  1. Just a quick word: The healing process of my right hip is very slow. It will probably take another month before I can walk again without pain on my walking stick. Just like before the accident with the car that hit me. If everything had gone normally, I would already have been in SEA for 6 weeks; namely since the end of November 22. But in mid-November I got a severe flu with fever, cough, cold, etc. I had a lot of pain. I had to cancel the flight. Then on 9 December a car hit me and I had to stay in hospital for three and a half weeks. What a shit! The healing process is slow. Maybe - I emphasise maybe - I can fly in the middle / end of February. I pass the time by watching Pattaya videos from recent times. Thailand 365 - MJ Travel Vlogs - Asian Night - David Strachan Pattaya - Pattaya Info - Pattaya 101 - Thailand Travel - and the German-Thai couple Mot and Frank (there are a few more vbloggers I won't name now). The weather is atrociously bad. Thick grey clouds, rain, between 5 and 9 degrees during the day, the days are dark and the nights are long, a single grey shit. The weather forecast says that next week winter will come with snow and temperatures below freezing. Not that as well. No, thanks. Bangkok, Nana Plaza, Pattaya, you are far away - sigh.
  2. no, it was an older, experienced nurse, nothing exciting. I often have difficulties with the cardiovascular system; e.g. high blood pressure attacks. They come out of nowhere, for no reason, and then the values go up to over 200", e.g. 212 : 96, which is highly dangerous.
  3. Monday 19. Decemer 2022 I am sitting on the edge of the bed - in front of me on the side table - my notebook. I am trying to write a small report - with a few pictures - currently from 19 December 2022. My hospital room with my bed. A thick warm pullover on the bed. Then someone from the hospital staff - a nurse - takes a few photos of the sick Charly. A car hit me and hit me in the hip. The hip bone on the right side is broken and hurts. I do one hour of walking exercises every day with a physiotherapist. Typical hospital food - kale, Kassler - smoked pork chop, a small Mettwurst. a yoghurt and a drink. Not to forget potatoes. There is mustard for seasoning. Live: The nurse comes and measures the blood pressure 131:79 and the pulse 90. The pulse is much too high. Shit. The doctor is coming soon, will explain the results of the blood tests to me and he will give a prognosis when I will be able to walk again without complaints - in about 4 weeks. Shit. Greetings from the hospital bed Nasiadai
  4. Many thanks Coss, for your rdcovery wishes and your optimism. I'm having a run of bad luck at the moment. First the corona illness, then the flu with a bad cough, and on Friday 9.12.22 the accident with the car. I had to cancel and postpone my flight twice. Now I hope that I will be fit again in about three weeks and can fly at the end of January.
  5. I had an accident. I was hit by a car. I must stay 3 weeks in hospital. Scheiße .... Regards
  6. I have become ill. A strong cough, slight fever, aching limbs. The typical signs of flu. Scheiße!!!! Shit! I had to rebook, inform my Thai buddies that I would be late. Now I'm going back to bed. Drink camomile tea with honey.
  7. Biden will not run for re-election a second time. It is difficult to say who will take his place among the Democrats. The midterm elections have shown one thing very clearly: There is a narrow but clear majority among US citizens against Donald Trump and his Trumpism! The Trump-style Republicans have suffered a clear defeat! My personal opinion: Thank God! The Senate is clearly in Democratic hands. My hope, my personal wish: May Ron DeSantis enter the presidential race for the Republicans. The newly elected governor of Florida has won a convincing election victory. He got 59.4 percent of the vote, about 20 percentage points more than his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist. Republican Ron DeSantis has every chance of winning the presidential election in two years. Final comment: The Republicans have to shut Trump and his confused and insane supporters down within the party. Only then can DESantis win.
