What’s your favorite dinosaur?

Ask my niece what her favorite bird is and she will answer: The robin.
It’s probably simply the only bird that comes to her mind; she knows this one because it’s on the cover of one of her picture books.
But isn’t that a stupid question to ask anyway?
Come on: What’s your favorite dinosaur?

The medieval castle

How does a medieval castle last through centuries without ever being destroyed or even seriously damaged?
By being located in a totally remote and secluded spot, so that no enemy ever found it.

Tiring out the thoughts (in Salzburg)

Three days in Salzburg, walking around in that small city all day, alone, just walking and thinking.

Letting the thoughts in your brain run wild, without discriminating between harmless banalities and those thoughts that keep you from sleeping at night.

Until, after two days, your brain grows tired of mulling over the same thoughts again and again, and the thoughts grow tired of being encaged in your boring brain.

So finally, after two days of walking, walking and thinking, legs tired, brain tired, you manage to sleep soundly at night.
