the little pigs were really cute.

In the park they try to teach the children a few things about the animals to be seen there and so I learned that the normal racoon has a weight about 12 kg.

After the coati we saw some owls. They were all asleep as it was still day but it wasn't less impressive so.

On the next picture you can see lots of bunnys and guinea pigs and also some birds. I think they were used as food for the animals in the park but they are cute anyway.

They also had a reptile house in the park. But we only saw the turtle as they were cleaning the other compartments then.

We had another short break. I thought it looked really scary!

The last animals we saw were the otters. They are really rare in nature and so I was glad to see them.

I was a bit disappointed because we didn't see any racoons but we met so many other fascinating animals that it was a great day anyway!

Hamburg, Germany - 9th May 2010

By: Mondfalke

Hello!
Today we will go and see the harbour of Hamburg! It is a really special day for Hamburg today in more than one way.
First the harbour celebrates its 821st birthday. This celebration is held every year in the beginning of May. Many ships are around then and we could see many of them!
First we saw some sailing ships.

On the next picture you can see the "Alter Elbtunnel". It is a tunnel under the river Elbe but today it is just used by tourists and a few other people as there is a new and much bigger one.

We continued our walk around and saw some more ships and some parts of the harbour.

This is perhaps the most popular ship in the harbour of Hamburg, It is called "Rickmer Rickmers" and you can visit it and have a close look. Most of the time it is in the harbour but once a year it took a short trip to prove its functionality!
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TARJ807kd_I/AAAAAAAACTI/jxdVVvxyTG4/6%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Hafengeburtstag%20%2811%29.JPG
This is the Swedish sailor church, there are ones from Finland, Norway and Denmark, too but we couldn't see them from where we were.

And more ships!

My host told me that we will also visit the harbour for the cruisers and we had to walk through a new part of Hamburg called "Hafencity". The have really strange houses there.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_OF-vzidW69c/TARKBfRWUpI/AAAAAAAACT0/Z6qteWkHH20/6%20-%20iluaP%20-%20Hafengeburtstag%20%2822%29.JPG
There was only one criuse ship there when we arrived.

Then we left the harbour and went to the Millerntorstadion. Today were the last games of the second German football league and the FC St. Pauli went up into the Bundesliga (the first league). Everybody was very happy and there was a great party at the stadium and at the Reeperbahn.

I have seen really much today and now I am very tired! I hope to see more of Hamburg soon!