  8. On Sunday at 8 am I drove with my sister from Düsseldorf to my flat in Buxtetown. There we tidied up for 4 hours. That means my sister cleaned out my three wardrobes and my kitchen cupboards.! She stuffed seven to eight big blue plastic bags full of trousers, jumpers, underwear, shirts, socks etc. Even my collection of ties fell victim to her clearing-out mania. Everything gone and off with the clothes into the old clothes containers. All these containers in Buxtehude are now full of my clothes. I was able to save my Luftwaffe lieutenant's uniform from their sorting mania. Thank God! She also disposed of old kitchen utensils and a lot of crockery. Old pots, pans, glasses, cooking utensils ... oh my goodness, what a lot of things have accumulated over the decades that you don't need now any more but you spent a lot of money on back then. Then a quick vacuuming and mopping. Everything is ok and clean. At the end of the day I could feel every muscle in my body; I went up and down the stairs with full bags and boxes about 18 times. On Monday the rubbish collection comes and takes everything away. Many thanks, my dear sister.
  9. The past weekend was quite turbulent; 4. till 6. November. After an eventful Saturday morning and noon full of adventures and a 3-hour conversation with my (old) university friends, I went to the Wellnetz bar, pub, restaurant, Kneipe in Duesseldorf-Oberbilk in the evening. There they were all gathered again: Gisela, the shop assistant who sits at the checkout at Aldi. Hans, the forklift driver, the very one who brags about the stacking fork, the guy from the DIY store who stands by the saw, the timber salesman, the security man, Andi the scaffolder, a Germanic oak tree ... and many others. And there are the Fortuna 95 fans, the Düsseldorf football club that currently plays in the second division. And there is Frau Eva, who runs the whole place as a buffetiere, a buffetteuse, a waitress, also as a soul comforter. Frau Eva knows them all: especially those with thirsty throats, the weary and the burdened, the secret poets and philosophers, She wipes the counter, adds paper napkins and taps twelve beers from the barrel. The glasses of Altbier are quickly brought to the thirsty throats at the tables and bar tables, where they are received by the guests with loud hellos. The door opens and closes, people come, people leave, it's always been like this since the big bang. Frau Eva has a heart of gold. This is also true for Sabrina and Melanie, the other girls who work here as service staff. Sometimes a low has taken hold of my soul; but when Frau Eva or Sabrina or Melanie do their service in the Wellnetz there's a rainbow over the pub. And I know it will be all right. The three ladies always have a smile, a shoulder, a comforting, an encouraging word ... I eat a farmer's omelette with fried potatoes and fried bacon. Jörg, the boss and cook and landlord - all in personal union - cooked and fried it for me. My dear guys, peoples, the food at Wellnetz is really good; and there are big portions. They think big here! The boss alias cook is not stingy, not stinted here. I say to Sabrina, the landlord's daughter - now just a young mother: "I could, after our round of talks at Cafe Bazzar has broken up, go out to eat somewhere on Heinrich-Heine-Allee or at the Köbogen, in the center of Düsseldorf ( where it's most expensive 5555), but I'll come to you. Why? In the places there, the portions are only half as big, but the price is twice as high! And it certainly doesn't taste any better there. And afterwards you quickly go to a chip shop to satisfy your hunger." https://www.facebook.com/Wellnetz
  10. But thank GOD! The Netherlands shows how to properly combat climate terrorism by climate radicals: Prison sentences for climate stickers in Holland: Vandalism of Vermeer painting Here is a short summary from the German and Dutch press: Attack on the world-famous painting "The Girl with the Pearl Earrings" by Jan Vermeer from 1665: The judge called it a "shocking act". The climate-change hoodlum was punished with two months in prison. It's not just in Germany: climate chaotic cultists are also vandalising other countries. In The Hague, the fanatics have glued themselves to a world-famous painting and spilled tomato sauce on it. It is true that the painting itself remained intact because it was additionally protected by a pane of glass. But the frame and the back were damaged. It is my girl: the world-famous painting "The Girl with the Pearl Ears" by Jan Vermeer from 1665. The Dutch judge spoke of a "shocking act". The climate-change hoodlum was punished with two months in prison. Look here: https://youtu.be/iFCsH1zq0L8 33 and 34 second - this is one way to honour this work of art.
