I Can See Clearly Now

"I Can See Clearly Now", a feel good song by Johnny Nash.

The semester has just begun less than one week ago and I already got two presentations, two essays, as well as one exam on my schedule; more to come. The essay and presentation I'm actually looking forward to are both gonna be about the Viking Age settlement Hedeby (German: Haithabu). It's just such an interesting topic.

Since our group has to give that presentation on Hedeby on the 5th of May already, I'm gonna treat myself with a ticket for the Berlin show of one of my favourite bands, She & Him. The singer of the duo is Zooey Deschanel, who also starred in movies such as (500) Days Of Summer, which is a really good one, and Winter Passing alongside Ed Harris.

I'm gonna visit Hedeby next weekend, but until then I won't have the chance to take any new pictures. Therefore I'm just gonna upload a photograph from my archives.

It's so close to the US-Mexican border that my car was stopped and searched by a police patrol. 



Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week!

Cheers, you too! The Vikings are amongst the ancient peoples I find most interesting... it's amazing how many countries they visited; they've been everywhere from Newfoundland to the Arab World.

Dominic Doherty said...

Glad you like it Brooke! No, I didn't cross the border and I had no intention to do so either... with all this drug war going on south of the border... no way...