  11. There has been an attack on my beloved girl. The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer. Her picture hangs in the form of a reproduction about 1.60 m away from me above my desk. I have reported on the only real QUEEN of this world. Fanatical climate terrorists have glued themselves to the painting and doused themselves with tomato sauce; some splashes of the tomato sauce have also hit the painting. Thank God the picture is protected with a pane of glass. look here: https://youtu.be/oOM1560mczg I am appalled and saddened.
  12. For weeks, Europe has had the following weather situation: A high pressure area in the east - now over the Balkans - and low pressure areas over the North Atlantic have been shovelling warm air from the Mediterranean to Central Europe. We have very warm temperatures. On Saturday and Sunday 30 October we had 20 degrees! That's why I went to Düsseldorf last Friday. There is a lot to do in our garden. The weeds are growing like crazy because of the long-lasting warmth and humidity. They are literally exploding. I have to work in the next few days and also mow the lawn again. Oh my goodness. On Saturday, in sunshine and 20 degrees, I strolled through Düsseldorf's city centre. Outside the cafes and pubs many people were sitting and enjoying the warm rays of the sun. There was a fun and happy atmosphere everywhere. Then we met in our trendy café. Hot discussions over 3 hours about the current politics in Germany. The coalition of Greens, Social Democrats and Free Democrats are riding our country into the shit. Energy and climate plots. Just keywords: It is a catastrophe. German small and medium-sized enterprises - the backbone of the German economy - are going bankrupt by the dozen because of this policy. What follows is deindustrialisation, unemployment and an unimagined loss of prosperity. But the German voters want it that way. They agree with this policy. They vote for these parties again and again in the current elections. I no longer understand my fellow Germans. Once again they follow the state authorities. Government command, we follow you - unconditionally, even if the path leads into the abyss. We had that twice in the last century. The Germans learn nothing from their history. Here is a video with English subtitles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sm1ohcnbkSo
  13. I was in a compartment with an Australian of about the same age. After a good hour's ride, he opened the window and after a few moments he asked me to look out as well. We were passing a village. Children and mothers with their children were standing along the railway line. Train passengers were throwing them sweets like candies, small chocolates, chocolate bars, biscuits and small cakes (all well wrapped in wrappers or cellophane). We both looked at each other with a astonished and startled look. Then the Australian said to me: "If I had known, I would have bought a whole bag of sweets and made the children happy." I nodded in agreement. But we both had our fun watching.
  14. This young Burmese lady really wanted to be photographed with a white foreigner. (Obviously she didn't care that I was already stone old and could have been her father. I am sure she much preferred to be photographed with a young man. But since there was no one available, she simply chose the old cripple, namely me). Anyway, she asked me to take a few photos of her and then she wanted to be photographed with me afterwards. I took a few shots of her and then I made a few adjustments on the camera and then handed the camera to her friend. Good old Charly - with a "borrowed daughter" in Maha Bandula Park downtown Yangon. Memories, sweet memories ...
  15. Maha Bandula Park is a green oasis, the green lung, in the heart of downtown Yangon and offers a beautiful view of the surrounding historical buildings, including the City Hall, the Supreme Court, all built by the British. I borrowed this picture from the internet. The most eye-catching feature of the park is the Independence Monument, a white obelisk about 50 metres high surrounded by two concentric circles of chinthe (half-lion/half-dragon deities). On an English-language website I found the following information about this beautiful park: When laid out by the British in 1868, the park was called Fytche Sq after Sir Albert Fytche, chief commissioner at the time. Later it was renamed Victoria Park to commemorate the queen whose statue used to stand where the Independence Monument is today. After independence, the park was renamed to honour General Thado Mahabandoola, a Burmese hero who conquered Assam and died in action in the First Anglo-Burmese War in 1824. For a year or two following the 1988–90 pro-democracy uprisings, the park was occupied by soldiers; many of the more violent events of the time took place nearby.
